Happy Other Mother’s Day

To all the ‘other mothers’, those special people who find us in our time of need, who love and accept us unconditionally for who we are, I give thanks to you today and every day.

March 26th in the UK is traditionally Mother’s Day.  A day to give thanks to the woman who gave birth to us and to acknowledge her and the gifts she has shared.  It is my hope that you have a wonderful relationship with your mother and enjoy each others company and  mutual love and respect.

Not all of us are lucky enough to have strong bonds with our mothers, for some they do not know of their birth mothers for others they are estranged and in conflict, many are bereft of their mothers in physical form and for some grieving the relationship they hoped for though I think it’s fair to say every woman on the planet has experienced the love of ‘another mother’.

Other mothers are those women who love us unconditionally and accept us for who we are warts and all.  They pick us up in times of need, hold us when we are at our wits end and encourage us to be our best.  They save us from ourselves on the darkest of nights and the hardest of days.  In short these women are amazing, angels in the physical form with hearts of gold who with their presence, for however long they are in our lives enable us to feel loved, valued, appreciated and held dear.

I have been so blessed to experience the love of ‘other mother’s’ throughout my life and I sincerely hope as you are reading this your mind wonders to the beautiful women who have graced your life and helped you on your way.

So whether it’s a step-mother, mother-in-law, sister, aunt, cousin, friend, landlady, teacher, college, therapist, friend, nurse, support worker or indeed a mother figure in spirit let us take a moment collectively together to acknowledge the love of those very special other mothers.

To be loved unconditionally is the greatest gift we can give to each other.  Where there is love there is hope and truth and light..

Thank you, other mothers for your love, your time and care, within me is part of you and your love of which I am ever grateful.

From my heart to yours with love x

One True Thing

Nothing in my experience compares to the unique connection and bond we experience with our pets.

An unspoken mutual agreement is made up of respect, caring and unconditional love.

Sensitive to each others needs and there for each other through all seasons our pets show us how to nurture in completeness, how to relax and how to enjoy simple pleasures.

Whether it be teaching us to take time out and sit in a sunny spot, enjoy the fresh air and freedom of walking or running in a park or to simply enjoy a cool drink of water we can learn so much from our furry friends.

Our pets allow us to be all of who we are, without judgement. I know many people who have conversations with their pets and would not dream of talking this way to others for fear of ridicule.

All creatures great and small put us in touch with the child like part of ourselves, where we can be lovely dovey,  soft and fluffy or airy fairy.

We find a place within ourselves, with their aid  where we roll about in glee or simply find stillness and peace within.  They teach us how to connect with our inner child, to laugh, to play or simply be.

Blessed are we who have the love of pets.

Whether your pet is sitting with you right now or is with you in spirit.  One true thing is your love for each other will live on in your hearts forever.

This blog is in loving memory of my neighbours cat Mac, who had a fondness for rubbing his face on my plants, who always came to see me when I put rubbish out or worked in the garden.  I’ve spent the last six years watching Mac grow up from a fluffy, scrawny kitten into a magnificent and beautiful young man.

I know I will miss him though I thank him for showing me unconditional love.

Girls Just Wanna have Fun!

It’s true that girl’s just wanna have fun and that could be a night out on the town until all hours or indeed a girls night in with your besties.

When was the last time you had a raucous girls night in?

An evening of laughter, sharing and caring, with a good few glasses of wine and some yummy nibbles thrown in?

The kind of night when you have laughed your heads off and been told things you can’t put that on your blog because you have been swarn to secrecy…you know who you are and I love you!

For me a girls night in every so often is a must!

It’s a place where you can talk your heart out, laugh, cry, share your hopes and dreams as well as sharing your troubles.  A place to let your hair down and kick off your shoes.

Do you have those kinds of friends too?

Friends that are there for you unconditionally?

Friends who will listen to you ranting while you’re having a moan?

Friends who are excited for you when they hear of your achievements?

Friends who will laugh and cry with you?

Woman are amazing!

If you haven’t had a girls night in for a while the benefits are huge.  Check out your diary, set a date and make some calls.

Over the years I’ve worked with people who have moved away from their home towns or for one reason or another want to make new friends.  There are so many women out there who might be in the exact same situation only to willing to have a girls night in our out for that matter.

Take risks.  Strike up new conversations.  Join some local classes in your area and find like minded people you’d like to be friends with.  The people you don’t know now may well turn out to be lifelong friends.
