In your lifetime, there'll be a select few people who will touch your life and who you'll never, ever forget. My mum is one of those people. I might sound biased but I know I am not the only person in this world who considers her one of the most beautiful human beings they've ever known. 

She's so warm and so honest that you know when you are with her that it's okay to just be yourself. She's the kind of person you can sit with and chat for hours about anything and everything. She'll never judge you, never share your secrets. She's the truest friend anyone could hope to have.

And as a mum - god am I blessed to be her daughter. There isn't a thing in this world I couldn't tell her. She's loyal, kind, and generous with her heart. It's a mammoth task having five kids but I take my hat off to her a thousand times over. We must have driven her up the wall at times, but she was always patient with us. 

Seeing mum and dad treat people with kindness, love us and each other unconditionally and provide a safe and happy home for us growing up (and even now!) inspires me in the way I live my own life. I said it in my Mother's day card today: I can't wait to have my mum to go to for advice when I become a mother myself. 

Mum has been by my side these past few weeks. This weekend dad joined her and they both left this afternoon, which was obviously a sad moment for us. But she says to me: "I'm only an hour away" and I know all I ever need to do is call her and she will come. 

To my beautiful, amazing mother not only this Mothers Day but every single day: I am so proud to be your daughter and I love you with all my heart. Anna xxxx
