A poignant reminder by Detrice to cherish those we love in our lives.

Catherine has been resting on her new sofa, and dreaming of cars, after her first chemo session last week. Sending oodles of healing thoughts your way Catherine.

Finally this week, a warm welcome back to the blogosphere to Lori – we’ve missed you!

Until next week,

Yours with love
