It is hard to process the enormity of what is going on in the world right now. The Ukrainian people's suffering is often too hard to watch at the moment, let alone actually imagine exactly what they are currently going through. Their homes are being destroyed and favourite parts of their beloved towns and cities decimated. The horror is so real and upsetting it seems unfathomable this can take place in this age.
Talking about small and insignificant moments in our lives seems out of place and hard to get the right tone, compared with the reality of the current global situation. However, whilst this cannot be ignored, and we must continue to watch and help in whichever small ways we can, we must also recognise that as Covid restrictions have lifted and the Pandemic starts to slowly fade into the distance, we are finally able to see our loved ones with a level of ease and normality we have not experienced in two years.
This Mother's Day will mark the first in two years that we are freely allowed to meet up, spend the day together and give gifts in person to our Mama's. Throughout the Pandemic I was lucky enough to facetime and talk to my Mum everyday. Her worries and uncertainties were always there in the background but she continued to be calm and strong and the central rock to our entire family.
Consistency and familiarity have been my coping mechanisms throughout the last two years. Home, a mug of comforting tea and a chat with Mum has straightened my head out and refocused me when it all became a blur.
I find as I grow, and I have two children to watch and nuture myself, my maternal bond with my Mum grows too. It is a relationship you never have to question. Will she pick up? Will she be able to help me with my current problem? I feel so incredibly lucky that I have never had to ask such questions. She is there, always, and I am forever grateful for that.
My Mum makes me want to be the best Mama I can be for my little people and I count my lucky stars daily that I am so close to my own Mama and that she is able to guide me, whether we are together or apart.
Mum will be being spoilt this year for sure, and I am sure you would like to spoilt yours too. If that is the case then we have got some lovely ideas for you. From an individual mug to a set of products, we really hope we can provide some colour and quality to your Mother's Day gift ideas!
