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…..
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.

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.

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