A SAD TIME AND HAPPY TIME TOO..



Hello Everyone..

It seems like ages since I have been here.. mainly as my posts were all scheduled for quite a while as I have been through some sad times........... and a happy one too..

My Dad passed away 2 weeks ago and that threw us all into a whirlwind of emotions and confusion.. as it does... and it was so difficult to deal with..





But on the up side.. I have a new beautiful 8lb 1oz Grandaughter..my youngest son [39] and his wife just had their first child together...[ grand child number seven but all as special and precious as the first.] on the 3rd August...




So I am slowly coming back down to earth...back to work.. trying to do some crafting..getting baby cuddles and shedding the odd tear or two...

Thanks for stopping by today..I feel so much better and happier to know that my blog friends are all out there and I can share these moments with you all now..

Our weather is changing and Spring is in the air.. through the day at least.... and that always makes you feel brighter..

Luv CHRISSYxx

As I say, one leaves another is born. Same with dad, remember he passed away and our grand daughter was born. She is a real darling Chrissy and your dad looks a wonderful man. Keep him close to your heart with loving memories each time you look at your grand daughter...
I hope your card arrived...

Chrissy, I am so terribly sorry for your difficult loss. What a beautiful thing to have a little one born to remind us about the circle of life. I am remembering a movie I saw last weekend called "Collatoral Beauty". In difficult times, we must always remember not miss the collateral beauty.

Congrats on your new grandchild and wishing you lots of happy moments with her. Sending you big hugs

Oh Chrissy I am so so sorry to hear about your loss. Parents are very hard to let go of. Sending you hugs. On a brighter note its lovely to see your beautiful little Granddaughter, she is adorable. I remember my first Grandson getting his photo taken with his great Grandfather the day before he died. A bittersweet memory. Thinking of you Chrissy.

Chrissy I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad, it is so hard to lose our parents. Prayers and thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time. My Father's name is Len too, as a side note. It is a blessing to have an angel sent to not take your grief away, but as you said give you a chance to balance the tears of sadness with those of happiness and cuddles. Sending you hugs across the MANY miles.

I'm so sorry to hear about your dad, Chrissy - it sounds as though it's been very hard. And yet, in the midst of all that grief and pain, the new arrival brings joy. Congratulations on lucky number seven (seven grandchildren, wow!), and to your son on his very first child - she's beautiful.
