Five things I want you to know about your Father 28

Now boys, I could tell you your father is a great man, a giving, loving, caring and respected man, but hopefully you will already know this. At the moment your Daddy is your hero, the person you most look up to and also the person you most want to be. As far as I am concerned that will tell you all you ever need to know about your Daddy, so instead I am going to tell you some other things about the man I am proud to call my husband.

He is the perfect person to have on your team at a music quiz. We wer


Irrational Fears 11

I watch him as he sleeps, The gentle rise and fall of his chest, The familiar sound as he breaths, The ever present warmth of his skin against mine.   I close my eyes and try hard to sleep, Focus on the out breath, Try to feel peace at my core, But in its place only panic.   What if something goes wrong, What will I do, How will I cope, Alone. I wrote this on Thursday morning at about 3,30 am, whilst these irrational fears ate me apart with worry as MadDad had a small operation yesterday.  Thankfully he is home and recovering, although the operation was twice as large more »


Love 29

Love for me is the man who stands beside be everyday. The man who has been there for me through some really tough times. He has given me injections, changed dressings and nursed to back to health. He is a great provider and wonderful listener. Together we have created two boys with the most amazing potential. I hope that we will grow old together. Thank you for being my partner on this journey called life. I love you.


Behind this Good Woman, is A Great Man

He stands behind with solid arms to catch me should I fall His tender words, his comforting stance The safety net in my world He watches with a knowing eye that only time can bring He is ever present, should I need him Not pushy or making demands He is the banks that my river flows through The day to my night ever present He is the galaxy that makes my stars shine brighter The oxygen in my air The love of my life He makes me smile a thousand suns He is mine Together we are one


A Family of Emotions

Mini just can not control them, they are so visual, so transparent.  It is like looking at me. I see burning red and hot orange embers.  The lava flow that just erupts before he has a chance to think about anything else.  He has no hold on them, no way to stop acting on the impulses they give him.  He has no perspective, no patience, no understanding of them. He physically reacts, throwing, hitting, shouting, screaming, banging and crying. He feels them in his heart, head and fists.   To the point of exhaustion. Maxi is comtenplative, a real thinker, he is learning to harness his emotions and to keep them more »

15 years ago my body let me down 5

I could go down the I have a genetic spelling mistake and my body is my biggest enemy, route,  but been there done that and there is something more apt, something more perfect for today.  As today is my 15th Wedding Anniversary. Picture this I was 21 years old and we had set the date, MadDad and I.  March the 18th 1995.  The dress was bought, the hair was planned.  I had the tiara and the veil.
