We all say “time flies” and are amazed and/or alarmed when another week, month or year has passed. But take a longer period of time, look back – and then go and try and remember how it felt to look forward… Wow. That’s quite something!!
On this photo, I was 19 and that little baby was just over a day old. The odds were rather against us in many ways, but fate, luck, an optimistic outlook, family, friends and probably a few guardian angels in various guises, amongst other things, prevailed and today, it’s 30 years later and I feel a bit like I haven’t quite stopped spinning and whoosh, here we are!
Cheerful, inquisitive, easy and game for anything have always been qualities my little daughter seems to have had from the start. She has won hearts with her helpful, sunny nature all her life, played, worked and laughed hard, and made the effort to grow and grow… It has been more than worthwhile to invest in her musical and dance talents and encourage her language and intellectual skills. It has been enormous fun being a mother (most of the time! ;o) – and having the gift of my daughter’s friendship is invaluable, as well as a son-in-law and grandchildren LOL!! We are incredibly grateful that this is the way it is!
