“The most important medicine is tender love and care.”
My Mum has been gone for nearly 20 years, but I still miss her. No matter how old I get,I always want my Mum when I don’t feel good. Her love was like an island in life’s ocean, a shelter from the world beyond. Her deep warm hugs and tender care when I was feeling sick would instantly make me feel better and I love that my kids ( now aged 19 ) say that me looking after them when they are ill is the best medicine ever.
As a mum, it is one of the hardest things to see your kids in pain, you would rather suffer it yourself. Telling a mum not to worry about her child is like telling water not to get wet, for a mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in this world. Being a mum is learning about strengths you didn’t know you had and dealing with fears you didn’t know existed. You think about your kids even when they are not with you; you will take a bullet, stand in front of a train or do anything to protect them and you will love them to the moon and back, infinity times and more!
To my kids, if I had to choose between loving you and breathing, I would use my last breath to tell you I love you.
“Of all the gifts that life has to offer, a loving Mother is the greatest of them all.”
P.S. I especially love you when my whole post accidentally disappeared (in notes) and you googled and discovered that shaking my phone would give me an undo option!
