You’re One in a mil­lion!

Pick Me Up! - - CONTENTS -

This week we’re say­ing thanks a bunch to Bethany’s mum and dad, Gillian and David, from Manch­ester. She wrote to say...

icouldn’t nom­i­nate just one of my par­ents to re­ceive a bou­quet, as they both de­serve the moon! As the youngest child, I think it’s fair to say that I was spoilt rot­ten. The only com­pe­ti­tion

I had was my older sis­ter Sarah and our cat Lot­tie.

I re­ally did love be­ing my mum and dad’s lit­tle princess!

Of course, grow­ing up, I’d started to yearn for my own in­de­pen­dence and couldn’t wait to go to uni­ver­sity to study men­tal-health nurs­ing.

But when the time came to go, I felt a bit wor­ried.

I suf­fered from anx­i­ety you see, and would some­times have panic at­tacks.

I coped by mak­ing a joke of it. Our fam­ily’s style.

‘How am I go­ing to sur­vive without you two nag­ging me?’ I teased them.

‘The house will sure be quiet,’ Mum told me, sigh­ing.

‘Yeah, be­cause she won’t be stomp­ing around in her room,’ Dad chuck­led.

But un­der­neath all that mickey-tak­ing, there was also so much love.

I rang them daily from uni, some­times in the mid­dle of the night if I had panic at­tacks. They are al­ways there for me. So, thank you so much Mum and Dad, for ev­ery­thing you do.

with over 30 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence of help­ing cel­e­brate life’s spe­cial mo­ments, FREE de­liv­ery by post and a FREE pop-up vase, a gor­geous bou­quet from Fly­ing Flow­ers is a lovely way to say, i’mthinkingof
