Week 8 - 21st February

I am soooo tired today.  We had a working bee earlier at the church ready for our big week-end coming up.

I only stitched on Crabby Crush this week - 10.50 hrs.  I did finish off Page 5 and make a start on page 6.  I will do another 20 rows before returning to Leaf.  Crabby Crush now has a beautiful puffed sleeve.
 The artwork of Hannah Lynn traslated so well to cross stitch.
Priceless Moment
Watching a young man yesterday who has given his life to the Lord  be baptised. Such a special moment.  His lovely wife is due to give birth any day to their second child. Is was a thrill to see someone so young dedicate their life to God.

Bittersweet Moment
I guess it could only be described as that.  Last night DD rang on Skype and we talked for nearly 2 hrs. Just watching that beautiful face - I wanted to reach out and touch her  and hold her.  The tears streamed down my face but I didn't let her know I was crying. She has been gone nearly 12 months now and I miss her soooooo much. I love you my child you are flesh of my flesh  and you are a part of me that can never ever be replaced or forgotten as long as I live.
