I saw this link via someone else and it raised many thoughts, could you really describe a loved one in 90 words? It’s pretty tough! But then so is deciding which woman in my life to write about. I am blessed with many strong women about me. I have a gaggle of sisters (although I think the commonly used terms for us all is coven!) A daughter who makes my heart burst with pride. A not quite daughter in law with an amazing musical talent and a heart of gold. A niece who will always be my baby Pootle. Cousins with a strength of character I can’t even imagine. Friends who have suffered and grown and nurtured and are still standing, although maybe with wobbly legs and a nervous tick, but standing none the less! And of course the Great and Momentous Queen of the collective – ‘G’ma A’, my blessed and beloved mother in law.
As I read this back to myself I realise that I have little reason to complain about my lot in life when I have such amazing people around me!
So my 90 words, they are of course about my mum. We didn’t lose her to cancer, although I have lost many of the women in my life to it There aren’t enough words to describe her really. The term ‘ force of nature’ was written about her. ‘Mother Earth’ never happier than when she was surrounded by babies, never more content than when she was feeding her family. Everyday she is missed by us all, not a day goes past without me thinking of her.
90 Words – My Mum
My creator, my support, my advice shop. How many times since I lost you have I picked up the phone to ask a question only to remember that you’re gone? Mother to everyone you met, unconditional love to everyone who needed you and a hoot at parties after a glass of sherry! I see your face in my sisters and it makes me sigh. We achieve new things and it makes me sad that you can’t share them. You left such a legacy as the world has never seen
But to the Breakthrough Breast Cancer part of this. Have your 90 words about an inspiring woman i your life and link it to everyone else using the link below. I have read most of the others and they made me shed a tear. We are lucky to have so many amazing women in the world, and lucky to have had those we have lost!
