🙏 🌸 T H A N K Y O U N O T E 🌸 🙏 This is me, with my 🌎, spending an idyllic afternoon at Cliveden House enjoying the last burst of summer and making full use of our recently acquired National Trust Membership! I really love this photo because it frames the good place I'm in at the moment and I want to give God all the glory for it. Up until a few weeks ago we were in a rather dark place of family strife, even greater financial strife and, fair to say, marital strife. I prayed for things to change and He listened. He bestowed on me the most wonderful opportunity of a job in the best possible environment where my spiritual journey could be protected and nurtured amongst the nicest team of people and I have to say I can already feel a restoration of inner peace. Becoming a working mum (and I know its early days!) has already been so healing for my own mental health in giving me a sense of purpose and control back and looking back I wonder how things might have been different had I gone back sooner. However, I can't look back with regret as honestly it could never have been any other way, never having had the kind of earning power to be able to cradle child care costs and to be honest I'm also glad these earning constraints meant I didn't have to relinquish the care of my babes to others and that they had mummy (albeit the best and worst of her) for 9 years. But now I feel ready to emerge from the shadows and I'm so excited for the next phase. Thank you God for showing me with hindsight how you always, always have a plan and no matter how tough times get, you will never, ever forsake us.
