Blogtober 2020 – I Should Be So Lucky

We are into day 11 of Blogtober 2020, so far I am keeping up with the challenge.  Today’s theme is I Should Be So Lucky.

With Kylies song going through my mind I have been thinking long and hard about what I should be so lucky about. Instead of writing a post about things I wish I was lucky to have or want.  I am going to write about what I am lucky to have.

I am very lucky and grateful to my family, I have a wonderful husband who has put up with me for 21 years.  He can always make me laugh when I am down, and tell me straight if I am being stupid, or stressing about something out of my control.

I have an amazing Daughter, who has been my world since she came into the world nearly 17 years ago.  From the tiny newborn, to a very cheeky toddler.  I have watched her grow and become the amazing person she is today.  She has had a few years of challenges that I defy anyone to cope with.  Since getting ill with a chronic illness, she has shown just how amazing she is.  Everytime she has a crash, or one of her symptoms flairs up more than usual, she shows her strength.  She has cried and broken her heart to me, and I could not make it any better apart from listen and cuddle her.  She is a tough little cookie

My two stepsons, who have been challenging at times, and even now as grown men they never stop keeping me on my toes.  I have watched them grow from young children into the men they are today.  I have a great relationship with them and they come to me if they need anything, as they know I am a soft touch and just want them to be happy.


We all need friends, they are the ones we talk too, the ones who we contact if we need to talk about something, or upset over something.  Friends are the people who tell it to you straight, whether you like the answer or not.  We have some amazing friends, and whether we see them regularly or we rarely see them.  I can pick the phone up anytime and ask for help.

What do you feel lucky about?
