So, this is the month where it all happens – it’s Valentines Day, Jasper’s 4th Birthday and my 30th Birthday! I cannot quite believe I am the mother to a 4 year old; saying that, my Step Son was 12 on the 31st January. Where on earth has the time gone?
So, I wanted to think about Birthday’s and all those that we have loved and lost, and I wrote a little something for you all…
A year to remember, a year to forget,
A lifetime of love to amend and accept,
Friends and loved ones, tears of joy,
Concepts of disaster and a never ending ploy,
A household full of grief, yet a smile to brighten the day,
A way through the darkness, a moment in the grey
A life taken too quickly, yet another of first steps,
New voices and first moments to be kept,
A family of love, laughter and life,
A mother, a friend, a sister, a wife
A friend from afar, a kiss on the breeze
A never ending story with a lock but no keys.
Happy February everyone, I hope you have one full of love, laughter and happiness. Count your blessings, hug those you love a little tighter and remember time never stops, so neither should you.
