Grateful for Cherished Moments

I am grateful on this day, 
Wednesday, 15th December 2010, 
for Cherished Moments
.
I'm writing about this before the thoughts escape me, 
before they float off into the ether.

.

This morning much like any other morning started by seeing Charlotte off to work,
 she's staying with us whilst her bathroom is being renovated,

Over the past three years she has 
stayed with us on and off
 since coming back from life in the big city, all battered and bruised.
She's been on her healing path ever since.


Lately life has taken a leap forward for her
after two years or so out of work,
after pulling herself up off of the ground,
after preparing and putting herself through rigorous interviews,
she landed herself the perfect job
 at the University of Derby!!!
and
She's met someone who is making her happy!!!


This morning I packed her off to work, 
it was Christmas lunch day,
 I ironed her frilly blouse
 thinking how lovely she was going to look,
she had no earrings to go with, 
so I fetched her a pair of mine.
She looked gorgeous as she 
walked through the door,
we kissed and hugged.


I wrote all of this down 
because these are cherished moments.

We've been through 
a very tough journey together
and 
these are precious moments to savour,
to wrap in special delicate wrapping,
for these precious moments
I'm grateful.

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends... By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering... On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy feeling all loved up in the comfort of haiku... Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring... Happy weekend all haiku lovers... Haiku my Heart Recuerda mi Corazon
