LEAVING FOR VINCE

Hi Everyone!
I will be leaving tomorrow for my brother's house. I know so many of you have been sending healing energy and prayers. I know that this circle of healing love has helped, however, sometimes things are just out of our hands. Vince is failing and I need to be there with him. Mike will drive me to Grants Pass, OR. where we will meet my mom and from there take off for Sacramento, CA. I will have my laptop and my brother's computer so I will still be blogging as much as I can. I couldn't go through this without all of you, my dear and wonderful friends.
Here is a photo of me and Vince last year.

I still have obligations that must be kept. Sooooo I am taking my birthday gourd with me and I will still have the drawing for the lucky birthday winner. I must keep some normalcy and giving seems to be how I can do this. Also I have so many comments this month that I am announcing two monthly comment winners. You know the monthly free bead thing. Like I say who doesn't like free beads????
I am off to pack my bags and some beading supplies.

Bead with Honor and Integrity

  1. Nicole....please have a safe trip. My thoughts and prayers are with you and especially with Vince during this time. I don't think there are ever any words that can truly express what our hearts want to say at times like this. Vince is in my prayer circle and those prayers won't stop.

    Hugs,
    Regi

  5. Nicole,

    My heart is filled with compassion and wishes of strength and courage for you and your family. If I were there I'd be bringing you hot tea and lots of healthy food to nourish you and of course offer a shoulder when you need one.

    If there is anything I can do - let me know.

    Until then you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Blessings to you on your journey West - Julie
