I was 1 of 4 children. The second eldest one pass away from cystic fybrois (he was only 8years old) I was only 10 months old.I don’t really recall my brother as I was so young but I always remember him from the photograph that sat on my parents mantle piece for many of years. I was the baby of the family and there for I should of learnt from my brothers and sisters, but I was the rebel of the family the one who always came home late left school & didn’t obey by the rules left home at 14 smoked drank did everything I should of done. It wasn’t until I had my first child that I realised how silly I had been. I went on to have another child and that is when it hit me …..OMG I am a mother of 2 children. My mother always told me you gave birth to the children you look after them (it may sound harsh but it worked). I married the father of the children which ended in a divorce nearly 20 years later. He didn’t come home very much and would stay away from days on end, so I really brought the children up alone. If it wasn’t for the help of my mother I wouldn’t be the person I am today. My marriage was wrong from the start but I didn’t see that and tried to stay for the children (bad judgement).Today I have 2 beautiful girls one of them married last year.If it wasn’t for my mother for her support and helping me though the tough times I would be here today. I just want to say THANKS mum. Our relationship has never been as strong as it is today and I miss her. Who would of thought a little baby who was in so much trouble could turn out to be who I am today. Today I am as happy as I have ever been with a man who loves me and treats me with respect. So Thanks mum for putting up with me being a painful child. Love You Always cant wait til see you in a few weeks.
