Going Home and Tears for Connecticut

Hello ...

I know it's Tuesday which usually see me sharing my DT project for City Crafter Challenge ... But we are taking a 2 week break so the new challenge will be starting on New Years' Day.

 The time has come for me to leave Lincoln for a while ... I am travelling back home today ... bittersweet ... I have to leave my Aunt and the beautiful countryside but I will get to see my son and husband and of course my cats ... I can't say I am looking forward to all the work that awaits me though!

I thought I'd share just a few photos I took whilst staying here ...


The view from my window ... a cold and frosty morning ... I saw a fox walk by but he didn't stay long enough for me to photograph him





and when the sun comes out 


... we get a beautiful sunset


I couldn't end this post without mentioning the dreadful events in Connecticut ... 


My heart is heavy with your loss and my sympathies are with everyone that has been affected ... 

There are some things in this world that we can never begin to understand yet we cannot live in fear nor let our children live in fear ... 
Many hearts will never mend from this atrocity ... Lives will be changed forever ... so many victims ... 
Stay strong and in doing so you do not allow yourself to be another one of his victims ... 
Choose to be a survivor ...
~~~

Have a wonderful day and please note that there will be no new challenge at Papercraft Star either this week ... our new challenge begins 26th December

A very beautiful post Ros, your photos are amazing, so much beauty... So happy that you notice these things, for that's life, isn't it? Enjoy the small gifts that life bestows upon you. That's why we have to keep the light in our hearts for those who have left our world... Take care my friend, Ira x

I do hope you had a safe journey home. I really enjoyed your photos.
Those little birds are so sweet.

It was so tragic what happened in Sandy Hook. I can't even watch. It upsets me so. My prayer go out to all who were affected by this senseless tragedy.
