Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

Todays card is a very simple one that I made to thank some young girls that helped to make Henrys Midgestock so very special. One of the young ladies made loom bracelets on the day, selling them with all the proceeds adding to the pot. She also sent me an orange one in memory of was so kind. The other two sang the song from Frozen that everyone apart from me knows..but everyone told me how special it was. I thought it would be nice just to send them a little card to say thankyou.

To make the card I wrote out the word thankyou and then zentangled every letter. I then coloured one pattern orange and made some orange petal shapes  and made a flower. When I had finished the word, I scanned it and made 3 copies. I cut out the letters and added them to a card alongside the flower As I said it's a very simple card but I am pleased with the result.

I'm afraid that yesterday was much the same as the day before..ending with me in tears yet again. After I had blogged yesterday the doctor arrived. She needed to go through the same stuff as the day before because she had received some paperwork from the same person doing the report. No matter how many times I go over what happened on that day, it doesn't make it any's like the worse case of deja vue. It is the stuff of my nightmares and now they want me to relive it in the daylight. There seems to be no escape. I also had a phonecall today which reminded me of other things from my past which need to be brought up and it seems I shall have to go through that as well. I'm of the mind lets just get it all out there and hope that it will help other people in similar circumstances. Too many times agencies are out there, not caring, not listening..just intent on having their boxes ticked. I pray to whoever is listening that things will change and that the agencies that failed me for so long will actually start to do things right. Another day to count my blessings. During all this Rave never left my side. I think that she has been voted in designated comfort cat of the week and is taking her job very

Well the coffee is now sitting by my until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting..
