I often worry that I have not been a good Mum.
I wonder if they could have a better life if only I had pushed them more when at school.
I know I managed the best I could on my own with two boys.
People are quick to criticize but in truth they have no idea what its like.
Even I would not admit how hard it was at times to be away from family and friends and have no help
We have been through a lot together and at times we have hated the sight of each other.
They are now becoming independent young men and I realize leaving them at weekends has been good for them.
They work out how to do things even when “Mum” is not here to ferry them around.
Nothing prepared me though for the Lovely Mothers day gifts they had for me on my return from walking The Cumbria way.
I expected Money for new walking socks but I also had a huge card… an ornamental pot of flowers with the message “if mums were flowers I’d pick you”….. and a DVD film called PS I love you.
When asked why they choose that film I was told because its a book your reading 🙂
So maybe I am not such a bad Mum after all 🙂
