Spent a lovely day with friends today - imparticular my Lovin ink 'tother half Michelle. She gave me this as a late gift (she has already bought me gorgeous shelving for my craft room.)
Inside was this beautiful jigsaw in a wonderfully crafted presentation box
with this lovely verse on it.
Thanks Pal I love it lots!.
Yesterday was an odd day - My brothers 36th birthday - or would have been. He died in a car crash 18 years ago. Its always a sad time but this year felt sadder somehow.
My eldest son came home for the night on Sunday - He has grown his hair again over the last year after 3 years of a shaved head - I must say I am relieved - less fond of the beard that has arrived with it but I just want to touch his hair everytime I see him. This time I was reminded of my brother as Toms hair is a similar colour and texture and his birthday is soon - he will be 25. 7 years older than our Richard was when he died - it set me off thinking of the man he would have become and all the years he and we have missed out on .
I just know he would have been a really grand bloke - he was already, funny and handsome but kind and gentle too.
Time doesn't really heal but things do become more bearable as we learn to cope. So yesterday was a tearful day but also filled with memories I treasure very much.
Thanks for stopping by
