George’s 5th Birthday

Days like today are the most bittersweet.

George is 5 today!

It is also his 4th Birthday without his Daddy, so there is such an obvious void in our life on these special days.

Nevertheless we had a wonderful day. We went for breakfast and spent hours playing with the train set he desperately wanted, which just so happened to be around 10 years old and could only be found on a second hand website. He was thrilled, which made the 60 mile round trip to collect it worth it!

In spite of life’s difficulties, George is such a remarkable boy. He has the compassion of a thousand people, a sense of humour to light up the darkest of days and the kindest soul I have ever had the pleasure of encountering.

I am proud to call myself his Mama.

Happy 5th Birthday, my sweet boy!
