Happy Birthday Mum!

The first heartbeat I heard was yours
the first arms to hold me
The first one to show me love
The first one to teach me lessons in life
The first to hold me when I took my first steps
The first one to show me acceptance
The first one to comfort me when I needed most
The first one I called to share my news, good or bad
The first one to guide me through my struggles and my pain
The first one I think of when making decisions, big or small

Because I have always had a mother!

I miss you more than I could ever express,
The pain I feel in my heart is from one unimaginable day,
Now, afraid of life, my footsteps now on an unsure path
how I wish you could have stayed just a little while longer

My Mother, my voice of reason, my supporter, my teacher, my best friend,
My confidant, my nerve calmer, my problem solver, my peacekeeper, my chef,
my psychologist, my shoulder, my sunshine.
I dream of the day when we are reunited once again!

So today on your birthday, if you can hear me or feel me, I say:
You’re  loved and dearly missed without a doubt.

A South African currently living and working in Qatar always striving to contribute towards the “change” where emails will be short, love letters brave and every “thank you” note be hand written! As I move through life, I want to share my experiences - the interesting places I am so fortunate to visit, the amazing people I meet and the profound moments I am blessed with. When I am not working, you can find me watching Pretty Woman or Devdas for the 101th time, I watch obscene amounts of television without a trace of shame, surf the net, visit main stream or boutique hotels, restaurants and street food vendors, specialized coffee shops or the local karak drive through stores, High end stores to 5Riyal stores, Home Interior Stores or drive aimlessly looking for inspiration for my next post, the ultimate photo opportunity or simply write about what captures my imagination.
