Moments….

I guess sometimes you just have moments….

Sunday would have been mams birthday. The 10th of November though I often question my memory and doubt myself thinking it’s the 11th. She would have been 54 years old. Sunday came and went without much reminiscing and actually I was quite proud of myself for being so “together”. But today my mind wandered.

I guess sometimes you just have moments…..

Me, our mam Chris and my sister Katie.

Almost 21 years now and it’s funny to think she would never have heard of an iPhone or even a Nokia 3310. If she were here now she’d wonder what a GHD was, and what she should do with fake tan and shellac nails. In 1993 – the year she passed away – Niamh Kavanagh won the Eurovision Song Contest in Millstreet in Cork, One Direction star Niall Horan was born and Albert Reynolds was elected Taoiseach.  It seems a life time ago, but today it seems like yesterday.

I guess sometimes you just have moments.

 

Mam… Chris Moore.

My sister Katie is the image today of what I imagine mam would be. She definitely inherited her sporting gene and the personality I often hear so much about. I don’t normally talk so openly about my mam. I’m one of those people who likes to bottle things up and smile. But the older I get (yes I admit I am getting older), the more I want to share her.

I guess sometimes you just have moments…

Mam – Chris Moore

Moments – she had many. And all in just 33 years. Love and miss you mam. Happy Birthday x
