For those of you who regularly follow my blog and facebook page may be aware that my little family has had some very tough times recently.
I took a little hiatus from blogging for a few weeks while we came to terms with the sudden and unexpected death of my brother-in-law who was a new dad and only 33 years old! It has been heartbreaking for our family and no more so than to his partner and their little boy. We celebrated his life in a way that he would have loved, at the Wests Tigers Leagues Club, the NRL team he would have followed to the moon and back. I have never been to a funeral with some many people (literally hundreds) full of funny, loving and ridiculous stories of someone's very short life but it showed everyone what an impact you can make on people in a short time.
Thank you everyone for your words of support during this time.
On the plus side the doctors and nurses LOVED her! They were playing games with her and making her giggle like crazy. She was being the most upbeat sick child ever. The doctor even wrote on her discharge paper that she was a 'very cheerful child'.
The third downer for the week was when one lovely soul sideswiped our car leaving massive scratches and dents. I returned to my car after an interview for a dream job which I was so confident about (still waiting to hear about that one) to find my car damaged and no hint of who did it. Sigh... to make it worse I was so angry and flustered I backed into a tree, leaving a second dent on the back of the car. Sigh...
But all said and done, at the end of the day I get to snuggle up with this beauty.
As a mother I get to see the (usually) smiling face of my little girl and remember that she loves me unconditionally and that I am (at the moment) her everything, as she is mine. I am so lucky that I get to call her my daughter. So life isn't that bad at all!
