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 .
