Ten years ago, I don’t think I would have ever realised how much my mother means to me. I guess I assumed she would always be around forever, and as such, probably didn’t fully appreciate all the wonderful things she has done for me over the years.

Today, I literally treasure every single day that mum is around. I really can’t imagine life without her. She is not only my mother, but also my best friend and my role model.

People used to say to me “you only get one mother.” Back then, I used to think about the words and think “oh yeah” but not realise how deep this statement went as far as my emotions. You really only do get one mother. Never again will you have an individual in your life who worries about you; loves you; will do anything for you, and who has your best interests at heart - to the extent that your mother does. When they ask you if you’ve cleaned your shoes when you're thirty-five; think that, one day, when they longer are around to ask that, you are going to miss them saying that.

I think when mum is no longer around, a piece of me will go missing too. I avoid thinking about that possibility, though I know one day it will occur.

In the meantime though, I am going to treat my mother as the number one person in my life which she is. She is a gift that I don’t deserve, and I will treasure every second I have with her, because I know one day she won’t be around anymore to let her know how much I love her.
