To Mum, thank you

To Mum, thank you

Today is mothers day, a day to take a moment and be thankful for all of the things that our mothers do, and have done, for us over the years. It has become a very commercialised day, the shops go into pink overload, flowers overflowing and chocolates stacked high but underneath this highly stylised image of motherhood, there still remains the original intentions of the day. A chance to say thank you.

So thank you mum, for putting your career on hold, stretching your stomach beyond repair and bringing two little monsters into the world on October 19th, 1994.

Thank you for sacrificing your own wants and needs for my hopes and dreams.

Thank you for taking me to countless dancing and riding lessons and allowing me to explore my own passions.

 

Thank you for being my french plait guinea pig.

Thank you for staying up late making my Halloween costumes

 

 

and for letting me put together my own outfits…

 

Thank you for allowing me to take up your bed when I was sick or simply cold in the night.

Thank you for always encouraging me to learn, for answering a million stupid questions and showing me that intelligence doesn’t make you uncool.

Thank you for the time that you’ve put in to help me study, and for the ridiculous amount of stationary that I deemed necessary each year.
Thank you for bringing me endless cups of tea and for all of your support through my GCSE and A-Level exams.

Thank you for being with me through the darkest of days and telling me that ‘nothing will ever be that bad’

Thank you for letting me steal your clothes, expensive handbags and makeup. I promise they’re only borrowed and you can have them back one day.

Thank you for the numerous heart to hearts and girl talks that we have had over a cup of tea of glass of prosecco.

 


Thank you for letting me have smelly rats in the house, ducks in the bath and persuading dad to let me have a horse.

 


Thank you for pretending not to notice the expensive olives that I sneak into the trolly, oh and the cakes and prosecco…

Thank you for supporting me financially through university, without your help I would never have been able to live in this great city.

Thank you for every little decision that you have made that has helped to mould me into the person I am today. For being so open with me about life, sex and love. For being a smart, independent role model and for simply being my mum.

With love always, Sophia xx
