PHOTO MOMENT: My mother, my strength

Today’s post is dedicated to my Mum. Unfortunately last week she was taken to hospital after suffering a mild heart attack and severe pneumonia at the same time. The good news is that she is on the mend and the doctors and nurses are taking good care of her. It is an incredibly painful sight to witness one of the most important people in your life in such a state, but I have faith in God and in my mother because I know she is a fighter. At one point though, I and my family were really scared because my mum has never had any problem with her heart before, and because of pneumonia being a potentially life-threatening illness, but thankfully she is getting better, slowly but surely.

As a result I will probably not be blogging as much as I would normally do despite being on annual leave from work for two weeks. This is mainly because I’ll be making visits to hospital on a regular basis but also as the events of the past few days have had an effect on me. I will try to keep up a daily schedule though as much as possible.

To celebrate the special place that Mum occupies in my heart and the love and care she has always shown us. I thought to share a selection of images and quotes illustrating the joy and special significance of motherhood. It is one small way of saying “Thank you, Mum…for everything”. I’m hoping she will be given the all-clear by the end of this week, and I can show her this article. It’ll be heartwarming to see her smile again.
