This is a photo of my Mum and I. I must be about 5 or 6 in this photo which makes my Mum the same age as I am now. The reason I decided to share this photo is because it is my Mum's birthday today. This photo is about 23 years old. How scary is that?
On days like today, it's hard to be 250 miles away. I'd love to be able to take her card and gifts to her house and spend her birthday with her and I know the kids would love to see her more often. However, because of this, we are much closer these days. We don't take each other for granted...or I don't take her for granted and my Mum doesn't resent me for taking her for granted. When we see each other, it isn't for long so we appreciate that time together.
Happy Birthday Mum. Hope you have a fantastic day.
