The post you should all read this week doesn’t belong to me, it doesn’t belong to anyone I have met or spoken to, it belongs to a lady who has just said goodbye to her husband. A truly eloquent, beautifully worded piece that made me count my blessings for all that I have in this world.

After reading I took a moment to take a good look at everything I have and how incredibly well my life is shaping up.
I have three rather gorgeous children who at times can be incredibly challenging but can turn my temper off with a well placed kiss. They are funny, smart, and confident to the extreme and at times I am not always the best mummy but I always pledge to try harder and that’s the best I can do.
I managed to marry a chap I rather quite like and although we bicker like toddlers I can’t imagine any future without him in it telling me off for not being able to wash up properly. He is quite a looker as well!
I also have a marvellous mother, I don’t blog about her often as she has fear of the internet and doesn’t like to think of herself on that facebook thingy. However as it is only nice things I am writing and she will probably never read it I reckon I am safe. My mother is everything I want to be, she is generous without exception. She can’t go a day without offering to help someone in need or just make peoples lives easier. She preys upon buy two get one free offers just so she can give one away to someone else. Most importantly she adores all her grandchildren and spends as much time playing, cooking and holidaying with them. Without her I would be lost.
Thank you karen for sharing your husbands last moments and thank you for reminding me to appreciate what I have.
