The Gallery - Mother Love

With it being Mother's Day on Sunday just gone, Tara has given the prompt of 'Mother Love' for The Gallery this week and also dedicated entries to World Vision's Mother's Day Campaign which is asking for people to share their best 'mother' moments that make them smile.

It was actually my Mum's 66th birthday on Mother's Day so it made it even more special and the reason I've chosen my Mum as the theme for The Gallery.

It's hard for me to pinpoint the thing that makes me smile the most about my Mum.  I think just knowing that despite having had breast cancer twice she's still here with us.  I'll always be so thankful for that.


This photo of my older Sister, my Mum and myself was taken on my daughters 1st birthday just over a year ago.  Since then my Mum has been going to Weight Watchers and has lost well over 3 and half stone. I'm so proud of her, she's looking fantastic.

Mum is the mother of two daughters and I am the mother of one (so far) and I hope that my daughter and I have as much of a bond as my Mum and I do.

Even though I don't say it all the time, I love my Mum so much.


Now head over and view all the other mummy moments...
