Whilst sat looking through my photos I had a sudden overwhelming feeling. This blog was always intended to be something for me (and Darcie) to look back on in years to come, almost like an online journal, a place where I can share my feelings, thoughts and experiences. Whilst its great that I'm getting a lot of interest in this blog in reality it's a place for me.
The last few days have made me realise how wonderful life really is.
Last night Jamie was at work and I was feeling quite poorly, my mum came round and cheered me up, she and my Dad have helped me so much over the years, and are truly wonderful parents. Something I aspire to be like. I'm so thankful for all my family, especially since having Darcie.
Anyway... once I had gone to bed I herd Jamie come home it was about 1ish and he had gone into a 24 hour Tesco store to try and find Snow White on DVD for my friends little girls first birthday (unfortunately he couldn't find it... What is it with all the classic Disney films... You can never find them!!!) whilst there he picked up some stuff for Darcie. I hadn't asked him to get them, he got them all on his own accord. He bought her a snow suit for the winter months and a little outfit for Halloween and then a bib saying my first Christmas ready for the Christmas festivities. He also got me some much need flu medicine!!! He is soo thoughtful, he helps out so much with Darcie (more than most dads would I would say) AND work full time having a horrible shift pattern. I praise anyone who is a single parent I know I would struggle without Jamie.
I'm thankful for my beautiful home, it's small but perfectly formed (even if I can't open my built in wardrobe doors properly) and it's ours. Not rented. Ours. Not many people of my age can say that.
I'm thankful I have such wonderful friends. Since having Darcie it has drawn me close to my friends, especially Chloe who has two children (and another on the way!!) of her own. She is my oldest bestest friend in the whole wide world (I have no idea if she reads these) and she really has helped me loads!! She is so kind and thoughtful and always makes me smile!!! Also having Darcie has given me the opportunity to make some new friends, which has been really lovely.
And finally I'm so thankful for Darcie, she has been the one to make me appreciate so much, made me grow into the person I am today.
I hope in years to come I can look back at this post and the same still applies and that I'm thankful for all the same things and more.
