I am Grateful for my amazing Mum.

This is my first week posting here at Heavenly Homemaker and I am so happy to be here.
I am grateful this week for an amazing Mother. I know alot of people think that we have a great mother but I have to say I think my Mum takes the cake ;o)

Her life has not always been easy, she married young and had 3 children in 4 years, my sister who was born when I was 2 was born with unexplained seizures, some days she had up to 10 seizures and my early memories are of the big scary heavy hospital doors that to this day I can see as if was yesterday.

My sister ended up with a acquired brain injury from the seizures and to this day requires full time care, My brother who came along right in the middle of my sisters worst run of seizures was a lovable handful from the start, a bouncing full of energy typical boy ;o)

Over the years my Mum has worked 2-3 Jobs while raising us as a single mother (my father left her for another women in my early teens).I do not remember a single time that she was not there for us. She in my adult years has been my best friend, and more like a sister than a mother. She has given me wise advice, has lovingly support us when she hasn't always agreed and help pick up the pieces when things have fallen apart. She has been amazing, wise, loving and my rock.......I love her more than I can express,


  1. Hi, This is a friendly reminder about tomorrow, it’s “What would your children say?” Wednesday. It would be wonderful to hear the silly and funny things your children say and do. I hope you will participate in the linky party.

  2. Welcome to Gratituesday! These posts are always uplifting to read and humbling to write. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

    Sounds like you have been blessed with an incredible mother. I can also relate to that, I am so grateful for my mom too.

  3. You are so lucky to have a great mom!
