Super + Mom = Superhero

Every day I stand in awe, witnessing daily acts of supreme motherhood, not only by my dear mother, but by mothers everywhere. When I'm on the bus (yes I do take the bus lol), or train, on the tube, going for walks or when I'm traveling to different places around the world, I see mothers everywhere, from all walks of life. How do they do it? How do they make motherhood look so easy, when I know it's a tough 24/7 job. They really are the unsung everyday Superheroes, giving so much of themselves, endlessly, for the love of their children. Today especially (but we should be celebrating our mothers, grandmothers, & great grandmothers before us - every day), I salute all the superhero mothers across the globe, for making our lives more vivid, inspiring, meaningful and beautiful. 


I worship my mother. I don't know how she got my older sister and I to stay on the path of righteousness our whole lives, but she did, and she did it with style, grace, and a bit of feistiness too! She is a mother and a best friend - all wrapped into one Superhero Mama. lol I count my blessings everyday for having the kind of mother I have. She's tiny, but mighty (only 4'10", like Kylie) but with loads of gusto for life, family and friends. She is my rock, my best friend, my shoulder to cry on, and someone who stalks me (I say that endearingly, of course) everyday, from Canada. lol But I wouldn't have it any other way. We've had our ups and downs like any mother-daughter relationship, but I realize more and more everyday, that the disagreements we had and have sometimes, all have a purpose, -  a rhyme and a reason. I've learned so much from my mother, and she has played a huge part into shaping me into the woman that I am today. She still 'moulds' me in her own way, lol, (doesn't matter how young or old you are, our mothers will always care about us), and everyday, more than I care to admit, lol, I am a bit like her. But that's more than okay,  - after all, I am my mother's daughter, and I'm proud and honoured to be Jenny's daughter. :) 


For those who have lost their mothers or grandparents, I hope it is a comfort in knowing that they are watching down on us, like angels, - like Superhero Mothers do. We carry them in our hearts and in our souls forever. 

I treasure the time I have with my Mom. I never had the chance to really get to know my maternal or paternal grandmothers, they both passed, when I was 8 and 11 years old. But I managed to have some time with both of them, and they were stunning and remarkable women. I know where my mother and father get their wonderful qualities from! 


It's quite a wonderful feeling to know that each of us carry a bit of our mothers, grandmothers, - and generations of the incredible women before us. I celebrate that today, and the tomorrows to come. Superheroes = Supermoms. Happy Mother's Day to all the beautiful mothers out there in the world. You really are a miracle. 


Yours Always,

  3. Happy Mother's Day Mummy! Thanks for teaching me how to skip rope, how to cure a grazed knee with a kiss, how to always be myself, how to work hard for what I want & above all how to love ♥ Thanks for teaching me to never reject the hand of friendship as I'll never know when one day it'll be me that needs a friend, how to do my makeup (less is more haha), for teaching me to always have faith in myself because I really am able to do anything. Thank you for not letting me give up on my dreams, for supporting my dreams. Thank you for giving me the best brother and 2 sisters I could ever have wanted, & supporting them in their path as well. Thank you for teaching me that it is important to be kind. I am me because of you and dad. Love you round the world & back wee Butterbean xo p.s. Still not sharing a bottle of wine with ya tho ;)

    Oh that's so sweet & absolutely right those of us lucky enough to still have our parents/grandparents with us should cherish them every day as we never know when they'll be gone. We're lucky to have them & we are lucky to have you Karen! :) xxx

  6. This made me smile so, so much. I completely agree with it all. I adore my mum. We have our stupid little rows but she's always there, always telling me how proud of me she is well in actual reality, I'm the one who should be proud.
    My mum and my nan are the two people I know I can depend on, forever.
    I have such great respect for mothers everywhere. It must be the hardest job ever (& probably the cause for most grey hairs:p) especially if your child is anything like me, haha!
    I live every day to make my mum proud of me. No matter what happens, as long as I make my mum proud, I'll be happy. When my mum went into hospital the other week, I realised how close we actually are, I missed her.
    I'll love her forever.

  7. Beautiful. We should appreciate our amazing Mums every day :) Special thoughts not just to those who have lost Mums and Grandmothers, but also to those Mums who have lost a child. Today is a hard day for many but still a day for celebrating that special and unique relationship that a Mother can have with her child xx
