29 - A New Chapter..


This morning at 6:34am I watched the sunrise on my 29th year. We sat on the beach and looked out upon the horizon, storm clouds edging ever closer to the shore.  I wondered for a moment if the sun would even make an appearance. But then as if by some kind of birthday magic, the cloud's white tips began to turn a soft shade of pink and sure enough, full of warmth and love, the sun burst through the clouds for a new day.. and for me a brand new year.   

28 was a challenging year, the most difficult I have ever endured.  At times I wondered if the storm clouds would ever lift, if that sun would ever show me a glorious new day.  Slowly through, between the days of sadness, there were moments of light, trickling quietly into my world.  And as one year ended and a new one began, the most remarkable of all sunrises light up our world, a very own little miracle.  Since that day, each morning the sun has been shining that little bit brighter in my life and now this morning, I was blessed to witness the birth of a new chapter, as those electric rays of light parted the storm clouds and filled my soul with unconditional love, gratitude and joy.

Here's to 29... the year I've been waiting for.  The journey of motherhood in the making, an amazing adventure on the horizon and a whole new love filling our world.  

Much Love

  13. Bless you honey and happy birthday again. I could have written this for my 30th five years ago, in the same position as you with my journey. In a few short weeks it will be the sun rising on my 35th birthday and highly likely a day we could welcome our last addition in our family, after the woes, losses and emotional challenges of the last five years.

    I'm so grateful that there is peace and comfort in pieces and moments you've found in the last year. You deserve every bit of joy, happiness and excited anticipation you fill right now for your life and little adventurer. Last year may have changed you and challenged you like nothing else. The year ahead now is about to do the same in the most spectacular of ways, it'll forever change you all over again and you'll love every bit of it.

    The happiest of birthdays to you again Hun. Big love and hugs. X
