Hello! I hope you are all having a lovely April so far!
Firstly my apologies for not being around… unfortunately my April has been a little bit of a struggle so far, as illness has hit our home pretty hard. My daughter was sick throughout the Easter school holidays and I was (trying to) fight off illness myself. To cut a long story short, my daughter thankfully got better, but then I became very sick and ended up in hospital on Saturday evening. I’m starting to recover slowly now whilst on bed rest, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to catch up here! I usually love April as it symbolises so many changes and new beginnings, so hopefully it will start to improve now!
I wanted to share some of my good news with you. I submitted a poem earlier this year to be considered for a book of poetry, all about celebrating motherhood. Being a mother of two myself, this is obviously sonething very close to my heart.
Last month I found out that my poem had been accepted and was going to be published in this wonderful collection of poetry. My copy landed on my doorstep last week and I’m overjoyed! This is my second piece of published poetry, and I’m incredibly proud that my hard work is starting to pay off!
The book is called WOMb and has some truly gorgeous writes inside… I’ve loved curling up and enjoying reading all about everything that makes motherhood so amazing! It’s a very empowering collection of poetry, which just so happens to be my favourite type. Words that empower, strengthen and heal will always hold the most special place in my heart and soul.
Proceeds from the book go towards several women’s charities and I’m honoured to be helping to raise funds and awareness for such a worthy cause.
It is a huge moment of pride to see your name in ink and something I’ve dreamed of since being a little girl…It’s also pushing me into working towards writing a book of all my own poetry (another dream I’m determined to fulfill)!
