I realised something yesterday whilst I was sat thinking randomly about things (I do this alot). I was thinking about how important family is.
I really looked at my children and my partner and even though they can drive me crazy at times, I realised just how lucky I am. You see my kids have their faults but they are just beautiful human beings in my eyes. They are the reason i’m a Mum. They look up to me and love me unconditionally, and even though they’ve drove me nutty and i’ve screamed my head off at them, they still smile at me sweetly and tell me they love me.
My partner, well he’s just another reason that I feel lucky. We got together when I was 23 (he was 22) and he’s the most kind, considerate person I know. He’s so loving towards me and the kids, and these days not a lot of men are like that anymore. He took Faith and Wyatt on as his own from such a young age and they think the world of him and even call him Daddy.
I always tell him he’s my favourite person and to be honest he is. He took the time to get to know me and he’s always there to pick me up when i’m down. He’s completely amazing in my eyes.
I’ve also got lucky with having an extended family, even though Liam and I aren’t married (yet). I’ve gained 2 new sisters, a Dad, a few nephews and a niece. They all mean the world to me.
Life at the moment seems to be good, despite it slowly approaching the anniversary of my Dad’s death. I’ve really started to appreciate the people that are important to me.
I had a girly night with Lisa (Liam’s Sister) on Sunday. I must say it was my first girly night EVER. I’ve never had one before, even as a teenager. We watched a horror film, ate some chocolate and sweets, and of course drank some wine too. I really enjoyed myself! We even had a heart-to-heart. I love this girl to bits. She’s just so easy to talk to and always helps out if I need her.
This may come across as an emotional post today but I thought i’d share my feelings and note down exactly how special these people are to me.
So this post today is dedicated to family – you know who you are! Thank you for being yourselves and being so supportive. I really appreciate every single one of you.
Hold on to your loved one’s because what i’ve realised is life is too short. You don’t know what could happen. Let them know you love them and appreciate everything they do.
Since losing my Dad, it’s changed my outlook on life completely.
Enjoy your life because you only have one chance to live it. Go out of your comfort zone even if it’s difficult to do, and just do things that make you happy! Don’t worry what others think – It’s your life, so live it your way!
Love a sentimental Mama
