It's been one of the saddest weeks.

As we travel through life's journey we experience the joy of seeing our young ones growing up and with that sometimes we experience the pain that life can throw at them.

Being a home schooling / stay at home mum, kids came to our place every school holiday, often their parents worked. These kids have a special place in my heart.

I've enjoyed seeing them all grow up and was proud as punch when one of the lads came around to tell us the good news that he was going to be a dad.
He was excited, thrilled and ecstatically happy. The two of them had such lovely plans for the future.



Of course I had to start a quilt for this special baby.


I had a feeling it was going to be a girl so stopped working on the blue quilt.

Another friend shared she was going to be a grandma and then the pink quilt said it was for her baby  - I do find that often the quilt knows who it is meant to go to.
Then the two mothers to be had their scans which confirmed two baby girls to sew for. SQUEAL girls stuff can just be soo pretty



Sadly this Friday our family attended the most sorrowful funeral of all. The young fellows partner, a mother to be and carrying their precious baby girl died totally unexpectedly and leaving behind a heart broken young man. She was only 25.

His world has been shattered and he now has to walk though one of the hardest journeys in life, something no parent ever wants their child to have to go through.

Life is just not fair and can be very hard going at times.

  1. My friend Nan ( 79 ) was telling me this exact same story yesterday. Her daughter Kim and family were across from Australia for the funeral - it has to be the same one.( the detail were the same but I heard she had been in hospital a few days earlier and got sent home? ) What a tragedy.

  3. Hugs to you all Leanne , as you try to accept what has happened, and be there with love and support for the young man and his extended family. We love, and at some stage, we will grieve, but this is way too young to deal with life's sadness in such a devastating way. Many loving thoughts with you all right now, Jean.

  13. This is so sad, and terrible for the young man and the whole family. To die at a time which should be full of hope; it's tragic.
