New Years Eve - An Angel

Welcome to New Year's Eve, I hope you have a great day and enjoy some celebrations this evening with loved ones and friends. We are having a few neighbours in and the family round to celebrate, but there is a sting in the tail for me today as it is the first anniversary of my dear Mum passing away and of course there are bitter sweet memories that this day holds for me.

However we must look forward to another new year and I wish for the world to become a more peaceful place and that humankind learns to live with one another more happily; with a focus of improving the environment and ensuring our planet stays safe for our future and our grandchildren's future.

I was playing the other day (as you do) and decided to try out another workshop activity from the La Blanche book. A simple piece, I had fun doing it and I used  a La Blanche stamp.

Dedicated to my Mum who was always an 'angel' in oh so many ways. I love you Mum.

I wish each and everyone of you a wonderful new year's eve and a happy, healthy and peaceful new year ahead. Thank you for being a follower, a friend and a blogging buddy. Thank you for your supportive and encouraging comments and messages and thank you for being a part of my life. I am grateful to each and every one of you for visiting me.

New Year's Reflections
Looking back on the months gone by,
As a new year starts and an old one ends,
We contemplate what bought us joy,
And we think of our loved ones and our friends.
Recalling all the happy times,
Remembering how they enriched our lives,
We reflect upon who really counts,
As the fresh and bright new year arrives.
And when I ponder those who do,
I immediately think of you.
Thanks for being one of the reasons I'll have another Happy New Year!
