It's that time of year during which we celebrate our Mothers and/or our Mother figures and all of the wisdom and love they give to us. I do understand that for some of you, this day might be tinged with sadness and I truly sympathise and understand if you wish to stop reading. For those of you, in this community who wish to continue reading, this is a post about celebrating that special woman in your life who has been and hopefully still is a wonderful Mother or Mother figure to you.
My Mother gave me one of the most unique gifts of all. The gift of self confidence. From a young age she thought me to believe that I could be and do anything I wanted and set my mind to (unless it was dangerous, apparently I had and possibly still have zero skills for anything remotely dangerous). She also thought me the value of hard work, of drive and determination and of always striving for more. I'll also thank her for my energy, ability to talk non-stop for hours and my love for jewellery.
Thank you Mummy for creating me, for loving me and for bringing me up to become the woman I am today.
For this special CELEBRATION, during a life period in which our interactions are limited, when even possible, to family and close friends or colleagues, I decided to base the story of Mother's day around my family and the various mothers that form part of it. I asked them all to tell me what motherhood means to them

Miriam Grima but mummy to me - The day I became a mummy was the happiest, proudest and definitely the best day of my life followed by the day I became a nanna. My children and grandchildren are my world.

Mary Rose, Krista & Vale
Mary Rose and Krista Paris, two wonderful women. Mary Rose is my mother-in-law and of course Krista my sister-in-law and Vale my cute darling niece.
Mary Rose - As a mother I always tried to give my children the tools to lead a happy, independent and meaningful life. To help them be the best version of themselves
Krista - Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to be a mother. My family is everything to me and I absolutely love being a mum. It does not come without challenges of course, but all in all, they are my motivation for everything I do.

Roberta, Ella & Millie
Rob is a great great friend and mummy. Ella was my first niece and she stole my heart in so many ways. Millie is doing a pretty good job of stealing it too !
Rob - The best part of being a mum is the unconditional love and bond between me and my girls and just knowing that I'm important to them
