Hi friends, fellow mummies and readers. I do hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a good start to 2016.

I am excited to say that I have started blogging again! ? So for those of you who have read my blog in the past, hello again and to those of you who are first comers… welcome!!!

The last few years have been kept occupied taking care of my family and unfortunately I didn’t keep up with my blog. I am learning that days on this motherhood journey can be unpredictable and I can only take one day at a time. So I cannot promise that this will continue (as much as I would love it to) but I will give it my best shot!!!

It has taken me a lot of courage to do this again as there are many reasons why I could talk myself out of it!! Not being able to keep it up is one: I feel my main job right now is to raise my 3 small children and love my husband. So I may not be able to commit to weekly posts but I am willing to give it a try!

There is also the challenge of making sure my posts do not offend readers as there are many opinions out there and it’s easy to compare our lives with others: I am fully aware that there are different circumstances and I am just sharing my own personal one. Please know my heart is never to offend but only to encourage. What I feel is right for me and my family may not be what you feel is right for yours… and that is ok!!!! I just love writing and have a passion to encourage others. So this is what Honest Mummy is all about.

I also realize I may write on small petty things that seem insignificant compared global issues and sometimes I wonder if I should bother, however I am reminded that:

“God cares about every detail of our lives – even the small challenges of motherhood”.

So I am just going to stop thinking of all the reasons why I shouldn’t and just roll with it!

I look forward to sharing more of my stories with you as we continue this journey of parenthood!

Praying 2016 is your best year yet!

Love Melly X
