It may seem hard to believe now however four years ago I was quite a private person preferring to live each day in a safe and secure little circle, In my own little world amongst those nearest and dearest, I always wished to be more adventures, more
confident, more outspoken but I found myself to be a creature of habit enjoying my comforts and my security blankets. there's a mountain of things that changed me, reverted me to hide in my shell, and I knew one day I would again find my feet although
things never seem to happen quite how we foresee.
I remember the first time we were approached with an offer to fundraise as touching and beautiful as this was it was incredibly hard to accept, to accept the help from
another, accept that we indeed needed help and accept that we were deserving recipients, after all there are so many ill children, so many suffering.
And how could we expect help from Others, isn't this our responsibility, Quite
quickly I learnt to swallow my pride, I learnt to realise this is far bigger than my own personal beliefs and fears. It was at this moment I received the most crucial advice from the most softly spoken precious women I know, asking me to find the strength
within, to understand what I do from here is for the good of my child not about my insecurities, I need to push myself with all that I have to advocate, be a voice for my little girl lost, I need to understand this fight is merely the beginning, I must
grow to accept that the best chance possible may not come without allowing every possible chance.
I Must fight for my little girl her struggles and her strength, I must believe her to be capable of great things through great love.
Our job is to guide our baby's through this life, to love and protect, to cherish every beautiful moment.
I could never have imagined my little princess would force me so quickly from my shell.
I now realise
what it is to feel the pain of another, to wish to take their place, to ease all discomfort.
I realise the innocents of life, what's important and what should not be given the luxury of our time.
I realise the importance
of hope and belief, how these words can change a day, week or month.
I have learnt that accepting kindness from a dear friend or a beautiful stranger can promote joy and hope, encourage kindness and love, make a remarkable difference
and create a deep respect, eternal gratitude and everlasting friendship.
You've taught me so much my baby girl and allowed me to experience many precious moments, you've allowed me to meet some of
the most heartfelt beautiful people, given me a deep appreciation for the community in which we live, it's generous spirit and it's overwhelming need to nurture and protect the precious lives of others.
You continue to open my eyes
to the good, to the beautiful.
I am blessed to have my angel as my teacher 💜
