Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 117 – Mums…


“A mother understands what a child does not say.” Proverb

Seeing as it’s Mother’s Day in many other parts of the world, including the US of A where Spidey hails from, we thought why not celebrate it again!

I think there aren’t enough days in the year to truly celebrate what a mother is to us all.

The proverb above couldn’t ring more true for me anyway.

No matter where I am, what I am doing or how old I am, my mum always knows.

Whether I am feeling high as a kite, but haven’t said anything, or so low that I feel the ground will just rise above me, she knows.

It’s that mother’s intuition.

And she wont go rushing in hammer and tongs, asking me “What’s up? Why? Who? What? When?”

She just has that knack of saying the right thing to either allow me to open up, or to soothe my feelings.

She knows there are things I can’t tell her sometimes, or that I won’t, yet she still won’t push for information.

No interrogation.

Just that silent support.

She’s there for me. She always is.

And just as she can read my silence, I can feel her silent support.

Thank you Mum! ❤

Happy Mother’s Day!

Enjoy your Sunday Peeps! If you’re a mum, I hope you get appreciated for all you do! If your mum is still with you , make sure you show her how much she is loved. If your mum is being your silent support from above, look up, and thank her for still caring, even though she isn’t here.

For mums everywhere 🙂

    My Mom with the laughing eyes:

    Born so many years ago,
    And a sickly child (apparently),
    She was called the runt of the litter.
    Her father worked in farming you see.

    She did not do too well in school.
    Started working for a large retail store,
    And there she met my Dad,
    And then there were rumors of war.

    They decided to get married
    And enjoy life come what may,
    But then they both received their call-up papers,
    Right on their wedding day!

    Dad went into the Royal Navy,
    While Mom chose to work at home
    On Birmingham Corporation buses.
    She was a “clippie”… so she was never alone!

    The buses ran constantly,
    Throughout those troubled times.
    Often racing for a shelter
    As the air-raid sirens whined

    Mom was always ready with a laugh.
    She always had tales to tell.
    She carried that trait throughout her life.
    I remember her giggles so well.

    After the war, they went to work
    For a theater company of note.
    Dad designed and painted scenery,
    While Mom took care of the clothes.

    They traveled around the country
    Working wherever they had to be,
    But now they had two children,
    First Valerie… and then me.

    Rather than always renting rooms,
    They bought a caravan.
    It was our home for many, many years.
    We loved it; We had so much fun.

    Mom was the peacemaker in our family.
    Dad had a really bad temper.
    She seemed always able to calm him down
    And care for us… I so remember.

    Mom was also a good cook.
    Creative as well… we could tell.
    Even with post-war rationing,
    We always ate quite well.

    And so the years went by,
    And us kids (now three) went our separate ways.
    Mom and Dad got older,
    And faster went our days.

    I was now in Canada,
    And suddenly Dad passed away.
    Mom was on her own!
    Where was she going to stay?

    She got herself an apartment
    With immediate help on call.
    Her humor remained throughout this time,
    And she giggled her way through it all.

    From being the runt of the litter,
    She outlived her sisters by far.
    She was very proud of her life.
    To me… well my Mom was a star.

    She always had time for people,
    And shared whatever she had.
    She would always help wherever she could.
    She was my Mom, and I was so glad.

    Eventually her mind started failing,
    And she needed continual care.
    She moved into a nursing facility.
    I was sorry that I could not be there.

    To support her as she supported us.
    To care for her would have been nice,
    But emigrating across the Atlantic
    Came with a very high price.

    Soon she too passed away.
    To be once again with Dad,
    And probably still trying to keep him calm.
    Giggling her way through the good and the bad!

    I know that I never told you Mom,
    Just how important you were to me.
    Your self-sacrifice; your giggles;
    Your contagious energy for everyone to see.

    How you loved your wine;
    A glass just once in a while;
    Just thinking about the bottle
    Made your eyes twinkle and smile

    You were a real person.
    No pretense. Just you… and motherly wise.
    I shall always remember you.
    My Mom with the laughing eyes

    When reflecting on your life;
    When all is said and done;
    You were a very special person.
    I am so proud that you were my Mom

    Good morning, sis. Thank you for this lovely post. It is true what Spidey says. A mom feels so much more but not always she may speak it out. As you said… acting silently in the background. I know, it is not Mother’s Day in the UK. Therefore even more thank you foe this post and Happy Mother’s Day to you💖💖
