That old adage that time heels all, is nonsense. The pain just finds fresh
ways to sneak in and catch you unawares. I hope today is gentle on you.
You’ve shown through the way you live and the values you keep that you
honour your mother’s memory and act as inspiration to others. Especially
To quote the guilty feminist podcast, “I’m a feminist but…” I could do
better. People like you help others do that, and that’s the beat tribute to
our hardworking, working class mums we can be.
Love to all Netbehaviourists doing their best to be the best example to
