I am determined Mother’s Day will be okay. Regardless of the past, ‘I’ am a mother, and a decent one. Not a perfect one, but one who cares for my children, loves them, and chooses to consider their emotional needs.
I am not big on celebrations like Mother’s Day, Valentines Day, but my children obviously want to celebrate Mother’s Day and I want them to have that and be happy.
Had some lovely gifts, including a handmade heart necklace, with my 6 year old’s thumb prints in it, which is so special to me, and gifts like that mean more to me, than bought gifts.
I am determined to focus on good stuff today, because I realise ‘I’ deserve that too.
I’m staying away from social media and anything triggering and that is needed self care.
Yesterday, I helped my son make a bird’s nest out of sticks and clay, which he decided to put in a tree this morning, with stones in there for eggs and our owl as the mummy bird, which is so cute!
So I am celebrating the cuteness of my children and how being a mum is special and a privilege I don’t take lightly.
