Do you know how special you are?

Really...you are ALL so very special to me...we might not know each other if we pass on the street...we might look different to how we imagine...we might have lives that are poles apart...we might be of any age or nationality...but you are all amazingly kind, caring women who share this snippet of my life without judgment or question. And you all rallied to send your sympathies over this last sad week. How lovely to know all of you...thankyou for the kind thoughts which have been a beacon to me.
Thankyou Donna, Maree, Joan, Deb K, Jeni, Steph, Anne Heidi, Tatiana, Lise, Fiona, Kylie, Sylvia, Liz, Chris, Kerri, Veena, Anita, Miriam, Peg, Julia, Deb, Robyn, Patricia, Peggy, Shiree, Janice, Shelly, Lurline, Jackie, Jeanette, Loulee, Julie, Christine, Cheryl, Suz, Clare, Chriss, Judith & Ann Marie...and all those that in so many ways have shared my grief.

And a special thanks to my Dad for teaching me to appreciate the special people we meet in life.

Hi Alison, I am so sorry for your loss. I would have realised sooner, but unfortunately I lost my Nanna at the same time and it's very hard to function with the everyday stuff when your heart is breaking into pieces. It sounds like he was a wonderful man... Memories are so special and I will treasure my Nans memory as you will your dad's. All the best to you and your family. xx

I just caught up and want to send my heartfelt sympathy to you, your Mom and all your family. It's hard to lose your parents. My dad passed away 11 years ago, my mom, just a year ago. I feel the loss of my dad just as deeply as my mom. Cherish all your memories and know that your love will always keep him near.
