Hello my lovelies how are you all? The weather up here by the sea is beautiful & sunny altho very windy again & I had to fight with it to peg my washing out lol.
Do you ever have those moments when you are thankful for all that you have? I have them everytime I look around my home & see all the photo's of my kids & my family. We all go through hard times at some point in our life but its these hard times that give us strength & determination. We learn from them & they make us stronger, they make us appreciate what we have & make us feel thankful.
I am the person today because of what has happened in my life, it has made me stronger, it has made me show more appreciation & to love more. It has made me realise that yes altho I have lost loved ones I am lucky that I had the chance to love them & to be loved from them........nothing can ever take those away.
I am stronger, more independant, more apreciative & love the life I have been given. These I have passed on to my children in which hopefully they will pass onto theirs & the circle of life continues stronger as each generation unfolds.........enjoying life as they see it.
No-one sees life the same way as someone else but thats what makes us unique, dont live it the way someone thinks you should, or someone tells you you should..........live it for YOU, yes we all make mistakes but those are made so we can learn from them..........at the end of the day you have to believe in yourself!!!
I heard a quote a while back & always remembered it so today I thought I would make it into something you could maybe snag for your blog or anything else you would maybe use it for..........I've done it for a book which I will show you once I've done some, still in the prep stages at the moment lol. Anyway here is the quote.......I absolutely love this saying & totally believe it.
I had someone say to me once that there cant be a God because I wouldn't have a disabled daughter, I say that it was God who gave her to me & Craig because he knew no-one would love her as much as we would & that alone gave my daughter something to fight for. I truly believe things happen for a reason & out of everything bad that happens good also comes from it. It may take you a while to see it & you may have to look real hard but it will be there, deep in the fog that is clouding it. I lost 2 sons but was also given 2 sons & God knew I would love these 2 boys & protect them with all my power, strength & most importantly love!!!!!
We have lost important people in our family but its made us all more thankful & closer than we were, we know life can change at any given moment so we now value each other & love each other as much as we can for as long as we can.........because no-one knows how long each of us truly have.
After all its better to have loved & lost than to never have loved at all.
Sorry for my deep & meaning thought I know its a craft blog but the thing to blogging & the whole idea behind it are there are NO rules........you put on your blog what is in your heart, what you have created, whether that be cards, thoughts or even another life you have created.
Please feel free to snag my little quote, I'm not sure who would have said this original quote & I cant even remember where I heard it as it was a while ago but its something thats always stayed in my mind.....believe me not a lot does stay up there lol.
Tatty bye my lovelies see you all soon mmwah xoxoxoxo
