This isn’t a beauty post per say, but I thought that I should share this with you all, so that you could all savour the “real beauty” in life… and that is family, friends and unconditional love. Please take a moment to appreciate what you have in life. As it could be all over in a second. I want you all to take the time to stop what you are doing and tell your closest family and friends just how much you love them.
I have my Mum to thank for this little burst of sappiness. I am running in the Mother’s Day Classic Fun Run this Mother’s Day and I urge you all to check it out and help out or even participate if you can. It’s a great cause and I love how it celebrates not only Women, but Mums in particular. I have my Mum to thank for a lot in my life. So Mum…. I LOVE YOU! Thanks for being you. And to all my dear family and friends, I love you too.
Here’s an email my Mum sent out yesterday that really brought a tear to my eye… I hope you don’t mind me sharing Mummy.
“To my dear friends
I am running the 8km event in the Mother’s Day Classic Fun Run… as a tribute to a wonderful friend who lost her battle with breast cancer – her bravery was amazing – her attitude was astonishing in the face of pain and suffering. If you feel inclined to support a worthy cause please follow this link
Miss Sarah Cook and I will be running together this year; it is a proud moment for me to have my eldest daughter entering this event to be with her mum. I would rather she run with me and than “for me”…
I hope you all have a wonderful mother’s day – whether you are a mum or have a beautiful mother that you cherish. Every special person in your life will enjoy the gift of being together as a family on Mother’s day.
PS attached is a story I wrote about the loss of my friend”
