Sunday is Georgia Love‘s second Mother’s Day without her mum, Belinda, who passed away at the end of 2016 from pancreatic cancer.
The Bachelorette star lost her mum just 24 hours after the final episode of the reality show aired.
But while last year the 29-year-old told Stellar magazine the day was “too much to fathom,” this year, she noticed a moving sign in a very unexpected place.
On Instagram, Love wrote that “every year without fail,” she and older sister Katie would buy their mum Peter Alexander pyjamas for Mother’s Day (side note – excellent present).
“This year, they made a pair of Winnie the Pooh PJs,” she wrote. “Not just special because that’s what Mum would read us when we were young, but they feature the quote I read at her funeral.”
Every year without fail, @klove.85 and I would buy Mum @peteralexanderofficial PJs for Mother’s Day. This year, they made a pair of Winnie the Pooh PJs – not just special because that’s what Mum would read us when we were young, but they feature the quote I read at her funeral ???? Thank you for the sign, Mum, we miss you today more than ever #mothersday #fuckcancer
That quote, by author AA Milne, is: “If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.”
“Thank you for the sign, Mum, we miss you today more than ever,” Love wrote.
Last month, the journalist spoke to Stacey June and Kristie Mercer for The Thinkergirls Pod Channel, and recalled the night her mother died, which was also the second night she had ever spent with Lee.
“Our second night as a couple was spent with him literally holding me as I screamed and shook for hours and hours and hours,” she said, her voice cracking.
