My family, especially my daughters Libby and Mandy
My job
being by the sea
walking in the country
dancing in the rain
writing (wouldn't be here if I didn't)
being with friends
dark nights by the fire with a good book and wine
long soaks in the bath
the wind through a windchime
the sun on my face
all wildlife

nothing but a few things irritate not worth mentioning

Has had to re-invent myself following the death of my husband 2 years ago and I've learned that I am a stronger person than I thought and that true friends stand by you when others walk away.

I have had to learn to do things by myself and I've made solo journeys, surprised how happy and content I can be with my own company.

My philosophy - CARPA DEUM (seize the day) - for there may never be a tomorrow

Happy Holidays

Just a little blog to extend a very happy thanksgiving to my all of my  friends on Poetry Soup hoping that it brings you and your families many blessings.  I also hope that the coming Christmas Season is a peaceful and joyous time for you all.

My girls and I shall be spending our first Christmas without Billy, together here at home, comforted by happy memories of Christmas past.

New Year will be welcomed by dancing merrily and with gay abandon at a Soul Music night at our club and as this year comes to an end, I shal be equally sad and happy. Sad for the loss of my beloved husband this year, but full of hope for what the new year will bring and what fate has in store.

Happy Thanksgiving xx

    I hope you have a special Holiday season. I know it won't be a "merry" time but it can still be a good and special holiday with your family and friends. Steve

    Janette, I'm really glad you have your daughters with you this coming holiday AND that you will be attending the Soul Music affair at your club on New Years. I hope you can find comfort in your memories of Billy and past holidays. I'll be thinking of you and offering prayers as well. Love, Carolyn

    And the same to you Janette, may the coming year be a healing place. So glad you have plans to begin the year by dancing....We never know what the future may bring, but a dancing spirit will keep you strong. Blessings to you and yours. ~ Carrie
