I wanted to say thank you for your gentle kindness, and prayers. I made it back Saturday..from my moms funeral..and have just been resting up...my mother had a lovely service...and I feel my mother with me...now...and it brings me much comfort...she is in everything I do...I went home on angel wings...I know that..as well like most of us..I did not have a dime to my name..I was crying and mario told me to go out and visit a friend...2 hours later...he called me at my friends house...and said come home..you have an hour to pack...he had gone to all my friends and collected from them enough money to get me out on a plane...such gentle kindness..of others will be never forgotton...when I got there I told my mother...mom I told you I would be here and I prayed..and the angels sent me here..I really got there from angels..earth angels who love and care....so much...
I got to spend 12 hours with her before she passed on...that night, I woke up and went to the sink to wash my hands..and as I washed my hands..It hit me ..these hands last touched my mothers face...and as I washed I asked myself what was the greatest thing she taught these hands...and then sat to a table and wrote this poem for her..
A Mother's Prayers Remembered...
As the water flowed - over my hands.
These hands, these hands,
that last touched my mother's face.
These hands, in whom God had placed.
How they held me the day I was born
and nutured me through life.
touching her face.
As the water flowed
from his hands
to her hands
As the water flowed and washed
that last touched my mother's face.
The greatest gift she taught these hands
were how to fold in faith.
Then the prayer...of Our Father..was said.
Thank you for your gentle kindness and prayers...with warmest regards, Joanne

This is just a quick post to say a warm and kind thank you for those who have kept me and my mom in their prayers..I am going home and getting a chance to be with my mom...and be there when the time comes...through the kindness of others..around me...God saw a tear and kissed it away with the smile of a friend..Thank you so very much with all of my heart.
When I am back home, I will post the next parts of the kit.

Little Girls Garden Part One
This is the first part of this months kit, I hope it will give you lots of pleasure.
There is as always more then what is in the preview.
All bits and pieces are created in 300 dpi..and..a few files have been left in layers
in case you wish to change a few things.
I thank all the beautiful people who left comments, how truly touching a few chosen words can be and sometimes how the right thing will touch your heart at the right moment, like an angel brushed her wings over you and wrapped herself in love around you when you most needed it.
Yes, I believe in angels..
Last night, I received news..that it was just a matter of time before my mother would be passing on from this world...I live very away and can't get to see her but I know the angels will carry my prayers on wings..and kiss her as gently as I would if I could be there with her.
My mother is my first love.
Mr. Little is completely back to his normal self..he is such a dear little cat.
Can I speak a little dutch...if you could hear me..smiles..you would laugh at my dutch..I could not roll a rrrr if I tried and watched many a smile from Mario and his fathers face..in my attempts.
I think there are like 5 sounds in the dutch language that are in not in the English language..but if any of you have ever listened to a Newfoundlander talk..you know..that there are many words that have different meanings..poor hubby when we went to Newfoundland for our honeymoon..had me interpreting Newfoundlandize all the while we were there..but the one language that is in all languages is the language of the heart and a hug.
Enjoy.. and Thank you..hope something will be able to be used in creating your beautiful memories..
