My life has undergone so many changes in the past ten years, the most significant (and best) of those changes was finding Elaine and being able to be not just a part of her life, but eventually to become her husband and actually share her life.
But ten years ago today, Elaine’s life changed forever... with the passing of her mother Alma.
I never met Alma, or Elaine’s father Terry, but I’ve heard so many lovely stories, seen so many photographs and let’s face it, they brought Elaine into the world, so they must have been a special couple!
It’s hard for me to imagine how Elaine coped with the terrible events of a decade ago – and how she deals with other issues that have cast a shadow on the happiness I so want for her. She’s more special to me than she will ever know and I just want to say thank you to Terry and, particularly today, to Alma for helping Elaine to the person she is... the person I love.
God bless, Alma xx
All my own work... almost.
