“What A Wonderful World”

Music is such a powerful thing. A song can change your mood, make a memory and just one song can change your life. A quote from Kent Moran.

I was sitting writing with Radio 2 on in the background I don’t really listen to it, it’s just on but What A Wonderful World sung by Louis Armstrong broke through my thoughts.

The sentiment resonated with me as I began to think about the things that had happened in my world recently.

I hope it is as wonderful in yours as it has been in mine this month.

I have received some lovely words of appreciation from some of the families I have had the pleasure to work with. A box was delivered from Moonpig gifts I opened it with such excitement to reveal a personalised thank you card and Lindt chocolates. I was so humbled, that when the family have been experiencing such a sad time in their life they had taken the time to show their thanks to me for their mum’s funeral service. The ceremony was truly a celebration of her life and something that they will be able to look back on with love.

The words of thanks following a recent Baby Naming Ceremony brought tears to my eyes as what could be a happier occasion than welcoming a much longed for baby into a loving family.

A wedding that had been put on hold due to the bride’s health will now be able to go ahead in September. It was with such joy that I took that phone call and booked the day with them.

My daughter’s fourth child was due on the 6th July however, that little girl had other ideas. Daddy was riding from John O’Groats to Lands End in a charity Bike Ride in aid of the Ameila May Foundation. He was due home on Sunday 18th June, he and the team raised over £10,000.

“The Ameila May Foundation’s mission is to support families affected by Neuroblastoma whilst publically raising awareness of the condition”


I received a call from my daughter on Saturday evening to say can you come mum I think this baby is on her way. We spent a very relaxed time as she was having a home birth with the “One to One” Midwives. Such a calm birthing experience and one I was so privileged to share.

The girl with no name arrived at 5.17am weighing 7lb 7oz. Mum and baby are doing so very well. Daddy arrived home safe and sound but saddle sore and instantly fell in love with his Princess.

What A Wonderful World.
