30 days of gratitude: Day 5 , We are family!
September 5, 2016
My family are everything to me. I am lucky to have a close knit family and even luckier to live close by to most of them. I am the eldest of 3 siblings with a younger brother and sister. My mum, dad , sister and her family live close by and my brother now lives in the US with his American wife.
Having a close family has made the past year ten times easier that it could have been. The love and support they have shown me has been amazing and I can’t thank them enough. I have spoken about my sister before, but she has really been my rock since becoming a mum. She is always there to go to for advice and support for any question or query.
My mum and dad are absolute stars and would do anything for any one of us. They are amazing grandparents and absolutely love spending time with all three of their grandaughters. It’s thanks to them that we were able to attend the wedding of a friend recently and give us our first baby free day and night! Amazing!
My brother now lives in the US with his wife but we still remain close and in contact. It’s great having a brother and a sister to share memories with and I look forward to the brood of cousins growing!
The past few few years we have shared some fantastic memories as a family. 2 wedding, 3 births, a family holiday to the South of France, 60th birthdays X2 with lots of surprises along the way.
