Hello lovely people - this post is dedicated to the most amazing woman I know...my mum! It's her birthday tomorrow so obviously my thoughts are focused on her at the moment. I know you've heard me say many times I'm a daddy's girl...well that doesn't take away from the admiration and pride I feel for my mum. She is selfless, kind, caring, wise, forgiving, generous, loving...she gives a lot to various charities (not just financially but a piece of her heart as well) although her and dad don't have much. She is totally devoted to my dad. She is a great friend and sister - always offers a shoulder to cry on. She is a brilliant support with my daughter and does an awful lot of practical stuff to help me out.
I love her so much - happy birthday mum!!!
I've spent much of my life trying to be what (I thought) everyone else wanted me to be. After a wrestle with depression and an eating disorder I now try to be as true to myself as I can be. I'm a primary school teacher, mum to Emily (12 years old), daughter to Ann & Sammy and a friend to many. These are my thoughts - read them or don't - they offer an insight into what makes me tick.
