Blue times


We have had a rather distressing time of late. Our daughter has had a very painful miscarriage which ended in a visit and overnight stay in the hospital, and we have been caring for the rest of her family this past week.

It has been especially hard because she had a previous miscarriage last year.

They all went home this morning and I sat at my table with a comforting cup of tea, inside the quiet house, with my thoughts, and taking long , deep, breaths.

Oh Sally Anne, how heart-breaking. Blue is always so peaceful, isn't it? Still loving that quilt.

I looked at the photos before I read the text....and was thinking blues, blissful blues. And then I read your very sad news. Sending warm wishes to you all.

I came from Melissa's blog, I was scrolling down when I noticed the wall with the blue plates she blogged recently, and then I read the post. I'm really so sorry for your daughter (I presume not Melissa), and for blue times. You do wonderful work, I'll come back to enjoy it.
