My mother died three years ago, after a brief but fierce fight with cancer.
I miss her every day.
Time has brought healing. However, sometimes I just wish that I could still sit down with her and talk things through over a cup of tea.
She was one of my strongest supporters and closest confidants. We would talk about the serious and not so serious, about plans and ideas and funny things that happen. She gave advice where it was needed and encouraged me to forge my own path. Whether I needed support or to celebrate the wins, she was always there for me despite the distance.
One wise woman
Just over a year ago, I received an unexpected email from one of my Mum’s longest and wisest friends. While it was a lovely surprise to hear from her, her email made me cry all the same. Like me, she misses my Mum, but she still has a regular cup of tea with her to talk things through. I don’t know why I didn’t think of trying it myself!
This blog is my way of steeping the soul
As I blog here at Tea with Mum, I’m taking the advice of that one wise woman. I’m discussing the myriad of things that happen in life that I would like to share with my Mum, and our readers, one cup at a time.
What began simply as an outlet for my grief has moved to become a way to help other busy mums, so that they can focus less on the small issues and more on their own grief of whatever else it may be that they are dealing with.
