Writers Workshop - Affirmations

I am surrounded by love

This week over at Mama Kats Writers Workshop I found the prompts a little tricky...Really struggled with My desicion and decided to go with ...

2.) “I need all the help I can get and if repeating something healthy and inspiring to myself several times a day helps, then I’m going to do it!” -What affirmation makes you feel better? WELL THINK OF ONE.

When I was a little girl I dreamt of growing up to look like Farrah Fawcett, Getting Married to Clint Eastwood, becoming a Mummy and having four kids...Two Boys and two Girls.

Well I didn't Grow up to look like Farrah or Marry Clint but I did have My two boys and two girls.

I would buy those love heart sweeties from our corner shop, open the wrapper, close my eyes, pick one, then daydream about the boy I would Marry...Makes you wanna barf right?

Yeah I was away with the fairies most of the time!

But hey I got My proposal when I was nineteen and it may have been a bit 'shot gunny' as My Mum suggested we 'tie the knot' because I was 6 weeks pregnant and getting married would be the best option.
I was raised a Mormon so it was very important to Mum that we were married by the time the baby was here.
We Loved eachother and I'm glad she did give us that little push because now I am totally surrounded by love.
The Love of My husband, Our Children and Grandchild makes me so happy and When Im feeling sorry for myself or a Bit Grumpy I remind myself how lucky I am.
