Sally Whittle is a full-time blogger at Who’s the Mummy and runs the Tots100, HIBS100 and Foodies100 blogging communities, along with the MAD Blog Awards. She’s also a happy single Mum to her daughter Flea, and together they like to travel, have fun and make fools of themselves on a regular basis.
Sally also has a a big heart and is a very funny lady. Here she shares her most beautiful things…
The most beautiful day I ever had was the day I got my first job in journalism. I remember riding the bus home through Camden after the interview, and realising I’d just got a foot in the door of an industry I’d wanted to join since I was seven years old, after five years of university,working behind a bar at night, and people telling me it was too competitive. The sun was shining and the world felt full of possibility. I think possibility is about the most beautiful thing there is.
The most beautiful thing I have ever seen is my daughter Flea. Specifically when she’s asleep, if you lean in very close and whisper, “I love you,” she smiles in her sleep. There’s no such thing as a bad day when you can see that at the end of it.
The most beautiful thing I have ever owned is the Taylor guitar my friend just bought me. I like to admire its mahogony-topped beauty as I play one of the four chords I know. It’s wasted on me, really, isn’t it?
The most beautiful song I have ever heard is a song called Something Beautiful by Krister Axel (http://axelradio.com/track/something-beautiful). But ask me again tomorrow and I’ll love something else. I never tire of listening to new music.
The most beautiful person I know is my Mother. She’s beautiful on the outside but I have endless admiration for her strength, wisdom and compassion. It takes someone very special to take on foster kids and to adopt children who haven’t had the best start in the world, and help them build new lives, and lucky for me my Mum’s one of those special people.
The most beautiful thing about me is that I try to live up to my Mum’s example and do the right thing, even if it’s not easy. I don’t always get there, but I try and be someone worthy of her, every day.
Thank you Sally Whittle, you made me cry!
