Thank You

I would just like to say a big thank you for all the support and comfort that I have been receiving.

Its nice to know that I have so many friends around the world in the stitching fraternity. My Mum was very special to me. Over the years we have nearly lost her on a couple of occasions but she was a lady with very strong will power and got through a lot of illnesses that were thrown her way. She used to set her self goals such the Sydney Olympics or seeing my sons grow up. All of which she met. When I get upset I just tell myself that its ok, that she is no longer in any pain and is at peace. This is a great comfort for my family.

Also over the years when something like this happens to me I find that I turn to my needlework. Some of the work that I have already posted have special meaning to me.

Anyway, thank you all from the bottom of my heart - Sandra.

I've been away from the computer for a few days (visiting my brother) and I am just catching up.

I am so sorry about your Mom. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Dear Sandra,

I just read about your Mum's passing and wished to add my message of condolence to those of all your other stitching/blogger friends.

It sounds as though your Mum's been through so much. To have endured so many bouts of cancer is both mind boggling and sad. She is now free from pain, and at peace and for that alone I expect you're all grateful.

It's a testament to her personal strength that she survived for so long. And it's also a strong indication of her love for her family that she put up such a fight.

I hope that as the time passes you'll find some easing of the pain and loss that you must be feeling right now. And I hope that the expressions of love and sympathy from your blogging friends, including me, will help with that.

Hugs and love from Judy
