New mum who doesn't have mum of her own Lock Rss

Hi Helen,

Thankyou so much for your kind words. You made tears well up in my eyes.

Thankyou for your prayers... I think I need them, as I get slowly closer to this labour I get more worried of a repeat of the first time.

Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou...
I will keep you posted.

Just a thought for anyone reading this thread...

Does anyone else have a special song related to their mums?

For me, it is IMAGINE, by John Lennon!

My sister, Dad and myself each chose a song for her service, and that was mine! My dad chose Tears in heaven, and my sister Hello by Neil Diamond.

Hi Tepe,

Funny you should mention this as it leaves a lump in my throat...

My mum died when I was 14 and back then I didn't even know what her favourite song was. I was asked what her favourite song was so it could be played at her funeral too... It fills me with regret and I plan to make sure that my children know what all their mummy's favourite things are (just in case, because you never know what the future holds...)

The song that probably connects me to my mum the most and allows me to have a little cry is...

Promise To Try, by Madonna

Michelle smile
For anyone who doesn't know the song, here are the words...

PROMISE TO TRY - MADONNA
Little girl don't you forget her face
laughing away your tears
when she was the one eho felt all the pain

Little girl never forget her eyes
keep them alive inside
promise to try - but its not the same

Keep your head held high - ride like the wind
never look behind, life isn't fair
that's what you said, so I try not to care

Little girl don't run away so fast
I think you forgot to kiss - kiss her goodbye

Will she see me cry when I stumble and fall
does she hear my voice in the night when I call
Wipe away all your tears, its gonna be alright

I fought to be so strong, I guess you knew
I was afraid you'd go away, too

Little girl you've got to forget the past
and learn to forgive me
I promise to try - but it feels like a lie

Don't let memory play games with your mind
she's a faded smile frozen in time
I'm still hanging on - but I'm doing it wrong

Can't kiss her goodbye - but I promise to try.

Hi Tepe,
Imagine is the song that most reminds me of my mum.
I can remember being really little, about 7 or so and talking about that song when it came on the radio, i didnt understand why having no heaven and such things would be a good idea. My mum explained the song to me and i've loved it ever since. Why was it so special to you?

Hi Michelle

I have heard it before but never stopped to actually 'feel' the words"

What a beautiful song Michelle.

I have tears rolling down my face ......

Thanks elena,

I never meant to make people cry.

I hope if nothing else to touch people's hearts and make them stop and realise how precious life is and how much of a gift being a mother is.

Not having a mother makes me appreciate how special being a mother is and how much we really mean to our children.

We should never take these things for granted.

Glad I was able to touch your heart briefly smile

Hi Elena and Michelle,

That sounds like a beautiful song, Michelle, i really don't think i know it! I can understand how it has touched your heart, especially being a parent now too!

As for Imagine, i guess it is the simplicity of life, that we could have! smile

My immediate family is not religious, but both my parents were hounded with it, and chose to leave it when they left home, and also left the choice to us!

When my mum died, her family (all very religeous), came out of the woodwork, and lied, stole and almost accused my father of her accidental death! That was enough for me to turn off religeon for ever!

I never mean to offend anyone about my choice in religeon!

Hi Michelle

You are sooooo so sweet that you worry about ME crying.

My story is my grandma, mum's mum, died on the same day our baby boy was born. On the 25/06/03 is the day my little boy took his first breath in this world and my dear granny took her last. It was a real bitter sweet day as my own mum became a grandmummy herself but also lost her own mummy.

Life works in mysterious ways. We should treasure every moment we have on this earth and to never take anything or anyone for granted because we dont know what may be waiting for us tomorrow.

When you feel a bit lonely or sad just think this. Think that everything you learnt from your mum, all the love and warmth and care she gave you when you were little you are able to pass all of these to your own daughter Maddy and in a short while to the "mini you" in yr tummy. wink

Your mum is always with you Michelle she is inside your heart.

take care:)

Hi Tepe and Elena,

Thanks again for your replies... Well this time you both made me cry. But in a good way smile

As for the relgion thing... which I don't want to turn into a huge debate here, I lost faith when I was 14 years old and my mum was taken away! It has taken a lot of years and a lot of soul searching for me to come to my own peace and beliefs. I am not religous and I won't be pushing religion onto my children. When they are old enough, they can make their own decisions.

Elena as for your child being born the same day your grandma died that is pretty special... your precious child carries on where your grandma left off. And I am sure not a day goes by she isn't watching over you and your baby boy.

Thankyou both for all the kind and wonderful things you always have to say. Elena, thankyou for reminding me that I am the person I am today because of the love and warmth my mum gave to me in those young and tender years of my life. And to Tepe... what can I say except thankyou for being you.

Michelle smile smile smile

Hi Maddychelle and Tepe

Just wanted to share the words to my favourite song with you both. It is Celine Dion's Because you loved me"

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I'll be forever thankful
You're the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You're the one who saw me through through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'cause you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I'm grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don't know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'cause you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You've been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'cause you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me
