My World


Letter to Olive and Noah,

Everything has completely changed the day you were born…is probably the simplest words I could use to try and portray my life today.

I watch you while I write these lines and I am trying to remember my days before YOU.

I do remember the early mornings, not as early as we have now, the commute to work, the long meetings, the adult conversations and lunch breaks, the gossips over coffee…

I remember the evenings spent in your daddy’s arms, you might not know this, but I used to call him hubby…

I remember the long hours we used to spend relaxing on the sofa watching our favourite TV shows…

I remember date nights, dinner and a movie, kisses and holding hands…

I remember food shopping in the weekend without a shopping list, eating smoked salmon canapes for breakfast and enjoying a delicious coffee and a croissant after…

I remember being bored every now and then…

I remember your daddy saying we might be missing something in our lives…

You are both asleep and I smile…

I wonder if you know how you have changed our world…how, in a blink of an eye, you have become our entire reason for living?

You might ask me if I miss anything from my life before you…

Not in the way I have imagined I would…

I have to be honest and tell you that being a parent is not easy but it is the best choice we have made. No day is the same, some are harder than others but somehow every evening we go to bed happy and fulfilled…grateful for the life we now share.

Some days I miss not feeling so tired and some days I don’t remember my life before YOU!

Do you know why?

Because every time I look at your sweet faces, especially when you are asleep 😊 I don’t know why we have waited so long to bring you into this world.

One day we will remember the sleepless nights, the five second showers, the 5am eggs and crumpets breakfast, the anxiety I feel when we need to leave the house, the adventure of changing nappies, the few minutes spent with daddy on the sofa just to make sure we still remember each other…and we might miss these moments too.

I do know that every day brings a new adventure into our world and I couldn’t ask for more, because my life has only been what I have once dreamt it could be, since you two have been born.

What I am certain of is that even if some days are harder than others, much harder and I feel overwhelmed, YOU have changed my world for the better…and I am excited to celebrate every milestone and to see the world for the first time through YOUR eyes❤️

With love,

Mummy

Writing 101 – Day Fourteen


I really loved today’s prompt…

Today’s assignment: ‘To Whom it May Concern’ – Pick up the nearest book and flip to page 29. What’s the first word that jumps off the page? Use this word as your springboard for inspiration. Write it in form of a letter.

Book: Paulo Coelho, ‘The Valkyries’, page 29…moments

Dear Moments,

You make me smile and you bring me tears…

But you are a big part of my life and I couldn’t imagine my days without you.

I wish sometimes I could hold on to you for longer just for comfort but then I remember that you are so precious because you’re ephemeral.

You’ve taught me so much along the years but I am sad to say that there are times when I don’t appreciate you as much as I should…maybe because you don’t always make me happy.

Why is that Moments?

Why can you just bring joy to my life without reminding me constantly that the light is followed by darkness…?

I know …I know…the darkness it’s always chased away by light!

If I am honest with myself I know that all that you are, brings balance to my life…the good and the bad, the happy and the sad, the light and the dark…it’s all connected.

From time to time, if I open my eyes, I can see how you are that invisible silver line between all of us…how you join our destinies together…how you create ties that we can’t explain…how you work with the Universe to guide us towards the light.

I often wonder if you already have a written plan or you just know where to be at the right time?

Maybe it’s better to keep that hidden…

I enjoy wondering about your ways and means…your plans, if there are any…but mostly I am happy that I can share you…

Thank you Moments:)

Yours truly,

Just a piece of your Puzzle

Note from the author:

I’ve really enjoyed today’s challenge…I didn’t even realise I could be so spontaneous:)))

It was a good exercise and made me think about how, small things in our life…sudden moments…connect us with each other….like the simple choice to join this writing challenge…it was a moment that brought us here:)

Enjoy the JOURNEY!

Writing 101 – Day Five


Made it to-day 5…pleasantly surprised with myself:)

Today’s assignment: ‘Be brief’ –  You stumble upon a random letter on the path. You read it. It affects you deeply, and you wish it could be returned to the person to which it’s addressed. Write a story about this encounter.

Today’s twist: Approach this post in as few words as possible.

” I wish I could have been there for you…to hold your hand and to say that everything will be all right.

I can’t imagine the pain you must be going through right now, but I only have these words to try to ease your broken heart…You might think it will never go away but you’re wrong.

Time will heal your heart and not because you will forget, but because you’ll be able to forgive… and forgiveness will set you free.

As always I’ll be next to you in your thoughts, giving you the strength to carry on…as long as you need me I am forever yours… “

… luckily there was a return address

Dear X,

I feel like I have to answer your letter as you might have never known that your words of comfort never reached the person there were destined for. I must say that whatever happened, no matter how painful it must have been, your message was a sweet attempt of consolation. I hope that time did heal a soul and this venture of mine finds you both in better place.

Thank you for somehow reminding me that forgiveness has great power over us.

Yours truly,

Y
