Goodbye 2021

It has been a different 7 months from what my family and I planned for this year

Very soon after my last post in May, my father passed away unexpectedly. 
He was due for a heart valve replacement, and was very nervous for the outcome. 
Luckily for him, he passed away in his favorite place, in his sleep,
perhaps dreaming about the next day's fishing trip with friends.

Sadly, his estate was not in any kind of order. 
It was lessons to be learned from that....

You never know how strong you are, before being strong is your only option.
I am very grateful for my close family and friends who supported me trough a tough time. 

My DH also spent time in hospital in late autumn. 

I could not concentrate much on sewing through these months,
but I have knitted and stitched and meditated a lot.

We also have things to celebrate this year.

Our second grand baby was born in September. 
He and his big brother brings lots of joys to our lives.
We have all got our vaccine shots and kept healthy. 

We live in within 1 hour driving distance from the most precious people in our lives,
our girls and their families.

I have set my priorities for 2022. 

One often says that all good things comes to an end.
I am a firm believer that all bad and sad things comes to an end too.


As 2021 is almost over, it is time to look forward, and put good intentions to action.

Wishing you a wonderful day, wherever you are.
