My moment with Jay
I never met Jay Deakin. But I did interact with her once. She had posted a picture of her Louis, her son, her first born, her pride and joy. She was bursting with excitement at something he had done, and as a mother of a young child, I admired her dedication to her children.
So. I commented on her Instagram. And I said “Thank you for sharing your son with the world Jay. We don’t deserve him.”
Now, I was very new to fandom, and I didn’t really expect anything, it was just a comment. I didn’t even think she’d read it.
So imagine my surprise when she @’d me and replied: “You most certainly do!”
I have always said that if I was one millionth of one percent the mom she was, I would consider it a job well done.
Sweet sleep and dear rest Jay. ❤️
