So very lucky to be a Mum !!!

I have been trying to write this post all week and every time I start it, it is just too hard.... This story really starts when I was a little girl watching my mum and how she had such an open heart for children and how being a mum was the most important thing to her and she always used to say....I just want you to be happy....  At the time I thought, that is lovely mum, but I really didn't know the true meaning of what she was trying to tell me...  and my mum left us 12 years ago this year so my beautiful ones were only tiny but over the last few years with my hazel eyed girl getting married and now my hazel eyed boy heading off to uni those words of my beautiful blue eyed mum ring in my head...We just want them more then anything else to have JOY in there life...and to be able to be themselves in a sometimes confusing, dramatic but beautiful world we live in.
My hazel eyed boy headed off to uni last Sunday and it was beyond hard {for all of us}... He is my strength, the smile {that would break a thousand hearts} that greeted me every morning, the best hug in the world and the little independent boy {young man} that always wanted to make a difference. Stubborn, smart and beyond sweet... I miss him so much and there have been probably way too many tears this week and to be totally honest as I am typing this they are still rolling down my cheeks.... 

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
