Welcome 2013, it has been a great year so far, been off for a couple of weeks as so have a lot of bloggers. Christmas was good, didn't feel great, had got a cold at my brother in laws funeral-Dec. 5th, turned really bad on Christmas eve, that turned out to be the not such a bad thing. My Mother in law passed away Dec. 28th, went to bed and never woke up. Best way to go. So we ended the year with a funeral, with one of the greatest kindest women, she is in heaven for sure with Jesus.
Years ago I had given this poem to her-framed for her wall, I think my father in law, loved it more than anyone, he use to show everyone that came in...
To My Other Mother
You are the other mother I received,
the day I wed your son.
And I just want to thank you, Mom
for the loving things you've done.
You've given me a gracious man,
with whom I share my life.
You are his lovedly mother,
... and I his lucky wife.
You used to pat his little head,
and now I hold his hand.
You raised in love a little boy,
and then gave me the man.
I am showing gratitude to this woman for the son she raised. Her name was Meda, not a common name at all anymore, one of her grandsons named his daughter Meda, which is wonderful it will carry on for another 90 years. God bless you Meda...
On Friday evening we had her auction, this was planned before she passed and just carried on. She had a large collection of Royal doultons that she loved and everyone that gave her one was given it back.
Here is a picture of those we received back, then I was fortunate to get some cups n saucers, a couple I had admired for years, what a treasure that I will cherish...
well great, just went to put on my pictures and I can't find them, I go to the link (the little square picture beside link) that I have been using for the past year and it doesn't have a categorie for pictures on my files, just disappeared and I have no clue what to do. It has blog, picasso web, camera, web cam and url. Help, I had chintz on my side pages before and lost them too.
Sorry, wanted to show all my new cups n saucers, and to have a tea
