Then and now…

Then I was 16.
Now I am 22.

Then I was scared.
Now I have the knowledge.

Then I was clueless.
Now I am wise.

Then I was unconfident.
Now I have the confidence.

Then I had the belief in myself as a mother.
Now I still hold that belief.

A lot has changed in 6 years. I’ve changed a lot. And yet it feels like yesterday. Like nothing else has occurred. Like I haven’t lived 6 years and done the things I have. It scares me how fast 6 years has gone. Another 6 and il be 28 and mum to a secondary school child. 10 and il be 32 with a 16 year old. I may have done the motherhood thing early but I don’t regret it for even a nanosecond. It’s worked for us and that’s the main thing.

  1. You are a wonderful mother and I have every faith in your ability to grow with the boys and develop your family life further.

    You will cope (and do) with anything life throws at you and come through it stronger as you proved 6 years ago darling.

    I can’t say it enough I am so proud of how you are raising the boys. I will always be there for you no matter what life throws at us.

    I am grateful that you are still here with us as 6 years ago I admit I was scared I would lose you but you proved that night what a fighter you are.
