I must admit that I’ve wrecked my brains thinking what I can do on mother’s day to mark it in a special way.
I thought of visiting an old people’s home or perhaps dedicate time to a cause on the day. I finally decided against all this and have chosen to spend most of my day with my adorable son, Edward. I am a busy mum but needless to say that I just got busier because of this snap election. Time with him is so limited and some wonder how I cope and whether I feel guilty.
I cope because I have an amazing support system, in fact I cannot thank my family enough. Here I take the opportunity to wish my amazing mother for all she does for me and Edward.
Needless to say, there are days when I do feel bad that I leave him behind but my inner strength and courage pushes me on for the greater good. I know that we need individuals including women to contest a general election and to serve our country and I pray that Edward will one day thank me for it and be proud of me. I am doing this for him too and for our future generation. I so much believe that we can do better, we can achieve more. I choose our children. I choose Malta.
Happy Mother’s Day.
