10 years from now

Today’s challenge from Outmumbered is trying to see ourselves in 10 years time.

If you had asked me this six months ago I would have replied like any “normal” mummy, who had not known grief and sorrow. I would have said I would have been the happy mother of a teenage girl and a preteen boy. With a normal job. And a normal marriage.

But now we have crossed the threshold and are in the “beyond.” Beyond the unthinkable. Beyond our precious son’s death. Beyond the norm.

So where do I see myself 10 years from now?

I see myself living my life as if it mattered.

I see myself creating and keeping alive a legacy in Georgie’s memory.

I see myself as the mother of a teenage girl and if, God will choose to bless my womb, of another precious son or daughter.

I see myself still married and still loving my husband.

But I also see myself in the “beyond.”

Beyond living my life as if it mattered, I see myself living it full of joy and acceptance.

I see beyond the creation of a legacy for Georgie a hoard of blessings being poured on a multitude of lives. And all in my precious boy’s name. And with the help of his Saviour.

I see beyond being a mummy to Emma and to a possible rainbow baby. I see myself “mothering” the unloved, the lonely and the needy. And who knows, beyond the ordinary, the extraordinary of having another child, a child not of my womb but of my heart.

I see beyond being merely married to the man I love and respect. I see us growing stronger and more in tune with each other and with what God wants us to do as a powerful and influential couple in Him.

I see beyond the pain we feel now, I see hope and joy and success and life!

Mum to one beautiful girl on earth and one sweet baby boy in heaven. Privileged carer. Encourager and friend.


  1. They’re lovely things to be seeing in 10 years’ time. I also hope your womb is blessed with a Rainbow. You’ll do Georgie proud with his legacy. Wishing you lots of joy and success. Lots of love xxx

  2. I think “mothering” the unloved, the lonely and the needy – is a lovely way to word it and something I hope for myself one day. Thinking of others even when you’re going through hell is a beautiful trait and I hope you’re granted everything you’ve wished for xx
