When I think about the important women that have been in my life, there have been many that have made an impact on my life including many teachers, mentors and friends that I have. I have to share with you one that I don’t spend enough time celebrating, and that’s my Mum. She has been, and will always be, an absolutely inspiration to me. She is wise, beautiful and totally dependable no matter what the situation. She’s also has a little mischievousness and very funny too!
I was asked by Christy (a firm favourite of myself and my Mum) because March has both International Women’s Day and Mothers Day fall within it, would I like to have a pamper package to share with a special women in my life? I leapt at the chance my to celebrate my Mum, even as a small way of saying thank you to her for everything she has done. A chance to have some time to talk about all of those happy memories and enjoy some downtime together.
We were sent a lovely pamper package of two personalised bathrobes, some flowers from Bloom and Wild and Lanson Champagne.
Beautifully soft and cosy bathrobe, monogrammed with my Mums initials.
I am so incredibly lucky to have my Mum. I trust her judgement implicitly, I have rung and spoken to her in times of great sadness as well as joy and she was with me all the way no matter what. She is also both fair and totally balanced though. If I’m wrong she will tell me, if she isn’t sure, she will tell me that she needs to think it through before she lets me how she feels or offers advice. I think having someone who is level-headed like that in your life is so important. You can trust they will tell you the truth, look you in the eye and you know they will be there for you. That love and kind of relationship is rare and so incredibly special. I hope that I have the same relationship with my daughters. To love them no matter what, be there for them in times of need and celebrate their successes and to wipe away their tears.
We had a lovely afternoon, and chatted about the lessons she had taught me, one of which I’ve said to my daughter more than once over the last week, so it seemed very poignant.
Try your hardest, and whatever happens I will be proud of you. I will cheer you on, have your back and walk with you so you are never alone. Above all I love you.
P.S. The Champers was all drunk by this point….hic!
Thank you Mum for everything, I hope you love your robe!
