We all ponder, from time to time, what it is we wish to do with our lives. I love my job. I love the kids I work with and I love the fact that when they see me they smile. It melts my heart. I know that there are little people out there who really look forward to seeing me each day and I actually can make a difference in their lives.
So, what next, where to from here??
Since losing my beautiful mum in June last year I sometimes feel I no longer have a constant familiar being in my life. I have no parents now. For the first time in my life I have no one to look up to for that parental boost of confidence and reassurance. Sure, I have Murray and the boys, whom I know are there for me always and whom I love dearly, but my parents have been with me for 52 years…my life.
In the past seven months my husband Murray has been there to pick me up when I fall, the boys have been there for the cuddles and a very dear and special friend has been there for me no matter what. These people don’t judge me they just care. Without them in my life I don’t believe I could have got to where I am now. I find each day gets easier and I actually think and know I can go on without the two people who bought me up and cared for me all those years, although I will never stop loving and missing them.
The next chapter for Murray and I is a journey. As I alluded to you all recently Murray and I have big news. We are going to embark on a new chapter in our lives, step out of MY comfort zone at least, and travel for six months. No returning home to check on the boys and the birds, or to see how my house is surviving without me. Lots of visiting new places, camping wherever we pull up and making plenty of new memories. We will keep everyone up to date as we go and catch up with some of you along the way while we tour this great country of ours from coast to coast. Yes , I will miss my boys and extended family and friends but we shall return and with lots to talk about.
So, come along for the ride and follow us on the next chapter in our lives as we fulfill our dreams and see parts of Australia we have only dreamt about before.
