L-R - Top row - My dad, my brother, my sister's husband
Middle row - My mama, my little sister, me, my other sister and her wife (I'm sure I will tell the story of how I discovered she was lesbian at some point ... it's a bit of a cracker :) )
Bottom row - GEORGE! (my nephew), Hannah and my little sister's boyfriend xxx
Unfortunately, my boyfriend was mia that day :(
Sorry about the quality of the top photo, but it's the only one I've got of the whole family together. Hannah is the short, blonde one :) and George is her little boy (also short and blonde). I cannot explain how proud and amazed I am that she managed to get through pregnancy, and have a healthy baby and be healthy-ish herself afterwards. SO proud. Last year, I decided to run a half marathon that's how proud :) it tested my love for her that's for sure.
Anyway, my ramblings are supposed to make the point that my sister pushes me to be better everyday, and to make the most of life, and I refuse to imagine life without her. She's a pretty incredible woman!! :) Another point, was that if you, or someone you know, are suffering from CF or a similar disease, you can still do so many things in your life (within reason, although my sister would probably argue not). My dad was told when she was born that she wouldn't live past 4, she is now 34 and has had a pretty remarkable life, and managed to get married and have a beautiful little boy.
So now you know a little bit more about me and my life, and I hope it provides a little bit more depth to this blog.
