The World’s Best Mam

15 Mar

I am sure everybody says that their mam is the best mam in the world. Every Mother’s Day of my childhood I wrote these words into my homemade cards. Technically, nobody can know if their mam is actually the best in the world. I mean – they only have one right? No room for comparison. However I can say with 100% certainty that I DO have the best. How do I know? Well firstly, and perhaps most obviously, the brilliant job she did in raising myself and my brothers and the lovely childhood that she gave us. Also… I just know! She is the only person I want to hug when I am sad, everytime something bad happens I spend about an hour quite seriously considering sacking off work and hopping on the next train back to Newcastle just for a cuddle off my mam. She is the person I want to tell any good news to first, and someone who I miss every day. I remember being punched in school and holding my head up high – refusing to cry and give the bully that satisfaction. Of course, all of that went out of the window the minute my mam arrived and I was a sobbing mess. There will never be anyone in the world who can see right through you in the way that your mam can. She may say black when I say white, she may have three keys missing on her keyboard and infuriate me with her mispelt Facebook posts, and she may talk louder on the telephone than anyone would think humanly possible, but I wouldn’t change a thing.

I am very thankful that she put up with my constant chatter box ways as a young child, my ‘rebellious’ teenage years, and also now as an adult that she still has my ways to put up with as the minute that I walk through the door I act like I am 15 again! All of the years worrying about three children is hard work, and I am very grateful for her bearing that burden and still keeping her sense of humour.

Only after saying all of this, I wake up this morning and realise despite shipping gifts back to Newcastle via a visiting relative I have actually forgot to send her a Mother’s Day card! This week the house I was moving into fell through and my life has been work, house searching, work and more house searching. So Sonia Mullaney please take this (and the belated card you will receive mid-week) as my message to you. You are amazing and I love you lots!
