At the beginning of this year my husband gave me a gift, i year off to do whatever i pleased to work out what i wanted to do with my life. It was a precious gift and only now do i realise it's value.
I've learnt a lot.
But it's been a hard learning curve:
We lost a baby, and then had disappointment every month when it seemed we couldn't make another, my mum got sick, and most of all I felt lost, suddenly i didn't have a job to go to everyday.
So what did i learn?
How much i wanted a child, and the hard fact that for some people it takes a bit longer.
How much i love my family, and how sometimes them just knowing that makes everything just a little bit better.
I also realised how it was up to me to make my own opportunites and work program.... something i am still working on.
I am now in a much better place than i was 11 months ago, little did i realise then how much of a gift i was given.
