I wanted to be a mum for a few years before I got to be one
(I have PCOS, if anyone is familiar with it, it's a tricky hormone thing that can affect fertility)
Mothers Day was always hard.
Now I am a mum, and I feel thankful and grateful and I appreciate my two.
I don't take them for granted. I don't take being a mum for granted.
Today, I am enjoying being a mum.
I am also holding in my heart my friends (and those in general) who want to be mums, but aren't for various reasons.
I also don't take having a mum, alive, well, living 20km away, for granted.
During Uni, 4 of my friends mums died over a few short years.
Since then, some of my friends mums have died, some have got dementia.
Today, I have seen my mum and made a lemon tart for her.
For those of you whose mum isn't around, I am thinking of you, and holding you in my heart too.
