It's a special day that does tug at the old heart strings. My mum sadly passed away almost six years ago to the day. She was the kindest, most patient, loveliest woman on the planet and I still miss her everyday.
However although I am very much mum to my three boys, when my niece Louise turned 18, my sister also sadly died, and as she was an only child we almost immediately became inseparable.
I know I'm not her mum, but she is almost certainly the closest to a daughter I'll ever have. So Mother's Day is full to the brim with all sorts of memories and emotions "chez Dawson" The photo above was taken of the two of us at a Hollywood glam night recently.
The picture on the left is of my son, he may be the youngest of my three boys, but he's by far the cheekiest!! He commented the other day upon the realisation that he was now officially over 6ft, that wasn't it funny how he was the youngest member of the family but the tallest, and I am the oldest and the shortest?!
Happy Mother's Day indeed!!
