Posts tagged “Grief of Loosing a Parent”

Yesterday I popped into the supermarket to get a few essentials and there it was – the massive display of flowers, pot plants & baskets and so on reminding shoppers “Not to forget Mum on Mother’s day.” I was hardly going to forget! Today is the first Mothering Sunday since Mum died last Spring so I’ve probably never been more aware that this weekend is the traditional time to say “thank you”. 
 
My Mum was a very pragmatic woman who didn’t expect to be taken out to lunch on this day “it will be too busy, expensive and service will probably be slow – better to go on a different day” she did have some expectations though – a bunch of daffs and a card and she was happy. 
I have a bear called Boss. Not a real bear of course, he’s a teddy bear, somewhat unusual in colour as he is black & orange. He came into my life about 7 years ago after my husband Kevin died and I wanted something to help me think of him when I went to sleep and cuddling a photo just didn’t do it for me. A family friend offered to make me a bear from one of Kevin’s favourite shirts and Boss was born.
