Hang in there Charlotte... There will be time for everything and if there isn't, well, that's OK too. Whatever it is you do, just breathe and enjoy. Settling your Mom in certainly takes priority right now - sending you refreshing thoughts! LindaSonia


Life's seasons ebb and flow. You are doing what needs to be done right now. Breathe easy and enjoy each moment.

You and your friends are saints. I am sure your mother knows this as well but it it always nice to receive that outside validation. Hang in there, and have a beautiful weekend.

Just catching up and reading about your Mom brought tears to my eyes. So wonderful she will be near and I can tell there will be many new memories to be made. . .

Hugs, Kim


We recently moved my 77 year old mother out of her her home of 36 years and into a more manageable condo. To say she loves it is an understatment. She is currently having the whole place painted in the colours she and I chose together. She is happy and we are so relieved to have her in a safer environment. I sincerely hope you will all feel the same.


You have been in my thoughts off and on all day today Charlotte, so I thought I'd just peep in, before heading off to bed. I'm glad to hear that you've so many wonderful people helping you and your mom through this transition.

The bookmark is lovely. Thank you.

I'm so glad things are moving along with getting your mom settled. All will be well. All will be well. Cat ^..^


Don't you worry about us! We're all thinking about you and your mom. It will be wonderful to have her so close. You will finish setting up her new home - and I want to see pictures as I'm sure it will be adorable. Best to you and your mom and your daughters!

You've been so busy with your Mom, I'm surprised you have time to create much less think creatively! The bookmark is a great idea, perfect for showcasing those snips of vintage lace and trim!~~XXOO, Beth
