Mum's The Word!

There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one. -Jill Churchill

Being a mother has been one of the toughest and most rewarding jobs I’ve ever done.  It has certainly helped me to appreciate all that my own mum has done for me.

I entered motherhood at the tender age of 24, naive and clueless! I didn’t have a support network around me, lacked greatly in confidence, and read copious books to ‘learn’ how to be a good mum.

17 years later, and by the grace of God, I’m a changed person (for the better!) and have 3 happy, healthy and beautiful girls! When I look at my daughters, my heart swells with pride and joy! I love how special and unique they are in their differences.  They constantly make me laugh, surprise me and inspire me.

The great paradox of a mother’s job is to love them away, watch them grow into independence & confidence.  Mine are certainly leaving me behind in the height department!  I know I’m going to find it hard when they start to leave home!

Yes it’s been jolly hard work, and there is still hard work ahead, but I wouldn’t change the last 17 years for anything!
