Yes it is me......

I am afraid that blogland has been a bit neglected of late. We have been very busy. I would love to say it has been to scrap but not. There is not really much to tell. Life just seems to go by so quickly. I know that there is a lot going on in the world & many people are going through some tough times. It is in these times that I am thankful that I have faith & a conviction that God will get us through. Today we got a surprise, my little bro was contacted by a young lady, Doreen. My parents fostered her two younger sisters when we were growing up. We loved these girls, I cannot tell you how attached we were to them. Also Doreen & her sister Julie were fostered by my granparents. Not once did I resent this I just thought that is what you did, open your home & hearts. Anyway some days you don't feel that maybe you have made a difference in someones life, this proves that sometimes just taking time & loving on people, that it can influence them & this world somehow. Imagine that, loving people for who they are & accepting them faults & all. So it is a short post today, I will leave you with a photo & also a little something that has really inspired me from this girl

3 things today that I am grateful for:

1. A loving beautiful family including my Darling Dad (who goes to a scrapbook shop & buys his daughter scrap stuff but not just for that, for instilling in me the importance of hardwork, love & acceptance, & my Mum even after all she has been through loves me for me & my bro (who I miss like crazy & can't wait to talk to him)
2. My beautiful other half (who is my other rock & with whom I laugh & share life with) I couldn't do it without Him. And of course my 3 cheeky monkeys, love you.
3. My long time friends & the new ones that I have met. Thanks for always being there for me.
Love you
Me xx
