Our mums are everything, treat them that way
We often forget just how much our mothers do for us until we realise they are mere humans, not superheroes.
It's a wake-up call that we need to
appreciate our loved ones not just on
Mother's Day or Father's Day, but every
By JENNA VAN DER HOORN
They cry like their children, they bleed
like their children, they hurt like their
children and they get sick like their
children. The truth is, our mums do so
much for us and sometimes we just forget
how to appreciate them for it. You can
take your mum for granted sometimes.
You can push her away, make her feel like
you don't need her but she is always there
when you do need her. She never holds
past decisions you made against you, or
hold harsh words you may have said in a
time of anger against you.
But it comes back to realising that mum
isn't always going to be around, and you
start to realise just how much you need to
appreciate her when you may lose her
sooner than expected.
My mum was diagnosed with breast
cancer in 2010, and the magnitude of what
could happen struck our small, tightknit
family. We were a family of women who
argued, blamed mum for everything, never
thanked her, held everything against her,
and hid everything from her. She was a
background player in our game who fed
us, clothed us and provided for us, and it
struck us that we could lose her and never
truly took the time to appreciate her. It was
a time of adjusting. From crying due to not
getting our own way with her, to crying
with her. From whining about not getting
what we wanted to wishing we just had
her back to normal and nothing else, we
felt the true magnitude of the disease, as
well as the realisation of how much she
actually did for us.
So this Mother's Day, and every day
following, show your mum your true
appreciation for the part she holds in your
life. For being there, for helping you up
when you're down, for doing your
washing, cooking your tea, every small
thing needs to be appreciated. Three years
later, Mum is in remission. She is doing
great and has instilled hope in others
fighting the same disease. It's a wake-up
call that we need to appreciate our loved
ones not just on Mother's Day or Father's
Day, but every day. For Mother's Day this
year, I plan on giving my mum the best gift
a daughter can give, the knowledge that I
love her and appreciate everything she
does for me.
What are you doing?
