My Mum is a nurturer. She has given every member of our family every opportunity to grow into whatever we wanted to be, as people, as individuals. She instilled this with love, compassion, a whimsical guidance and sometimes a firm hand or sharp word if she saw fit. My Mum is this all powerful human being that is truly the culmination of all that is beautiful in this world. She never put up barriers, never told us what we should be, who we could love, where we could go. We grew up, and I am even including my Father, in her shadow. To even emulate to becoming someone like her is an accomplishment nothing else compares to. My vessel, my Mum, the one that sees me galivant the world over, continues to be that armour factor holding it down for our entire family and although I get so little time with her, year after year, she never faulters, never changes and I am so enamoured to be a product of hers. I love you Mum, Happy Birthday!
