31 Day Blog Challenge - Day 17

Day 17 - What is Your Most Proud Moment.

As a mother, obviously my proudest moment is having my three boys.  Although they were all born by c/section, I am still proud of being able to carry them and have them.

My next proudest moment is completing Shine for Cancer Research's half marathon night walk.  Anyone who knows me knows that I 'don't do' exercise, so to walk 13.1 miles was a real challenge.  I did it in honour of a fantastic little girl who sadly died a couple of weeks ago from leukaemia.  The way I saw it was if this wonderful little girl could battle leukaemia with the amount of courage and grace that she had, then surely I could do this.

It took me 6 & 1/2 hours to complete and I can honestly say that it was the hardest thing that I have ever done.
