A Mothers' love

My husband struggles with Mother's day (even though I am a mother) , he lost his mother when he was 17 . He comes from a large family and he was the baby of the family a last attempt at another girl. He has 5 brothers and one sister.

He went to work at 16 after leaving school he was a young one being only 15 when he took his exams and then he was straight into the working world where there should have been a Mothers guiding hand then was only his father who was very much struggling to keep it all together.

My husband didn't have his own bedroom till he was 14 it was a case of sleeping top to toe with his other brothers. his sister was a saving grace but when sibling responsibility comes a price that that is one of perhaps losing your childhood as you do your duty and raise your siblings.

He lost his mum to cancer breast and brain tumour she was a lovely lady whom I only ever spoke to on the phone when asking to speak to him who was then my boyfriend. So I wonder would would she make of me , I regret very much she will never meet her grandson.

So life was tough for him and the day serves as a reminder to him

We will get through the day we always do...

So here's remembering a very much missed mother .


  1. yes it is very very hard to have any enthusiasm for something when there are more bad memories associated with it than good ones.
    I can associate with that as I hate birthdays and Christmas as they do not hold any good memories for me.

  2. I can only imagine how tough that must be

  3. Mother's Day can be full of heartache for many people, I feel like this about Christmas.x

  4. Lovely old photo there.
    I understand from his point of view, but for fathers day. My dad isn't dead but I was an accidental pregnancy, he never wanted me and I don't know him or even where he lives or his real age.

    On fathers day it feels like I am just playing along. Faking it for my boys and their daddy. Still angry and feel empty I haven't known that feeling... Having A real dad not just a biological father.
