I am hoping that you are all well, it has been a while.

We are at the end of 2017, Imagine THAT! I don’t think any year will pass me by without making me think that it went by waaaaay too fast! Where does the time go?

The last time I did a post like this was in FEBRUARY ( I am quite embarrassed actually) and seeing as we are at the end of the year, I figure taking stock for the whole year makes more sense.

Its that time of the year when we bore readers with recollections from the past year and our plans for the new year.

 I have to say though, documenting these achievements goes a long way into appreciating yourself. The new year plans make for a great accountability system especially if you are like me and disappointing yourself scares the hell out of you.

I guess lets take this as a taking stock and new year plans combined kind of post, with some 2016 photo memories.

Happy reading



How time flies.

In a few days, we will be having her memorial service.

A full year has gone by…another one.

Yet another year that we wish would have been spent in her presence.

Another year of hows and what ifs. A year of tears and laughter. Another year of sadness and happiness. All the motions that we only wish we would have gone through with her by our side.

I have not cried in a while. I forced myself to forget but also, apparently, it does get better in time.

Tis’ the season to be happy and make Merry,

and what a wonderful year it has been thus far .

Praying that 2016 will be the onset of a great and prosperous new chapter for us all.

That we may flourish in all its goodness and greatness and know nothing but joy, happiness, love and laughter.

That even when things may seem to be going horribly wrong, we only see the positive in them.

I wish you all a very merry CHRISTMAS and a FRUITFUL NEW YEAR!

See you on the other side!




So I Know I said I wouldn’t write again soon but I couldn’t help myself but get back on here on Christmas day and officially wish you a merry Christmas. *Yes all the other wishes were unofficial*

But also, It is just the Spirit that Christmas brings with it. I was set on being miserable today because I am not celebrating Christs birth with my family and that was such a downer for me. UNTIL! I woke up this morning and the sun was shinning brighter than ever. The energy I got from that is unexplainable ,but I can tell you this, it has made me pick out my finest dress and my favorite Lipstick and I am ready to have such a grand grand day in memory of Christ!!! Oh how so wonderful He is!! and mummy too…remember the sun thing?Lol

So now , officially,

I BARBARA , would love to wish you all a Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas filled with nothing but love, Joy and happiness that surpasses all bounds. That as you enjoy and make merry you may also remember the greatness of our Lord and thank him for the Wonderful year that was. That we acknowledge that we have had bad days but it is not a bad life at all. May He be truly Praised!! and then, after that, EAT EAT EAT until you” cannot “any more!!!


GOD JUL To my readers in Sweden.

I love you all,

B. xxx
