Happy Mother's Day...

Yesterday was the sort of day that you realise that you are blessed.  Blessed in so many ways, that I have a lovely home, both of us are employed, our bills are up to date.  Those blessings are material, and although comforting are not the real reason we are so blessed.  We are so very lucky to have been given the gift of two little girls, who, due to circumstances, cannot be cared for by their own parents.  My husband and I have always believed that they are our girls, we treat them as our girls and always will.  Along with my precious daughter, these two small girls make me a mom!

Life is not easy in our home, both girls have "issues" that need more than the normal level of everyday care, but I live in the hope that this is just a passing phase and that an easier path will be found, and life will trundle on with a new sense of normal.  No matter what, thinking positive makes it easier.

We have a great support structure around us, and without the help of my mum, I think we would not have made it this far.  My mum is my pillar of support - she tells it as it is, she pulls no punches but she is also there to help, support and soothe the way.  Without her I would be lost and she is everything to me! Love you mum!!!

What a lovely blog post to put up. The picture of your mam and your little girl is just heart warming. You do a fantastic job with all you put your mind to and its great that you have a supportive mam behind you. xxx

What a lovely post. You can take so many things for granted in life, but it's good to take stock sometimes. Your girls are lovely and clearly adored. Mums get little recognition - so Happy Mother's Day to you too x
