It takes a village


These words blew me away this morning~my girl and I were  reminiscing about when her and Ads were younger, talking about the dens we built,the pancakes we cooked at the beach,the picnics at the park all the wonderful memories she remembers that make up their childhood.

When she paused and said ‘You did all those things by yourself Mum,it was just you,all those times over the years it was just you’.

Behind some of those memories are some of the hardest times I’ve been through as a parent, during some of those days I would of painted a smile on my face and just got through until bedtime because our family life had been turned upside down.

I am so so glad for all of the memories we have created so far and I cannot wait for the many more to come.

I wanted to share this because parenting is hard no matter what your situation and on some days when you just don’t feel you’ve got it  together or that your best is not good enough~just hang in there and don’t be so hard on yourself.

I am forever grateful that although it may of just been ‘me’ it was never really just me, my amazing family and friends have been there always every step of the way and they do they say it takes a village.

So here’s a huge heartfelt thank you to my ‘village’ for ensuring that I’ve never truly been on my own.❤️x
