We've just said farewell to our friends after spending a few days at Quarter Deck Cottage.
We shared a few idyllic days
walking, laughing, dining, and chatting...
Good friends are such a gift and I am so grateful to have them in our lives.
It has been a difficult year for us and I am not sad to say goodbye to 2017.
Many things have contributed to the current sadness in our family.
A sadness so deep that it has rocked us to the core.
Shock, disappointment and grief
emotions so strong that at times it has crippled me.
There is very little that I can do
to change the situation that affects our family.
It is beyond my control.
I will help and support our family to the best of my ability.
Craving a space that is calm
I find it in simple routines...
The repetitive motion of knitting
walking along the seafront
reading with the cat slumbering on my lap
I am conscious of inviting gentle rhythms
of everyday living
into my daily round.
Not sure how things will turn out...
it is a situation
if I allow it,
to rob me of sleep
make me weep
prevent me from feeling contentment and happiness.
My wish is for a Peaceful
resolution for our family.
Happiness in the New Year might be awhile coming but I am hopeful.
Best wishes to you all for 2018.
Thank you for stopping by...
