A Letter To My Daughter.

Dear Daughter,

Tonight I was sad as we chatted in bed,

You shared with me your fears for the future ahead.

You’re excited, you said, and your heart’s full of love,

But will I still embrace you, will you still be enough?

It has always been me and you from day one,

A bond unbroken; a song to be sung.

Our days play out one note at a time,

And so far the track plays to a beautiful chime.

Don’t worry, my darling, love for you won’t be shared,

Just more in the making, love spread and aired.

Our days in the sun will still be full of laughter,

As together we begin our brand new chapter.

Don’t worry, my darling, I’ll still wipe your tears,

Kiss you goodnight and diminish your fears.

Our family is growing with a new dimension,

But you will still have my unconditional affection.

Don’t worry, my darling, it will be a blessing all around,

When your sister arrives she’ll make you so proud.

Right here in this arm, I will hold her tight, true,

But here in this other, there will always be you.

Mummy x

So, for those that don’t know, my name is Steph & I live in the beautiful village of Ripponden. I recently married the lovely Danny and I have an eight-year-old daughter, Poppy and an eight-week-old, Lydia. Both amazing. Ten years ago, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and have spent pretty much all of that time in denial about this disease. The time has come, I think, to share my story and hopefully send out a positive message to those who are suffering, those who are just winging it at life and those who are none of the above; but just want to come along for the ride.
