vendredi fleurs

{image from here}

It has been a sad week and I think that the recent tragedy in New Zealand has taught us all a lesson in that, life is precious and we should make the best of every day and not take forgranted those that are precious to us.

Wishing you all a fabulous Friday

  1. Dear Leeann

    Beautiful words and I only wish
    that the miners families could read
    the messages of sorrow expressed by so many bloggers all over the world - and more especially the ex pat kiwi's just like you who feel their dreadful sense of loss.
    hugs

  5. I totally agree with you... life is so precious, but unfortunately there's more people worrying with what they don't have then with they actually do have. The biggest gift we receive daily is our own life. being able to breathe is a blessing.

  7. Hi Leeann,

    It is an incredibly sad tragedy, almost made worse by the fact that recent situations like this have had happier endings. The families grief must be overwhelming and my thoughts are with them.

  9. Hi Leeann,

    Thanks for your lovely post... it has been all we have been thinking about the past week.
    Life is precious and seeing the miners who lost their lives ... the one that was only 17 and was meant to start work on the Monday and persuaded them to let him go down on the day before.
    Then the guy that was to be getting married in December... so very sad.
    Another was to be a Father soon, so very very sad.

    Have a lovely weekend

    Hugs to you
    Carolyn
