Frame from 7 gypsies

I just love this frame that I found in a shop. It is from 7 gypsies and is just perfect to display atc'n in! I found some of the few I still have not traded away an displayed them in this beautiful frame.

While searching for some documents that have mysteriously disapeared from my computer I found some old pictures from 2002. This is actually the first time I could look at them without crying.

This is from the intensive neonatal ward. I had just given bith to a babygirl, 6 and a half week too early. She was very sick for several weeks and the only thing we could do was to pray to God to give her strengh and heal her. All those machines surrounding here kept her alive. We did not know if we where going to plan a funeral or if she could survive. But then on our blackest days when all hope seem to have gone a miracle happened. She quickly started to breathe on her own and started to get better and better for every minute and hour.
After three and a half week we could take her home for the firste night and she soon  started to eat and became shubby and happy! She has since then been a light in our lives, like our other daughter also is. We  feel so blessed to have two wonderful girls!

Now she is soon turning eight! She is tall, strong, very wise and strongwilled and we feel how the memories from all those years ago slowely is starting to heal. It has taken time, but things like that always will take time.
Soon they are just memories and pictures and they don't stir up floods of tears like they did before.

    I love this frame and can see it hanging on a wall attracting interest.
