I know I’m not the only one who doesn’t have a mum any more to make a fuss of today. Last year was raw, only a few weeks after she died. This year is a more general ache. Mum was the heart of our family gatherings, loved being surrounded by her children and grandchildren, and this year we’re all scattered doing our own thing.
To everybody else who is missing their mother today, I feel for you. I’m going to look through some photo albums now to remember the good times.
