Mothers Day Can Be Super Difficult When Mum Is No Longer Around.
It really doesn't matter whether this is the first Mothers Day since your mum passed or your 50th, it's hard.
So I've devised this handy guide to help you through and hopefully enable you to celebrate the life and memory of the lovely lady too!
There's no right or wrong way of using this guide. Read it all and follow it word for word, pick out the bits that resonate with you the most or read it then throw it away... If I can help just one of you by sharing the information in this guide I'll be happy.
Chocolate Superfood Smoothie!
If you can't face big meals right now or want something 'naughty but nice' this is perfect for you. It's super simple and will take you around 5 minutes to know up. You will need:
Add everything to a blender excluding the water and sprinkles. Add the water a little at a time so you get a smooth but nice thick consistency. Scoop into a glass and add sprinkles if desired.
Although you cannot see her voice or see her smile no more,
Your mother walks beside you still just as she did before.
She listens to your stories and she wipes away your tears;
She wraps her arms around you and she understands your fears.
It's just she isn't visible to see with human eye,
But talk to her in silence and her spirit will reply.
You'll feel the love she has for you - you'll hear her in your heart;
She's left her human body but your souls will never part.

Missing You Mum
There are no words to tell you, mum,
What loosing you has meant,
But now each day brings memories,
Of happy years we spent.
You'd want us all to smile again,
And that's just what we do,
Every time we reminisce,
With loving thoughts of you.
You're with us when each new day dawns,
And when we say goodnight,
Our guardian angel here on earth,
And heaven's shining light.
