Hi @Ellie, what a beautiful depiction of your Mum and the precious time you spent with her. The bond between you is so powerful we could feel it just from reading your words. Our hearts go out to you though for the turmoil of your childhood – having to protect your mum from DV as a little girl and living away from her at boarding school. It sounds like you did the best you could to keep her sure of your love – writing to her and visiting whenever you could. Have you tried writing her a ‘Hello again’ letter? Perhaps you’d like to try it out this mother’s day… it’s another way to keep her close to you. You might even share some of your words with your daughter to ensure she understands how important your mum and her memory is to you.
Thank you for writing @Ellie. We are here for you. 🌸
