An Open Letter to my Mum (Mam!)

Dear Mam,

Thank you for bringing me into this world, and spending every moment caring for me.

I know that I’m not the best at showing my emotions, but I appreciate everything that you’ve done for me. From spending hours on end helping me to revise, to watching my favourite TV programme with me just to make sure I don’t feel lonely. And, for recording about 100 episodes of Coronation Street for me to watch when I get home from Uni, even though I’ve still not watched a single one…Sorry!

Thank you for cooking me macaroni cheese, even though you hate the smell, and sacrificing a Yorkshire pudding just because you know I love them.

Thank you for being so kind.

Thank you for getting on with my boyfriend so well, and for treating him as part of the family.

You’re an inspiration to other mothers, and other women. You always put others before yourself, even if that means missing out on something that means a lot to you. All you ever want is to make others happy, especially me.

So, I’m sorry for being selfish sometimes, and for not always thanking you for everything you’ve done.

When we argue, I don’t mean any of the cruel things I say, and I wish I could take them back.

I don’t know what I would do without you. I dread the day you’re no longer in my life, and I know that I’ll regret every moment I spent being a moody teenager, or being stubborn after a silly argument.

I hope that you have an amazing Mother’s Day; I’ll try my best to treat you, and I hope you like your gifts.

Lots and lots of love,

The Best Daughter in The World (well, sometimes)
