Happy Birthday Anne!

A belated Happy Birthday to our dear friend, Anne McCartney, who celebrated her ahem …. something first birthday yesterday. Anne has been a tremendous spiritual and practical support to Fionnuala and myself in recent years, through good times and bad. Anne and her husband, Graham, have been two of the people who have inspired me to retain a faith in God, no matter how fractured that faith has been at times.

She is kind, loving and wise. She remained loyal to me, when many turned their backs and I was at my lowest ebb. She prays constantly for us and I know exciting times are just around the corner for her as she opens a new chapter of her life with Graham. I only hope I can repay back to her 1% of what she has done for us. Happy Birthday Anne from everyone at chez Black. You are much loved and respected.

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  2. My mom. She has always been there for me even during the years I was a pain in the rear. (and let’s face it, sometimes I still can be a pain) Her unconditional love has gotten me through a lot. She prays constantly for me, which I appreciate. Love you mom!

  3. Today is also my mother’s birthday. Sad;y, she passed from this life many years ago. Still, she remains one of my heroes. She was also a woman of great faith and wisdom and I miss her still. Happy Birthday to Anne, may she know many more…I am glad you’ve had this wonderful source of support in your life.


  4. I would like to say Happy Birthday to your dear friend and also to shout out you who keeps me entertained on a regular basis and makes me feel not so alone in my mental health journey.
