The Bad and the Good...


Hello everyone,


Just a quick post to ask for your prayers and thoughts for my friend Ami Starsong.  Last night the gorgeous barn that her and Dan recently moved from, and next door to, caught fire. I think the damage is pretty extensive and the chaps that lived there are now staying with Ami and Dan whilst insurance  etc gets under way. The ten fire engines did manage to prevent the fire spreading to Ami's farm house but...... What a terrible thing to happen , an absolute disaster all round. Our thoughts are with you Ami and I am sure everyone feels like John and I do that we wish we were near enough to provide real help.



On a better note I would like to say how pleased I am for Esmay and the Duke. I have never been so affected by a post as much as when Esmay talked about her first baby boy. Yesterday's post letting us all know about the safe arrival of their daughter affected me just as much. I wish them so much happiness


Congratulations!!!


What a roller coaster week, thinking of you all

much love

  3. Hi Jan, I am so sorry about the fire, but I am glad that nobody seems to be hurt. Sending positive thoughts to Ami and Dan.
    And the news about Esmay's baby girl is so awesome! When I read about them today it absolutely made my day. The story about Michael was so heartbreaking and I am so happy that Esmay has her greatest wish fulfilled now!

    I was thrilled to see EsMay's post yesterday. Blogland. Is certainly booming with new babies the last couple of months. So exciting!

  10. I'm with you Jan...I so wish I lived close to Ami and Dan so that I could come help them. They sure don't need more stress in their lives! Hopefully the insurance company will step up quickly so they can get started on cleanup and rebuilding. Sending lots of prayers, positive energy and peaceful thoughts.

    So thrilled for all our new babies in blogland!

    Hugs and Blessings...

  15. Hi Everyone, I am not going to reply to all of you separately as I want to say the same thing to everyone. Ami is not feeling great today but is keeping her chin up and looking after her neighbours in their time of need. We can only hope that the insurance company gets a move on.
    I think Esmay's news has cheered us all, hope they will be so happy now

    love to all of you
    Jan,xx
