Tonight I am posting a message to my Mum and Dad.
I love you. I love you for the life you gave me, for the love you give me and for the chance that I have now to give you a little in return.
Thank you for teaching me to be the woman that I am.
Thank you for showing me what to value in life - family, family, family.
Thank you for listening to my life story and taking the time to value it.
Thank you both for just being you.
Tonight, I went to see my Dad in hospital - his second stroke has caused little or no serious damage that we can see, but it is a lesson to me, that everyday I need to let him, and my Mum, know that I love them. Dad is 75 in August and for the first time, I can see the years behind him. I know that God has heard the prayers from us all, and from all of you, and realised that we need him here for just a little longer. So thank you for them all. And thank you God.
To you Mum, please know that I love you. Ask me for help - I am here for you, every step and every day. Mum you are amazing, so strong and so independent, but remember your family can and will willingly help you, just as you have helped us.
I love you both, Mum and Dad. I hope that you know this.
