I can barely believe I am writing this blog on the eve of her first birthday..and it brings me to tears to consider that a whole year has passed by already! Her serene and perfect arrival into this world marked the start of a huge healing process not just for me personally but our whole family. Previous life struggles and losses seemed to ease when she was given to us….and I believe she was ‘given’ to us.
She has helped plug a gaping and painful hole in our lives.
A year ago after one of the hottest weeks of the year so far and right smack bang in the middle of the Wimbledon Tournament she decided to make her entrance (read here), I can’t recall the match that was on in the background that day but Wimbledon now has a significance to us it never did before and so we thought it was only fitting to use this as a theme to celebrate her first birthday!
We are so very grateful for her.
She is adored.
