2016 Begins ..... Happy New Year Everyone

As always I welcome you to my blog. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. From my family to yours I hope that 2016 brings much love, health and wealth to each and everyone of you. For all those crafting I hope your mojo flows.

2015 was a hard year for the boys and I. My beautiful mum lost her very courageous battle with cancer. She had a strength that was so beautiful, fighting so hard for so long to stay with the boys and myself. Sadly though with a strong heart and mind filled with love cancer become to powerful for the rest of her and on 3rd of December god give her beautiful wings to fly high and watch over us. 

With broken hearts we organized her funeral and memorial. It felt like this was no sooner done and we had to have Christmas without her and our hearts cried so much again. This followed by New Years Eve which was always spent with mum and us sleeping over. Our hearts cried so heavy again. Then we faced her birthday, 1st January 2016 and we woke in our own beds and no mum/grandma. Harley now faces his birthday on the 9th of January and mum wont be with him/us. I wish this hurt wasn't every single day. I wish mum was here to hold me and cuddle me like when I was a little girl. 

After I woke this morning and laid there thinking about mum I knew it was time to try and get through my days a little better. I needed to be stronger like mum. One of the things she loved was my craft work and how much I had grown with it, she was so proud. So as of today I will be burying myself in my boys, crafting and work when it is time to go back. Long service leave has been great but the time comes to get back to normality. Missing my best friend and the most beautiful person I know but none the less I have to do what she wanted. 

Happy New Year and may god bless you all. xxx

  3. Hi Brenda. I am so very sorry for your loss. From what you have said, your Mum was a very special lady and I believe the world has lost a beautiful soul. It's always so hard to go on after losing someone you are so close to but, the memories you have of her, and your boys too will give you the strength to keep going. Do the things you love, enjoy some quiet times too and she will always be there in your heart to share them with you. love and hugs .. Marg .. oxox
