When you're wishing for this...

And this is the probability after viewing the forecast for tomorrow I'll be patient and not complain about the delayed arrival of Spring.

I'm most grateful though not for the weather per say but after receiving a phone call last week (you know the kind you never want to get) from where my daughter lives, thousands of miles away, that she was in an accident at work. She has suffered a broken back and after the implant of two rods and five screws she is up and about. She can walk and though it will be a long and trying recuperation she has been blessed...
I booked a flight as soon as I could and rushed to her side for as you know that's what we Mothers do...

Thank you so much to the surgeon, the nurses, Justine and her friends for watching over her.

Delayed by a day returning home by you guessed it the weather I'm home now and hoping to return to a some what normal routine.

So I'll leave you with wishes for Spring soon to fill our hearts and homes...


  1. What a frightening and worrying time for you all!! I am so glad your daughter is now up and about and I am sure she will go from strength to strength. Here is to happier days ahead....:)

  2. Oh, prayers for your daughter's recovery and so glad that she is okay. Lovely photos. Hope it warms up for you soon!

  3. It was wonderful that you could be with your daughter during this difficult time. mothers never cease to worry about their children. We will all be welcoming spring this year with arms wide open.

  10. Susan I am so thankful your daughter is recovering. How scary this must have been for you. Prayers for you and your daughter.

  11. Oh Susan what a dreadful thing to happen! I've been away from the computer for a couple of months and I missed this post, right in your hour of need. So thankful that she is up and walking. Poor girl, but she will no doubt go from strength to strength now and she has a lovely Mum on her side. So so true that they remain our babies no matter how old they are and we worry for them. Thank goodness you were able to travel to be with her, it must have been a terrifying journey to get there thinking all sorts. Nevertheless she is on the mend....terrific news.

    Huggings to you Susan,
