A Big Thank You.....



Thanks to you all for all your comforting words about my brother Tom...
        It took a  lot for me to write the post...
               But you all responded in kind...
             And I truly thank you all...from the bottom of my heart...
     It seems everyone has a deep hole in their hearts...
          From a special person...who has gone...unexpectedly...and way too soon...
     No matter the age...the reason...it is always hard to digest...
           So...
              I have such a lovely group of friends here...
                     And you prove it to me...time and time again...

                     This wee gal brings us much joy...and hope for the future...

                           Thank goodness for small miracles...♥️


this is her "cheese" face...♥️


Another long weekend here in good old Canada....
Heading to the cottage shortly...
Family all coming out on Sunday...no rain please!!

Hope wherever you are...you are having a great day...
And have a wonderful weekend....ENJOY!

                   See you all later...

                        Cheers!  :o)

  9. I missed your last post, computer was moved out of office as it got ready for painting. The loss of a loved one is so hard .. Lost my Dad when he was 57 and it was Canada Day. Hard to celebrate that day for a few years. Love the sunflower connection, mine is Canada Geese flying overhead.
    As always Miss V is a charmer. Is your drive to cottage affected by closure of Skyway bridge?
    Enjoy the weekend.

    1. 57 is very young...my mom was a widow at 50...so young!
      Yes...the bridge closure was a pain in the butt....
      We came home the back roads and down the link thru Hamilton and 403 to the 407....added about 1/2 hour to our trip! And, the driver was IMPAIRED! String him up! Hahaha!

  14. So sad to hear about your brother dear friend. That kind of loss is so painful. Greg lost his only brother when they were teens. They were very close! You never get over it. I am sure you think of him daily. He is one of your angels, watching over you.
    Miss V is so adorable. Getting cuter each and every day!
