Still miss my darling mum
My mum passed away suddenly on 29th April 2012 aged 65 when I was 32 with a 3 year old and 8 week old baby. Although the pain has eased, I miss her everyday but I really miss her today. She would have loved to have be with my 5 year old daughter and 2 year old son and I miss spending time together doing the normal things a mother and daughter do- going for coffee, chatting, shopping. I miss her sound advice. I yelled at my children earlier for messing about at the dinner table and feel like a rubbish parent. I just need a break sometimes and my dad isn't my mum and my husband, although wonderfully supportive, isn't the same support as a mum on the end of the phone. I long for her hugs and reassurance sometimes. My dad has moved on and found a new lady in the last month or so and I'm happy for him, but a mum is irreplaceable and it sometimes feels I will never get over this or be as happy as I used to be.
