Time For Some Thanks

Sleep for the Weak has posted the weekly workshop and I have chosen to do this prompt:

1. Write something to say thank you to some who has made a difference to your life, whether from your past or present.
– Inspired by the Moiderer’s ‘People I’d like to thank

When I first saw this I could have written a thousand thank you’s, but then I narrowed them down to just a few.

Firstly it would have to be my parents, both of them but mainly my mum, the wonderful Mrs Beetroot as she is affectionately known by some, (you know who you are!) Throughout the years my mum has always been there, and whatever I have done, either good or bad she has been there. Either to praise or to pick up the pieces and there have been times when I have known that she has been unimpressed but she has still given me whatever I have needed, and I love her for that. I hope that I am that helpful to my children. But the biggest thing is that even now, when she has retired and should be living her life for herself and being selfish, she is still helping on a weekly basis by having Baba when I work. Which I am totally appreciative for!

My sister, who I will keep 100% anonymous as she would hate it. I don’t think I go a day without speaking to my mum or my sister. Even though there are 14 years between my sister and I she is one of my best friends. I do not know what I would do without her around. She is there to ask for advice with my baby, with business, with money, with friends, and parents. Whatever advice I need she is there. She has been my second mother in my life, and I would not be the person that I am now without her influence.

My best friend, we have been friends since we started primary school at 4 years old, and we could not be more different in some ways, but at the same time I would not trust anyone as much as I trust her. We have had many rows in the past, and have wanted to throttle each other, but we have always sorted it out. We have done many a thing together, getting drunk, going on holiday, up into the dead of the night doing homework, even lived together, and they are all things that we will remember till we are very old. She was one of the first to see my little boy, at hospital and was there when I wrote of my car. I will never forget having my name shouted out in the accident and emergency room as she had called the hospital to speak to me! She is still the first person I call when I am having a crisis or have some big news 24years on. Thank you for always being there, and thank you for being Baba’s godparent, I know he is in safe hands with you!

Then there is Mr L. Mr L goes through so much and just takes it and I don’t know how to thank him, as there are a million and one things to thank him for. So here goes I thought it would be easier to write a list:

  • Doing things that he hates so that I can do things that I love
  • Putting up with me when I am at my worst, you know what I mean
  • Always supporting my mad ideas and just saying “if it makes you happy, do it” Even if he totally does not agree with them.
  • Letting me have my way with pretty much everything, and not just small, buying the house, getting the dog, having a baby are just to name a few, not small pretty large decisions there!
  • Letting me lay in on his days off!
  • Bringing me coffee in bed!

So for all of these I want to say Thank You! You have really allowed me to be the person that I want!

Then there is Baba, Baba has made my life complete. I love to be his mummy and I want to thank him for all the laughs that he gives us. The unconditional love that I have for him, and basically everything about him. From the crying to the laughing to the babbling and shouting Mum all day long! Thank you for just being him, and being mine and Mr L’s!

There are so many other people who I could thank, my dad, Mr L’s parents and many other friends to many to mention. But I would be here forever, so you all know who you are and I would like to say thank you to you all! x
