This morning when I told my children to get ready, so I could drop them at their Nan’s both not knowing each other had said exactly the same thing ‘You look like Nan’.
For me this is an ultimate compliment, my Mum is a strong, caring, loving and wonderful person. She is selfless in so many ways and is always there to help when ever I need her.
* My parents separated when I was 7 and I lived with my Dad. I saw my Mum regularly although my Dad has always found it hard. I don’t think about it really, but I do look like my Mum and have we do have a lot in common when it comes to personality. Seeing me must be a constant reminder to my Dad of my Mum. And the real sad bit is that my Dad has never got over my Mum leaving, he will say ‘hi’ if he has to, but that’s it. If he knows she is about he will just not come to see me. And I have learnt over the years just to let it go and not to worry if that’s what he wants to do that’s his right. *
