Very sad news

My dear friends, I just wanted to let you know that my beautiful, mad, vibrant, headstrong, WONDERFUL Mom passed away last Saturday.  She had been in poor health for years but her death was sudden and has left us all reeling in shock.  I am still trying to accept the fact that she is not around any more.
Crafting is my therapy so I'd probably still be making some cards but posting will be very erratic on my blog for at least a month and there might be some totally quiet periods.

I hope you understand.

Big hugs to you all

Sweetie, my heart goes out to you. I went through this myself a few years back. Same situation with my mom, she was only 54. I do know what you're going through. I wish I could be there to give you a great big hug. Try to stay strong and when you can't know that we are all here for you. Some days will be easier than others on those bad days look up and know that your mom is looking right back at you!

All my love = Jen

Frea said...

Oh Annika, I'm so sorry sweetie. I know just how you are feeling right now! The fact that it came so sudden and unexpectedly makes it even more difficult to cope with. The only comfort I can offer is the fact that she is not suffering anymore. If you want to talk cry or scream I'm here hun!! You know I've just been through this myself so if anyone knows how it feels it's me. Wish I could give you a real hug but you're too far away so this will have to do. XOXOXO Frea

Ann English said...

Dear, dear Annika, yes, sweetie, I understand all too well. You've suffered so much loss in the last few months. I am lifting you up in prayer, my friend. Please, please take the time you need. Understand that learning to live with loss is a long, hard process. You need to take care of yourself, treat yourself gently, reach out and pull in... Know that so many people care about you. You are not alone. Love your little ones. If you didn't know it before, you sure do now-life is uncertain, short- live and love in the moment. Blessings, dear girl.
Cyber hugs,
Ann
