It’s been a little quiet round here…

I feel like I have been hiding this last week, peeking a little into your lives yet not sharing any of my life with you.
 
Mothers day went by and I felt a little sad.  A little part of me wanted my dad to see what a great mum I am or one that I hoped to be.
 
 
It’s strange but I just missed him so much, I thought I was dealing with the grief and all of a sudden it just came flooding back.
Sorry, I don’t have many words this week but I invite you for a cup of tea and a glimpse at a few things we’ve been up to

Spreading the love

 
I have been thinking about this over and over and  putting the right words down is sometimes hard, that’s why you’ll never find a post from me without an image. 
I express things better that way. 
 
I have been reading a few wonderful things around the blogosphere of late and it makes me tearful, with joy that people feel this way.
 
If you have been following my journey over the last year you’d know about what happened that tore my world apart and left a hole in my heart that is still struggling to heal.
 
So even though I have kinda been this way I have found that I have become more empathetic and understanding towards people’s struggles.
 
So if  I have made you smile even for a teeny bit with a little photo and card, I am glad but I have done it because I felt that some love needed to be spread even with the simplest of gestures.

 

 
If you feel like there is someone that needs a little bit of loving I hope you will take a minute out of your busy schedule and send them an email, or a note, or pop round and say hello, you never know how much that person needs it.
 
Thank you for making me smile with your sweet words, beautiful gifts and gestures.
 
 
I feel the love!(I am off to wipe away a few more tears)

Cheers to a great life

Thank you to all that have sent me messages, I do love reading them but I unfortunately haven’t been able to reply back to you personally.

For those that have been reading, it has been a long and horrible 3 weeks for our family.
We discovered that my dad was ill and unfortunately we had to say goodbye to him yesterday morning with great sorrow.

I really do appreciate your sweet words and it does help in the grieving process to be able to talk about it.

Thank you to sweet friends with messages and gifts along the way.

Thank you again for reading and visiting.
