The Butterfly Touch
Originally uploaded by GlossyEye
Tomorrow is my mum's birthday..She would of been 59 years old...Let me tell you a little bit about this wonderful person..
She was beautiful..
She was giving...
She was smart...
She was passionate...
She was a teacher of life..
She loved unconditionally...
She embraced life...
She was a fighter...
She had strong values...
She was forgiving...
She was a grandmother a partner a friend
But most of all she was my mother and I was very blessed to have her in my life...
She was diagnosed with cancer almost two years ago and given two days to live..But the fighter she was she fought it for three months.. Im sure that was partly for us as we all lived in the US and she lived in England..
All her Grandchildren and my sister got to fly over and spend some special time with her..
I miss her everyday. I miss talking to her,her advice,her funny little personal jokes that we shared.but most of all I miss her love....
Im not sure if there is an afterlife or anything but I do know that when ever I feel low or upset I see a orange butterfly(I have always loved butterflies)and I just feel its her telling me everything is going to be ok..
I love you and miss you so much mum..
From your forever grateful daughter..

Another day of rain...but tomorrow they promise SUN...Oh how I pray they are right, I don't think I can go another day with rain...But on the other hand if I had this living-room I wouldn't mind staying in out of the rain.
This weekend I will be working at the store(moving things around & putting new items out..) and then hubby and I will be doing the taxes to see how much we didnt make last year:0(..
so, I hope you all have a much better weekend then I, and see you next week...

Anyways, Our trip down to my sisters was very productive..
Long story short my sister and my 8 year old nephew live in a 1 bedroom condo, so my sister has lived in the diningroom for the last 4.5 years and the front door opens straight into it..So hubby and I went down and did some serious painting,moving furniture.building shelving(gotta love IKEA)and reorganizing...And guess what she LOVED it...as did my nephew..I will post the pics when I can get the thinging to work!!!!!!!!!
We did get to spend a little time for ourselves we went to the beach, did some window shopping, went to a flee market...It was so nice the weather was great about 74 degrees and the sun was a shinning bright..And as we haven't seen any sun in a couple of weeks it was very nice indeed....
Then we headed home..back to work and the rain.. It hasn't stopped since we got home..
I really hope it lightens up though, the store get really quiet when its rainy like this. People don't like to go out in this yucky weather...
well lovely's hopefully this picture glitch will be fixed soon..
talk to you soon..

This is what I will be doing this weekend.....My son Lee is in Afghanistan and he has put in a request for one of my handmade blankets....i picked out some great pirate looking material but hubby said he would get bullied by his bunkmates..but when I talked to Lee the other day he approved the pirates he thought it would be cool..I mean really wouldn't every 22 year old man fighting a war want a cool pirate blanket...
See you next week....

we’ve always wanted to find.
We must become our own best friend.
We must learn to give ourselves
and to receive from ourselves
unconditional love and acceptance.
It is not selfish.
It is the first giant step toward selflessness.

And then I think what else can I do to support my business, the business that I am passionate about, the one that I want to succeed, where we can support the local community as well as ourselves..The one where people love to come in..And thats just it everyone that comes in tells me they love the look, the feel, the atmosphere..
So the challenge for me this year is to do everything in my power to make it a huge success..
So i need your help anyone out there have any great ideas to help me accomplish this task..I would love to hear what you have to say..
I know i can hear you say well you don't have many followers.. OK, I really only have a couple of you(and I am grateful to all 5 of you)But I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, and maybe you could get some input from your friends too...
Thank you for listening to me worry..
