My campaign will continue in my mum’s honour


Yesterday was probably the worst day since my mum passed away. I have emptiness inside and just miss her so much, even as I tell myself mum is at peace from the dreadful struggle she faced over the last years, months and weeks it does not affect the tears I cried and the emptiness in my heart and in this house .I have woken up this morning determined to fulfill the talks I have lined up ,the papers I am working on, and my motions at councils I have had passed .To finish the work we started together and I am determined to keep going long after the commitments I have already in my diary .After 5 years caring for my mum I am now a jobseeker but will refuse work till my commitments are fulfilled
I am used to scraping by after 5 years of caring, I am just not used to not  having my wee mum by my side that’s the difficult bit I might never get over
