Mum and Dad are such fabulous folks I love them very much It’s not just me, everyone who knows them, loves them
and says just how much fun They always are ♥ They love their holidays in the sun And they live their lives being happy together They like to play And on most days They’re up for a laugh Keeps them young at heart ♥ I miss them every second of every day But weekly chats, to see their faces To hear their news To laugh with each other Makes it all okay ♥ Parents are the best They love you until their dying breath As a child you get unconditional love And that love is returned to you For all the things you do And for all the things you say This love is for you Until the end of days
One of my best travel moments was when I went travelling in 2008, and my friends had come to visit me in Thailand. What I didn’t know was that my friends had been plotting with my family for my folks to come and visit me for my birthday.
My friends and I had arrived on Koh Phi Phi and little did I know that, on the day of my birthday, my family was en route to the island to surprise me. When we woke up, we had breakfast and one of my friends went off to sort out a hotel for her friend that was arriving later that day, or so she told me, what she was actually doing was meeting my family off the boat.
A little while later, she called me to arrange to meet her at a bar for a few birthday drinks. When we got there, we ordered a drink and a few minutes later my mum, sister, brother and my brothers’ friend arrived. I had my back to them, so when I turned round and saw them, you can imagine my reaction. I was lost for words, in fact I recall saying “What the f…..g hell are you doing here?” My mum allows swear words in times of excitement!
I really had no clue that they were coming, it was such a fabulous birthday surprise, and after rounds of hugs and kisses, we all shared the most wonderful day. We had a fabulous week all together, enjoying boat rides, snorkelling in the blue sea around the islands, sunsets, and evenings of delicious food and drink.
All too soon, they were heading home, but it was one of the best travel moments of my life, and I will always remember it. I’m so thankful for my friends and family for conspiring in, what turned out to be, the best birthday I’ve ever had!
To have a sister is a wonderful thing And I feel blessed because I have two Someone to share laughs with To share secrets To support, love and cherish ♥ We’re different people Have different desires
Our paths in life may diverge But we’re not far from one another And respect is always there ♥ I love my sisters I hope they live their lives to the fullest To take risks Do things that make them grow ♥ You’re a mother, a daughter, and a friend In my eyes you are amazing Strong women, able to nurture A role model, a coach, and a leader ♥ Whatever you do Wherever you go, you’ll always be loved But take time for you, be happy and be free My sisters
