It makes me smile to say that surprisingly enough, after just twenty-two magical years on this earth, I am continuously amazed by the countless wonderful people I have been blessed to have in my life.

People who have never in any way been obliged to look out for me and yet still, out of the goodness of their own hearts, they have done exactly that. People who although they may have appeared to have been somewhat hidden in the background at times, have really never wandered very far at all. People who although I may not have quite realised it at first, have remained right there beside me on this crazy rollercoaster of a ride, the whole entire time. People who have always, always had my very best interests at heart and never once at any stage has that even slightly changed.

People who have not only shared in my triumphs, but who have also shared in my struggles. People who have not only shared my endless smiles, but who have also shared my countless tears. People who have been so overwhelmingly beautiful that they have left me counting my blessings from the very first moment that they walked into my life. People who every single day, make my life just that little bit brighter simply by being themselves.


The best part though, despite only just recently realising the full extent, is that even if I were to use all ten of my tiny little fingers and all ten of my tiny little toes; it still wouldn’t be enough to count all of those beautiful people who I have been so incredibly blessed to have in my life.
