TO HELP A FRIEND

Hello, everyone!
Blogging has turned into an important part of our lives. We all have different motifs and  necessities to keep doing it... During that journey we make discoveries - about the world, about the others, about ourselves. When we share, we trust each other and it's so thrilling to feel a support and understanding from someone, you have never seen, but the mutual contact with whom brings you joy and makes you feel good!
I am sure you'll agree with me that one of the most beautiful sides of blogging is finding new friends. I haven't  expected that, but today I am happy to say  that I met several special persons, who became very dear to my heart! One of them is Gretel Parker.
Perhaps some of you know her and others - don't. She's a wonderful, sincere, warm-hearted  person, a talented illustrator and a needle felt master. I love her very much! She was the first one to follow my blog and thus encouraged me -  more than 3 years ago. I have one of her beautiful books, sent together with lots of sweet gifts.
Unfortuntely, right now,  Gretel is passing through a very sad and hard period of her life....
Something that could happen to everyone of us and those who have had such an experience know how much it hurts and how many sweet cares one needs to recover...
Gretel has a lot of friends who, as you see, try to ease her pain. (Thank you, Jessie and Charlotte!)
I dare to hope that some of you can help her, too!...

THANK YOU!!!

  2. Blogging is amazing isn't it? The connections and friendships that are made and we may never meet in real life........
    Gretel is treading a very rocky road at the moment and needs all our help, I have donated already and hope more people get on board and help out.
    Your words say it all, thanks for sharing about our talented friend.......

    1. Thank you, Claire! I'm also amazed at how people from different corners of the world connect in such a moment - emotionally before all! I think of Gretel every day, as I'm sure you do, too! And "jump" from time to time to see how much money is being raised... And then I fill up with hope!:)
