0155Tonight I watched a video that had me in tears within seconds. It was a home video taken at a wedding of a mother and son having their last ever dance together. The mum had breast cancer and eventually died three days later. It made me realize how lucky I am to still have my parents and how incredible they are. They have been my rock for 25 years and I often feel guilty for not expressing how grateful I am for them, for all they have done for me and telling them how proud I am of them. They say “you can choose your friends, but not your family” and I am absolutely fine with that. They are my biggest inspiration and have been there for me through thick and thin and I could not imagine anyone I would rather have in my life.

Wat lief, Floddie! Ik kan me, als moeder, niets mooiers voorstellen om te horen! Je bent zo’n prachtig en goed mens; ik had me geen mooiere, lievere en betere dochter kunnen wensen! Je bent alles wat ik had gedroomd dat mijn kind zou zijn en worden, en meer! Love you always! Je mamsie, xxx

It is my favorite time of day. The light is orange and the trees and flowers have a soft, white outline around them.
It is my favorite time of day, when the world is covered in a warm glow.
As I sit on my bed, watching out of my window, the last couple rays of sun shine on my face and I close my eyes, feeling content.
