Mostly life just rolls along. Sure some weeks are more eventful than others but then that's the way life is.
Well this week has been one of  THOSE weeks.  A week that catches you unawares and throws you the most unexpected surprises.

 This boy, see his playful happy face, has had one of the toughest weeks of his young life. What seemed like just a cold at first became so much more when three days ago he was unable to walk.It's been a frightening few days. His flu turned into myalgia, inflamation of the muscles. Tonight he walked, ever so slowly, for the first time without support. My sweet, gentle, kind hearted son is recovering.
I'm waiting for the smile to return.

Tonight Brandin e-mailed me to say I might want to check out the blog
Here I am thinking how wonderful it was to see my layout on WP FB page and what a thrill that was.
Well what a shock I got when I checked in. OMG Brandin and all the gang at Webster's I was so overwhelmed. Maybe it is the lack of sleep over the last few days, or the shock, or maybe it was just the warmth of Brandin's words, or all three, I burst into tears. I'm not really the sort of person who does that easily but Brandin's post just tugged my heart. She has a way of making you feel a part of her family. That's one of the things I loved about Webster's from the beginning. Beside the fact that WP product is so amazingly beautiful. I am so truly honoured. Brandin for your kindness and thoughtful words I am humbled.
Oh and I did have a laugh 'cause I had never really publically mentioned that I went for the WP DT and there it is for all the world to see.

Well for someone who doesn't write much about myself. lol You just got an earful! lol. Thanks for listening.    I can't imagine what the rest of the week is going to be like!


  1. Hi Jeni! Oh I wish you and your son all the very best. How frightening...I can only imagine what it must be like. I hope a speedy recovery heart goes out to you from mum to mum...:o)Absolutely happy to see you at Websters tonight. You deserve it and it was indeed a lovely thing by Brandin to do. Your work is stunning...Take good care, Nadia.

  2. I looked at your blog today because of the Webster's Pages blog. I am sending a prayer for your son and your family. I know what it is to have medical stuff take over your life. And OMG I fell in love with your pages. I had to watch your slide show twice. Thanks so much for sharing your vision of how photos can be used in such great ways. I will come and read more of your story as it unfolds. Theresa
