It was a Budget which will support those who have been worst affected by Westminster's cuts and reforms which have hit the most vulnerable.
It is a Budget that supports and protects our public services - services which are hugely important for the people of Glasgow, and Scotland.
As I have said before in this column, the UK Government's imposition of the 'bedroom tax' is unfair and ill-advised. It will affect many of the most vulnerable here in Glasgow - almost 40% of housing benefit recipients in the city will be hit with a penalty which could be more than £20 a week.
On the day of the Budget, Shelter Scotland held a demonstration outside the Scottish Parliament against this iniquitous charge.
Part of this campaign called for extra funds to help those struggling the most with the cost of the bedroom tax.
I am, therefore, delighted that the Scottish Government Budget will see an additional £20million invested in providing help for people affected by the benefit changes.
This immediate action will make a real difference to people living in fear of losing their homes.
As well as this commitment, the Budget will also allow the Scottish Government to maintain the £33m Scottish Welfare Fund, which provides essential crisis support for those who need it the most, continue the council tax freeze, maintain free prescriptions, free personal care, free tuition and free eye tests.
This Budget shows how the Scottish Government is working hard to mitigate the effects of Westminster's harsh cuts, cuts that Scotland does not want and did not vote for.
The 'bedroom tax' was imposed upon us by a Government we did not elect.
It is about time we took our own future in our own hands, and next year's vote on independence will give us that chance.
Sometimes, people face situations in their lives that can make finances seem like the least of their worries.
I cannot begin to imagine how heartbreaking it must be to lose a child.
I was recently contacted by an organisation called Saying Goodbye, which is part of a charity called The Mariposa Trust.
Saying Goodbye, started by a husband and wife who lost children in infancy, is organising commemorative services across the country for people who have experienced the loss of a child at any stage in their life.
It is truly inspirational that something so tragic is being used to reach out to people.
Saying Goodbye are holding a service at Glasgow Cathedral this Saturday at 11am. All are welcome.
