I miss her smile. I miss her laugh. I miss her hugs. I miss her wisdom. I miss her on the side-lines of the hockey pitch supporting me and my team playing hockey – she would be there come rain or shine. I miss everything about her.
I have so many special memories with Mum, it’s hard to pick my fondest. However, I keep being taken back to a couple of weeks before we lost Mum, on my sister’s wedding day – getting ready all together, sharing a glass of prosecco, chatting nonsense and giggling. I just remember being so happy in that moment and thinking how perfect it was. I will never ever forget the twinkle in Mum’s eye.
I am running the London Landmarks Half Marathon in April in memory of my Mum, raising money for Hospice in the Weald. Mum’s father benefitted from the charity in his later years and, since then Mum enjoyed volunteering at the Hospice as a finance administrator. I never thought I would be running anything like this and anyone who knows me will know how much I dislike running without purpose (or without chasing a hockey ball!). But now I have a reason to run – someone to run it in memory of, whilst raising money for a charity who provide essential care to those who need it most.
If I could spend Mother’s Day with Mum, we’d probably be going on a dog walk as a family, having a roast or a takeaway and watching tv together. Lots of coffees throughout the day and maybe a bit of gardening if the weather was nice. I remember on Mother’s Day during lockdown we had a picnic in the garden, trying to make it as special as possible.
