Welcome to my blog! I never really thought I would create a blog untill hubby set up a family one. I started posting to it and was told off for "hijacking" it with my "craft rubbish!" And so the Nerdbird Blog was born! Not sure how much I'll post but I understand that this blogging lark can be addictive!

SFIO - Gratitude no2!

The latest challenge on SFIO was to do a LO with some kind of patchwork and to use flowers, and to scrap things you are Grateful for. I took it in a slightly different direction.
Hidden journalling is in the pocket behind the big flowers.
"I have learnt with my grief that crying over what I have lost and will miss out on is futile, it only makes me feel crap, instead it is far better (and I am sure what Mum would have wanted) to be grateful for what we did have.
I had a brilliant childhood and a fantastic relationship with Mum
Mum saw both Glenn and I get married and also remarried Dad
She adored her 3 grandchildren
We had a wonderful trip to New York, somewhere she really wanted to go to and I got to share it with her.
No matter what ups and downs she had she loved live and certainly lived.
Alot of people don't get to have half of what I had with Mum, and for that I am truely grateful"
