Mother's Day

Monday, May 14, 2012

Dear Olive,
Every year, on mothers day (and a few other special dates), my Dad sends an email to Hayes, Anika and I. He tells us it was Mums dying wish that he never let us forget how much she loved us. Yesterday he wrote ...
I just wanted to remind you what a truly special Mum you had. I know you don't need reminding but I promised Rose that I would never let you forget how much she loved you. We were all so lucky to have her. She would be proud of each of you. I know you still miss her.
Every year, it makes me cry, and yesterday was no exception.
(Thanks Dad xxxx.)

Yep,you can definitely see how much your mum loved you in this pic. As if it isn't heartbreaking enough that your lovely mum isn't here but thinking about Kevin crying every time he writes one of your mum's love emails makes me feel really sad. In spite of this, I hope you had a lovely day with Olive. xxx

You are a completely beautiful Mother, Kellie. I can only imagine how much you must long for her, especially now with Olive. I hope you find some comfort in that beautiful girl of yours. Your Mum couldn't be anything but proud.
