“Motherhood is a choice you make everyday to put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own. To teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing, even when your not sure what the right thing is… and to forgive yourself over and over again for doing everything wrong.”
Sometimes I sit and watch you, just breathing in and out
And I’m staring at perfection of that there is no doubt
You came into my life just 8 years ago
And I count my lucky stars that I get to watch you grow
From the day you arrived you gave my life a meaning
And being a mum to you, well it’s a special kind of feeling
It’s the only thing that I have ever felt I did completely right
It’s not been easy though, some days I’ve had to fight
You make me laugh each and every single day
And sometimes you make me angry with the things you do and say
But I wouldn’t change a moment of the life we have together
And my promise to you is to cherish and love you forever
Being your mum has bought good days and bad
Times when I’ve been happy and times when I’ve been sad
But that’s all part and parcel of being responsible for another
And there’s nothing I’m prouder of then being your mother.
I’ve been lucky enough to have my own special mum who despite the struggles has never made me doubt her love for me. You taught me everything i know about motherhood and if i can be even half the mum that you have been to me then I count ruby as being very lucky.
Thank you for always putting my heart ahead of your own. Love you mum.
