With Mother’s day coming up this Sunday, I’ve been thinking a lot about my Mum. I don’t think it’s possible to be best friends with one’s parents, it seems like a violation of appropriate boundaries. However, I couldn’t be closer to her. Losing my beloved Dad would have been heartbreaking no matter what, but the bond that my Mother and I share has made the grieving process exponentially easier. Mother’s day is the chance to spoil her with indulgent gifts she’d never usually buy for herself, by way of saying thank you.
