There's a lot I can say about this amazing lady that has given me everything.
She gives up so much so that I can be safe, happy and fed. There is nothing she won't do for her children and as much as I hate to say it I often take her for granted. My Mum is a beautiful person, able to make me laugh at any moment. Even Abraham Lincoln said he owed everything to his mother.
They are there in the good times and the bad, the beginning and they see it through to the end.
When I lose her I just know I'm going to be stuck with all her saying and phrases, most passed down from her mother. I'll remember the words she changed like "supermarkup" instead of supermarket and "flutterby" instead of butterfly. The time I have with her is precious, I hope I never forget that. You never truly realise how much you need them till their gone. My mother s my rock, my heart and my life. She is what made me me and I'll be forever in her debt. I love you mum I always will.

I THINK MY MUM IS AN ALIEN,
NO REALLY , HONESTLY, IT’S TRUE,
SHE SAYS SHE HAS EYES IN THE BACK OF HER HEAD,
WELL THAT’S A FLIPPIN’ BIG CLUE.
SHE MAY BE TELE PATHETIC AS WELL,
'COS SHE ALWAYS KNOWS WHEN WE LIE,
AND SOMETIMES WHEN SHE’S IN A TERRIBLE RUSH,
SHE SAYS THAT ‘ SHE’LL JUST HAVE TO FLY’.
I THINK SHE PROBABLY HAS SUPER POWERS
WITH X-RAY VISION TOO,
SHE SAYS SHE DOES THE WORK OF TEN MEN EACH DAY,
AND TELLS DAD, ‘ I CAN SEE RIGHT THRU’ YOU’ ."
Happy Mother's Day to all.
Acerules- what you wrote about your mother melted my heart. Your words will be treasured by your mum I am sure. She is very lucky to have such a wonderful beautiful daughter, inside and out;) Thanks for sharing your day with her.
Hi I'm Acerules. Thank you Margo I hope you have a good Mother's Day.
Acerules....that was Beautiful...Your mom is so lucky to have such a sweet girl...and I know you feel the same...
Thank you Kathy I really am lucky. I hope you have a happy Mother's Day yourself.
Ah! What a great message :)
I'm also curious about the chicken croissants.
That's easy. Buy some croissants, buy a hot chicken, grab a vegetable plastic bag from the vege section, put it on your hand, pull the chicken apart, put the chicken meat in the croissants. Yum. Ham and cheese is more usual, but live dangerously!
Yesterday I was in the city with Ace. I made yummy wraps from half a hot chicken they cut up for me, and some freshly made flat bread. We sat in the poshest part of the shopping centre (mall) to eat, seated on comfy couches on carpet. Self assembled is so much cheaper when you're saving money (in our case for her 16 th party).
