This week I have been acutely aware of missing my mum.
There has been a mum shaped whole in my days.
This is my third Mothers Day without her and she was not one for the soppy sentiments in Mothers Day cards.
But more than my pain and the pain of my children, I hate the fact that my wonderful sister in law now has to go though Mothers Day without her mum.
Her wonderful mum died on Friday night.
I hate that I am welcoming her in to a club that I do not want to be part of.
That I can not take away her pain and also that I know how much heartache she is going through.
I read this post by Becky and so want to echo the sentiment. Family is not something, family is everything.
To all the motherless on Mothers day
