About Me

So here’s a little about me …….

Who am I ? 

I’m a 40 year old woman who simply loves life. I embrace each new day with a nice cup of tea and the philosophy of hoping to make someone’s life a little brighter. 

My life is a wonderful bag of chaos, I’m a mom to four incredible girls. They are 20 19,15 and forever 9. I’m also a newly adoptive mom to a gorgeous 2 year old boy with complex needs and to top this all off I foster a handsome 15 year with special needs too. 

I’ve been married to Alan for the last 20 years and he drives me completely insane but I do love the bones of him. We keep promising ourselves more time just the two of us then we go and do something crazy like adopting a 2 year old. Obviously we just don’t enjoy alone time 😳.

I’ve been blogging now for 9 years and I just love it. I love sharing my story, I love making new friends, having new experiences and making new memories.

This little piece of virtual world is my place to have many conversations. Sharing what’s happening in my chaotic life. Giving my point of view even when not wanted ha ha on world events, politics, current news stories and a lot more. 

Come on and join in the chaos and have a conversation. 

I can’t wait xxxx

  1. Wow, what a story. I’m looking forward to reading more of your blog, and I will be praying for your continued healing after the loss of your daughter. Praise God for His grace!

  2. I too lost my daughter to complications caused by Rett Syndrome. She got her angel wings in August 2009 and was just 3 years old. I will miss her forever. Your words made me cry and brought me great comfort. God bless you and your family.

  4. I totally agree with that Bible verse. On many occasions when I have been out walking, a complete stranger has smiled and greeted me. Not that unusual, we live in a fairly decent, polite area. However, sometimes, these greetings have filled me with unexplainable joy and peace. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, I truly feel I have met an angel!

    God Bless.

  6. Hi Sara, I am a new blogger writing about life with my two teens ( boy & girl aged 16 & 15 ). Much of what you write resonates with me & if you want, please check my blog out at mumonhomework.wordpress – I would love to know what you think about life as a single mum living in the city with 2 growinguptoofast teens…

  7. Your story is a touching one. So many of us take too much for granted in life. I can not imagine the pain of losing a child, but as a mom I am well away of the bond we have with our kids. So sorry for your loss.

  8. I’m visiting to say thank you for your comment on my blog but also to read about the loss of your daughter. I cannot imagine the pain. I have three children under nine years old and I am a full-time dad to them. I cannot imagine life without them. Thank you so much for getting in touch. I’m so glad that your daughter’s chain gives you comfort.

  9. LOVED your post….your willingness to be real and share your pain.
    It’s a powerful story of loss and love. And how you have allowed God
    into your pain and do as He wills. Much healing and blessing’s with the
    opportunity to love on foster children. Praise God our pain does not go
    in vain. God does turn our mourning into dancing. God Bless You and
    your family!

  10. Wow! You are truly inspiring. I am in awe of your strength yet cannot begin to imagine your pain (and pray I never have to). I wish I had a strong faith like you, but it is not something I find easy. I am also in awe of you for fostering. I know that fostering can be extremely challenging, yet it is such a kind and generous thing to do. I have a very close friend who I met through her foster mum, and I helped her foster mum tame her from a frightened, rebellious, suicidal & friendless wild child into a loved and confident girl with hobbies and friends. She’s now one of the most fantastic mums I have ever met and her children are wonderful. Keep up the good work. xx

  11. Sara,
    Thank you for stopping by my space last night! I am so thankful to have followed you back here to your space. Thank you for sharing of your beautiful life, and telling of your beautiful girls and marriage! I am excited to further explore your online home! I pray that today is a good day for you–and that He is the centerpiece of your heart 🙂

  12. Thank you for your courage and willingness to share. Funny, my blog is based off this scripture, too. I invite you to be the first person to visit other than my friends. God bless you.
