Winter has been in my heart this week with the sudden death of my beloved Gran!
She died peacefully in her sleep on Monday night.
Dear Gran sparkled, her soul will be safe, warm and at peace now.
I carry all my gran's love in my heart, she meant so much to me, how truly blessed I am to have had such a great Gran.

Now you may remember this piece below I posted a few months back when my dad was diagnosed with lung cancer.

I have now finished this canvas and also have great news about dad who is doing really well and needs no more chemo, he is clear from any cancer and is building his strength every day now.
We feel Gran waited to hear dad was going to be well before slipping away peacefully.

The 27th of February is my son Liam's 13th Birthday so I also want to wish him a wonderful day and year ahead!

Happy Birthday Pea!!!

Blessings to all

Wonderful canvas to put all your emotions into and work them out. So sorry about your Gran, it's never easy when we lose those special people we love so much. Glad you dad is on the mend and doing well at getting stronger. Amazing what doctors are doing today for cancers. My heart is with you, sending big hugs to you. xox
