I hope all the mothers out there had a beautiful and relaxing Mother's Day. Jason and I had breakfast with my mum and dad after church, then we had afternoon tea with Jason's mum. I don't have my camera at the moment so wasn't able to take any pictures which was a shame.
I wanted to dedicate this post to my wonderful mum. She has been so amazing over the years and I truly don't know what I would do without her. She taught me so many things, one on being unique and that it's alright to be different (I went through a whole stage where I wanted to change my name to make it more normal and wanting my hair to be straight and black, instead of dark brown and curly/wavy - mum always said I would appreciate my hair when I got older. Especially the colour. And now I love that my hair is naturally dark brown with tinges of auburn).
She was a great example in many ways and one of them is her unfailing love and faith for our Lord. I look up to her and see how she does life and I want to have her faith, I want to be able to pray like her. And when people say I look like a 'little Marilla' it makes me glad. I hope I can follow her example and one day be the mum that she was to me.
Here are a few random photos I picked. I realised that most of the old photos are at my parents house so I can't share some of the other mother/daughter moments.
Just after I was born. This was our old house in Sydney.
I was maybe two or three here. Still at our old house in Sydney.
A few years ago (like 6). This was at Carindale shopping Centre.
My 21st party. It was a Mexican Fiesta theme.
At a wedding in Sydney. I guess it was a trip with the parentals too.
Still on our Sydney trip, playing tourist. Though we used to live here so I don't know why we play tourist.
A Mother's Day breakfast from a few years ago.
Graduating from University.
A Christmas from a few years ago.
Going to a function at church for the SHE rescue home.
And the Wedding day :)
Seriously, I have the best age genes. I will never look my age because my parents don't look like theirs (of course they would never let me reveal that here haha)
So, I want to say thank you to my mum for being the best example that she could be, for her unwavering faith in the Lord and for loving me. To all the mums out there and mum's to be, you are so precious and amazing.
