Finding strength through different ways - As the eldest of nine girls, I had to take on the role of being the 'Second Mum' to help Mum out and to be there for my sisters
I stayed at University and focused on completing my degree
Good friends and support around
Even though it was hard, I tried to find the humour in anything to just have a bit of laughter
Listening to what Mum said about my Dad and reminiscing on times when he was around and what he taught me
Walking the dog to get out of the house when it became too much
writing music and listening to music
Spending quality time with my sisters, we'd stay up late talking
Being honest and being able to speak to Mum about anything
Met the love of my life a couple of months after my Dad passed away who gave me so much comfort, support and the chance to start my own family with him.
