Ring out the old ...

Here we are on the edge of 2010 ... For me personally it has been a very eventful year ... one I'm sure I could write a book about ... a journey that has taken me to every conceivable place in my soul ... And here I sit content ... a lot braver, a life fuller, and with lessons learned ... 
Today is always a day of reflection ... and yet also a day of hopeful anticipation ... On this day 8 years ago I found my Mum in a sleep she would never wake from ... I miss her - but I am no longer sad ... I celebrate her ... And I celebrate your friendships ... and want to share a couple of cards that just arrived 


This is from sweet Linda Robinson ... my fellow DT at CCCB ... Isn't that just a beautiful handmade card? "Thank You" Linda ... I love it!


And this beautiful card and precious handmade tag came from Steph ... All the way from Hawaii ... 
"Thank You" so much Steph ...
I can also tell you that the plaque in my previous post was very well received today (sigh of relief) ... both Mother and Daughter were delighted and I can see I will be requested to do a lot more of these! 

I hope you all have a wonderful New Year ... May peace and happiness be your companions throughout the coming year ... Thank you all so very much for your kindness

It's so great that you can look back and reflect now to see how much you've personally achieved and how you're stronger too. I hope this New Year is one that you brave any storms (hopefully few) with hope and celebrate wholeheartedly in all of your blessings! Thanks for all of your lovely comments on my blog- I have appreciated it! xx

I think that anything which happens on New Years Eve will always stay in ones mind. It is nice that you can now celebrate your mum's life.

Happy New Year
