"seeking serenity" when looking at your drawing is what first came to ♥ aches for you and your fathers mind is slowly starting to wander and just the mere thought is frightening...we have had a few who have passed on in the last couple years and watching life unfold before our eyes has left anger as yours and frustrations and answers to remain unknown...all we can do is accept what is and embrace what we have before us...minutes and moments we long to one can pass judgement on you for your whirlwind of emotions...feel never guilty as you need to also nourish your body and soul just as you are is not an easy road you are traveling down...i wish you all my best and send forth bright blessing to you all~

You are welcome

came to mind. So sorry to hear of your troubles, being a carer is so hard when it involves a loved one.

Claire I feel so for you and your family. You are an amazing support to your sister and I am sure she feels the strength you give her. You are a lovely sister.

When I saw your picture I just thought 'underwater encounter'. Beautiful picture, as ever, I hope your title comes to you soon.

My labels are brilliant and finish off my parcel perfectly, so thank you for my logo, You're a star lady xxx


Bless you Claire,
You are such a lovely caring lady and your sister and brother-in-law are lucky to have you ever week.
It is one of the hardest things like you say to see an illness eat up the person you once knew. It's like watchingit happen through frosted glass, each piece that gets clearer is a piece more lost. I want to thank you for all your kind words and help with my step dad, i know i have to make that trip too. You told me it needs to to be done, so get and do it lol
If you need me you know i'm here for you lovely lady x
The picture is cute. Crap at thinking of names lol sorry
With love, see you soon

Claire what a honest post full of love and caring for your sister and brother in law. Live wasn't easy when my father was suffering of demention but he lived for more than 80 years. So it must be very hard to see someone vanishing into a world we don't experience. I wish you a lot of strenght. A name for your new work could be Deep friendship.

I'm very thankful to the author for posting such an amazing post.


"And Then..."

This picture seems to be one friend telling a fascinating story to another. The kind of story that you want to never end because it is just so good.
Blessings on you as you help your sister! I know that, on some level, your brother-in-law senses your love.

'Trust me'.

Wishing you and your family strength.

We all need 'other worlds', don't feel bad, it's what gives us the strength to deal with the real world.

It's not the length of time that's important, but what truly matters is what with do with the time that is given to us.
Bless your caring soul...



So sorry to hear that your family is going through this - your sister does sound amazing!

Sometimes a bit of fantasy & frippery is good for the soul.

I'd entitle yoyur new picture "Oceans of Friendship".

Hello Claire

Have been meaning to come by for ages.

Sorry to read about what is happening with your brother-in-law. I read things like that and just don't know what to say. I don't know how I would cope. I just don't know.

I need to work out how to 'subscribe' to your blog.

Hey, I have an iPhone - have a mac and love Apple things. I shall get your app and write a lovely review!

Your things are selling here, I will be doing another order soon.

Love Charlotte

Oh and I meant to think of a name... but I can't... um...

Hello Water Fairy



Thinking of you and your family. Lovely underwater picture. I would name it 'don't be afraid'.x
