And the award for being a treasure goes to ……

No … not me!  This one is for my family: my joy, my inspiration, my strength (on earth, that is. God first and foremost, but my family are what keep me chugging along day to day.)


To my husband: my rock, my love, my best friend and companion for the last 13 years.  You keep me grounded, comfort me when I’m down, encourage me when I’m up and let me know when I’m being a pain (everybody needs someone to do this!)

My eldest: my serious-thinking, mad girl!  You are soooooooo lovely – don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise!  (And God loves you far more than I ever could.)  Your questions get me thinking in turn and your answers display a wisdom that is more than just earthly intelligence.  God bless you on the next step of your journey – big school – I know He will pave the way for you there, provide you with new friends, challenges etc.  And God is going to use you in the future for something wonderful – it’s so exciting to see how it’s all going to turn out!

My youngest: little ray of sunshine, caring girl.  You have the spark of God’s love writ large in your life and share it with all around you.  May God bless you as you work hard at school this coming year, think ‘hardly’, socialise with all your mates (Face-time!!!) … what you put into life will be returned to you ten-fold.  And God can use you in a way He can use no-one else, because no one else has exactly the same combination of gifts as you.  You are precious …..

Thank you, my gorgeous family.  You are one of God’s greatest gifts to me and I love you an awful lot! 🙂
