A FRIEND

You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesturday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesturday.
You can remember her only that she is gone,
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she'd want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.


- David Harkins


My dear friend, Ulrike, passed away at 2am into the next world in the night. A brave woman, who never believed in giving up. Ulrike was 46.

TOO MUCH ON MY MIND

Our dear friend has taken a turn for the worse and she has been in the hospice for the past two weeks. Last night, her husband called us to say that he has been overnighting there for the past three nights with her, keeping her company. Despite her recent major surgery, her body is slowing giving up.

Over the weekend, I stopped work for two days to bake cakes and made fresh pasta as we had my parents-in-law over yesturday; though I admit, I forgot it was Mother's Day when I called them to join us on Sunday. Ahhh, losing track of such things is a common occurrence these days, when I have too much on mind. Hope you all enjoyed the day with your mums.

Some beads I made recently - hope you'll enjoy viewing them. Have a good week.
