Mothers Day 2016

Happy Mothers Day
Hi everyone from team GA. Just a quick shout out to all the amazing mums out there in Australia and around the world. And a little overshare...
Here is a little message my 19 year old daughter left for me for my birthday this year -
I think the most remarkable thing about you is your uncanny ability to fix things. Through every injury, every broken heart, all the lost possessions and crappy days, I could count on you to be there with your innate ability to make everything better.
You were there when I got a detention for spitting on that boy who tried to ruin my fairy garden. You were there when I lost my 14th calculator and my 17th blazer. You were there when every afternoon I brought a new collection of bugs home, all of which died (keeping them in my pockets, as I had to learn, was not conducive to a long and healthy bug life). You were there for every new bruise and broken bone I came home with and you're still there when I come to you with a giant pile of washing desperately seeking a shower.
I don't think there are many people who have the relationship we have, so thank you for being an irreplaceable mum, and an exceptional friend. We are all so lucky to have you in our lives as a mum, a therapist, a fairy garden enthusiast and a friend.
Happiest of birthdays to you ma
And that's why we love our mums. :-) Wishing you all a wonderful Mothers Day 2016, and many stories of bugs and fairy gardens well into the future.
