And of course as we enter yet another year, there is time for reflection. Remembering the years that have past. I'd like to share with you about a very special lady. One who filled a hole in our lives.
She was my teacher, friend, and soul mate in treasure hunting for over 30 years. I used to tag along with her to yard sales, antique shops and all kinds of second hand stores. She loved paper weights, and she also loved vases. She had quite a collection of both. I have several of her paper weights displayed in my home.
But more importantly, she loved my children and was a huge part of their growing up years.
My own mom passed away many years ago, before my children were born. She stepped in as an auntie, but more like a grandmother. Her generous and loving spirit filled us with her unconditional love.
Very rarely does someone come into your life that has left such a deep imprint on your heart. I am most thankful to have known and loved her.
Before the year is out, take time to tell someone you love them. For some people, it can be a very lonely time of year.
