About Me

So here’s a little about me …….

I am a happily married mom to four amazing girls, who are growing up to soon for my liking. Raising my children and loving my husband is one of life’s blessings.

I never imagined I would have children, being the oldest of five and playing a big part in raising my siblings, I had a life planned full of adventure and no dirty nappies. Amazing how meeting Mr Right changed that. Alan and I have been together for 15 years, married for 14. While you will occasionally find me moaning about him, this man saved me. He taught and showed me that I deserved to be loved. He took a wild lost child and turned her into a woman that I am slowly learning to be proud of.

Life hasn’t been easy for us as a family we suffered the terrible loss of Livvy our third daughter. In 2008 she lost her battle with Rett Syndrome. Our hearts are forever broken. Livvy changed who we were, she showed us how to love life and create memories. Losing her nearly destroyed us. I thank God every day for his never ending strength.

My relationship with God has been up and down, from a young girl wanting to devote my life to him, I turned away and explored other religions.  I learned a lot from this time, not all good. Thankfully our Lord never gave up on me and I was baptised in March 2010. My faith is what gives me the strength to face the day. Knowing God loves me has led me on a journey of self discovery. It has also led me to meet and befriend some amazing people. I pray I can raise my children to know and love our amazing eternal father.

I started my blog to share my ups and downs but it has become much more. It is on these pages I have finally discovered the person I wish to be.

As a family we have decided to foster children with severe special needs. This has brought us a lot of joy and also pain.

Remember to welcome strangers because some who have done this have welcomed angels without knowing it Hebrews 13

We hold the above Scripture to our hearts, as we know we have been blessed by angels in our life.

Thank you for visiting my blog, you are very welcome. I hope you enjoy what you read and visit again. Please leave me a comment so I know who you are and can return visit you.

    I too lost my daughter to complications caused by Rett Syndrome. She got her angel wings in August 2009 and was just 3 years old. I will miss her forever. Your words made me cry and brought me great comfort. God bless you and your family.

    I totally agree with that Bible verse. On many occasions when I have been out walking, a complete stranger has smiled and greeted me. Not that unusual, we live in a fairly decent, polite area. However, sometimes, these greetings have filled me with unexplainable joy and peace. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, I truly feel I have met an angel!

    God Bless.

  8. Hi Sara, I am a new blogger writing about life with my two teens ( boy & girl aged 16 & 15 ).

    Your story is a touching one. So many of us take too much for granted in life. I can not imagine the pain of losing a child, but as a mom I am well away of the bond we have with our kids. So sorry for your loss.

  10. I’m visiting to say thank you for your comment on my blog but also to read about the loss of your daughter. I cannot imagine the pain. I have three children under nine years old and I am a full-time dad to them. I cannot imagine life without them. Thank you so much for getting in touch. I’m so glad that your daughter’s chain gives you comfort.
