For the past 20 years I have had the most wonderful job of being a parent to my two boys Taylor and Mason. It has been a thankless job, as most parents would agree, but one I truly loved and thought I wasn’t too shabby at. But now it is time for that new life that ultimately comes after they have both left home for University to begin. I still can not quite believe I am a mother with 2 boys at Uni…its crazy!!!
We raise our children always knowing that one day they will leave and have their own lives of independence, adventure and family. If we get our job right as parents this will be the next natural progression, but my goodness, how hard is it to actually watch it happen. Don’t think I am one of those mothers though who go and sit in my kids bedrooms smelling their clothes still left in the wardrobe, cause I’M NOT! However, I do very often go through my pictures of when they were little and reminisce of all the good times. Soppy I know but hey… it makes me smile.
So once I shake this feeling of melancholy and intense sense of loss, a bit too dramatic..ok, I will be looking forward to my new life. I have a wonderful family who have always been there for me and very supportive through it all… I am a very lucky girl. So fingers crossed I do all the things I have always wanted to do and all the things I probably shouldn’t do. Who knows I might even surprise myself and enjoy this new change of life. There is however one change for sure I will have to make and that will be my children’s ages, as there is only one of us that can be 21yrs and for the last 20 years that has been me!
A NEW LIFE IMAGES
This blog is a place for me to share what I do with you. It is about my love for racing, family and fashion. It is also about being an older athlete and how I manage to keep my training balanced and, most of the time, injury free. I hope to inspire other ladies, regardless of age, to get up and get healthy...just try it!
