Love is many things!

Love comes in many forms,...the love of a person, a pet and even a place where memories were made. I think today I will reflect...

There have been many people and other animals that have touched my life and you could say, I have loved and been loved many times.

The first people to love me were my parents. They instilled in me the confidence to be the person I am today. I was a feral child, brought up in an unconventional home with the beautiful Gower coast as my garden. I ran barefoot through valleys and over beaches and learnt from a very young age that life is what you make of it.

Then came three siblings! They brought with them a love that will last a lifetime. They are scattered around the globe now,  but there are no walls between us, just water. My cousins are circus people throughout Europe and thanks to media sites, I always keep in touch.

I have made many friends along the way, all of whom have made and left footprints in my life. Each one helped me to grow and taught me many things.  And I have a special love for all the animals that have been and those that still are, a very big part of my life and the life of my dear and unassuming husband.

But the greatest love I have is for my family, for you see, this is where my story begins....
