Let the healing begin !

Through this past week it has been busy and emotionally draining.
One good thing though - sorting through all my late mother's papers I got confirmed that it has been so very right to protect myself and my family from her substance abuse, which lasted to the end.
Now we have to wait for 2 months to know how my late mother's financial situation is. The papers are sent to court and now we can do nothing but wait and start the healing process.

Today is Mother's Day here in Norway,
and my girls gave me these lovely gifts.

I love you both, and I am so proud to be your mother !!

We will be celebrating DH's mother later today :-)

Today is also Valentines Day

I absolutely love tulips. They bring tidings of spring and longer days.

We also celebrate Fastelavn, the last Sunday before Lent.
Traditionally we eat wheat buns with cream.
We have baked some with raisins, which is our favourite :-)

I have also picked up thread and needle, and I must say I feel blessed being able to create and enjoy both the sight and the feel of fabrics.
The last 3 blocks for Svennebrevet are under construction.

Du har tatt de rette beslutningene hele veien. Noen ganger så er det tøft,men i lengden så er det det som er riktig. Du vet at jeg har måtte tatt lignende beslutninger og de har nok også vært de riktige.
Men da er det jo godt å ha hobbyen vår som terapi. Det er mye terapi i stoffer og mønster og ikke minst gode venner :)
