Hello to 2012 and a little bean's celebration.....

Hello everyone.. hope you all had a great New Year's eve and that the new year will bring many good things to all my friends... Mum was on nights all during the new year and had a very busy new years eve with so many mixed emotions. From seeing a face full of smiles because a friendly face appeared just when it was needed.A laughing embarrassed face because someone had fallen after a small drinky to bring in the new year. So many calls that night but one that will stick in the mind.. Everyone outside and around celebrating the new Year and fireworks popping all around, but a very different one for one elderly couple couple with mum holding the hand of a very ill man and his very afraid wife while waiting for the ambulance that mum had just called. Theirs was going to be a new year with a very unwelcome start.. But they were both saying thank you for this small comfort.. A sobering thought.. we must so count our blessings.

Today is our Nicholas bean's 2nd birthday..
Happy Birthday great grandson bean..


Mum and dad couldn't get to see him today because of the silly thing called work but he got a nice package in the post from them and we send our love..


Sending love out to you all... Hugs GJ xxx

Life does seem to bring with it as many tears of sadness as of joy. We are so glad to be able to celebrate the start of a new one with you, GJ!

Purrs,
The Chans

PS: Our verification word is pugniati. It sounds like "the pugnacious one" doesn't it? A fighter like you, GJ!

Happy birthday to Nicholas! He's a cutie pie, a very handsome young boy.

Yes, we have to savour the good moments, the small blessings, because life can turn in an instant, leaving us challenged or bereft. There's a Zen (think it's Zen) parable about that, about a man being chased by tigers--he ends up hanging over the edge of a cliff with a tiger above him and a tiger below him. Then he spies a strawberry and picks it with one hand, and it's the best strawberry he's ever had. So we all need to appreciate the "strawberries" in our days, because we don't know when the "tigers" will eat us.

GJ, you are so lucky to have such a wonderful family! I think you make them all very happy with your fuzzy face. (Even though I shouldn't have "favorites"), you're my best friend.
Hugs, Mandu

What an emotionally wrenching job your mum has. We pray the old man pulled through the holidays. It is always so much more painful for the ones left behind when a love one is lost during this happy season.
And you look marvelous! So handsome! Just the picture of sweetness. Oh, we love you so!!!

Happy birthday to Nicholas! Lots happy birthday wishes comming your way.
