I dreamed a little when I was finishing high school, I wanted to become an art teacher…I was never any good at “art” I could not draw, I did not have any artist talents…also it takes a bit of money to put yourself through Uni, so I got a job…I worked, I travelled a little, I got married and I had kids…but it took sadness, illness and loss to find myself back to my dream and to realise you do not have to be able draw, or paint or even design, to create beautiful works of art. I am loving my new direction in life, yes the journey was bumpy, and no amount of pinnys are going to fill my broken heart of losing Sam, but I am trying! They do get me up each day, they make my heart sing…I am the happiest sad person around xx
My youngest boy started year 5 today, so exciting for him, he is growing up so fast, too fast!! My eldest boy starts year 9 on Friday, so still a couple more holiday days for him. And then there is my angel boy, Sam, he would have been starting high school today, with all his friends, being excited about his next stage in life but nervous as well…but sadly that was not meant to be. Mixed feeling will always be felt this time of year, sadness and loss, but then excitement for my other boys. Sending love to those who share these mixed feeling at this time of year and sending love to those little ones who are missing their first day back at school with friends and are instead fighting for their lives ❤ Also sending love to all the Mum’s and Dad’s who long for this day each year but with the feelings of loss as well, as each year our babies grow more independent and find their own way in this big scary world. Enjoy a nice cup of tea this morning and take some time out for your selves xx
The weekend was quiet for creating, went to a couple of markets instead. Today making some cute little school hair ties for some local mums to pass on to their little ones, I love making beautiful wedding creations but this is better on a whole different level, to see my cute little flowers bouncing around the school yard really makes me smile. You can see Sam smiling away, watching me create while keeping me warm with a cup of chai. Happy Monday!
