Happy New Year ..

Hello my dear friends,

I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year.

May 2013 bring you health, happiness and everything you wish for.

My New Years day is bittersweet.

 It is the beginning of a new year that will hopefully be better than the last one because one year ago today my Mum lost her battle after being very ill ~ it still feels like it happened yesterday.
You are so very missed ~ I love you Dickie!


I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful day,

Karen B.


  1. I am so very sorry. I totally agree...it seems unbelievable doesn't it? It has just been a year since I lost my Mom and on Jan. 13 a year since my dad passed too....so very terrible...a year of hell. Dianntha

  2. Hi Karen.
    I am so sorry that you lost your Mom ~ as fast as this year has passed, it must seem like it just happened. Everyone tells me that losing your Mom leaves a big hole in your heart. My mom lives with us, will be 96 in Feb., and I have watched her age and become so much more frail this past year. I cannot imagine life without her and am blessed to still have her with me.
    I hope your memories will help keep your Mom alive in your heart and will bring smiles to your face without the ache in your heart.
    Happy New Year, Karen.

  3. I'm so sorry Karen, the first year is always the hardest, it was awful when I lost my Dad. The pain and loss are still so fresh, and getting through the first holidays and family events is so tough. It will get better, and you'll have forever the memories that will help see you through. God Bless You, Laurie

  4. I hope that this new year will bring you happiness again. I lost my mum a year ago as well, just before Christmas, makes it hard to cope with all the festivities, doesn't it? I wish you all the very best for 2013, Karen, and thank you so very much for inspiring us with your wonderful creations on your beautiful blog during 2012. xx

  5. Oh Karen, bless your heart. It's so hard to loose our mama's isn't it? I can still hear and feel mine near me after almost three years. I hope your new year is lovely...and full of peace and happiness. You've made a lovely impact on my world and I'm so glad you're part of the blogs I love!

  6. Siento mucho lo de tu mama...tiene que haber sido muy duro, ahora tienes que quedarte con su recuerdo y todo lo que con ella has vivido , eso te dará fuerzas para afrontar su ausencia, mucho besos
