This Mothers Day I will be thinking of….


This Mothers Day I will be thinking of my beautiful daughter who I only got to hold for 4 and a half months

I will be thinking of my two Nannas no longer with me.

This Mothers Day I will be thinking of my family and friends who desperately wanted to be a mother but couldn’t

 I will be thinking of every mother I have organised a Heartfelt session for this past year who  do not have their babies to hold

This Mothers Day I will be thinking of all those who are having their first Mothers Day without their mum

I will be thinking of Rachel from Mummas Muddles having to live through her first Mothers Day without her beautiful Hamish

I will be thinking of how thankful I am to have my own amazing mum so present in everything I do

This Mothers Day I am thinking about how much my mum must be missing her mum……as I desperately do everyday

This Mothers Day I am thinking of how very blessed I am to be the mother to the 5 most amazing boys in all the world.

Who will you be thinking of this Mothers Day?

    This mother’s day I will be thinking of all the motherless mothers. It’s a bitter sweet day of celebration xx

    1. Martine

      It can be very bittersweet Kim. I hope you have a great day with your family xx

    This mother’s day I will be thinking of all the callers who ring the PANDA (Post and Ante Natal Depression) helpline and who are struggling with post and ante natal depression and other mental illness. It can make mothering a very hard road. Let’s aim to show compassion towards all mums.

      So very true Heather. You guys all do an amazing job and have been such a support for so any women. xx

  4. Steve

    I’ll be thinking of my own mum who is slowly slipping away from this world.

    1. Martine

      Oh so sorry to hear Steve. Hope you find some joy on the day.

    Happy Mothers Day to the funkiest Mum I know xxx

    1. Martine

      Oh thanks lovely…and to you too! xx

    Martine, this Mother’s Day I will selfishly be thinking about myself. I will be thinking about the joy & upheaval that comes with being a mother. So much has been going on around me and I have often been the support person, so I’m taking the opportunity to spend the day with my man and cherubs focusing on us. It’s important to do that I think!

    1. Martine

      Oh and as it should be Raechel. Enjoy your day with your beautiful family. x

  7. Rachel

    Thank you Martine. Mother’s Day without my Hamish will be very difficult. I guess I’m lucky to have 3 beautiful children here to remind me that I am needed here. It’s also a reminder that my children are gifts and Hamish will always make me a better person, in death as he did in life. xx

    1. Martine

      So true Rachel. Enjoy your beautiful family xx

  8. A beautiful post Martine. I will wake up Sunday morning and be grateful for my three beautiful girls and husband, and my mum as well as their other grandmas, and I will count my many blessings. It’s the least I can do. xx

  9. Hello Martine, I so enjoyed this post and needed to read it as I am tired and was feeling very ‘meh’ about Mother’s day… all that commercialisation at the shops. You brought me back to the right head space.

    I will be thinking of my Mum, who I have just left behind in Scotland and am feeling torn in half about that. It just feels wrong. And also of the mums who are struggling, as I was for so many years. This transition to motherhood is very tough for so many of us. It was for me and really the relief is quite recent, the settling into it. Oh dear… but finally getting the hang of it, and that’s also worth celebrating.

    1. Martine

      Oh it absolutely is Seana….I hope you had a gorgeous day. xx

    Martine – a lovely post full of love. I will think of you and the loss you bear and all mothers who have lost, including my children’s birth mothers. I’ll reserve s a special spot of grief for my own lost baby in pregnancy and the IVF embroyos who never got to be born, but I can’t imagine the depth of your loss of your daughter and all the Heartfelt families who have so say goodbye to their little ones. I’ll be thinking I’m so very lucky.

    1. Martine

      Thankyou Kathy, and of course thinking of you too, hope you enjoyed your day x
