Seems like ages since I've last posted anything in here, but life and its convoluted 'surprises' didn't allow me to pursue my hobby in the last 2 weeks, or to enjoy visiting your blogs.

Right before Christmas, on the night of December 23rd, my Mum died.

She has been in the hospital for four days after having a stroke (on Dec. 19th) and her health got worse and worse, with numerous complications. It looked like her poor frail feeble body gave up on her. :(
Some of you know that in September she had cancer surgery, had most of the big tumour removed, together with her right eye and also had 2 skin grafts to cover the "hole".
We had to wait for three months to finally get the biopsy result and we were about to see the oncologist for prescribing a possible treatment. But three days after we've had those, she had the stroke and it was just too much for her body.


I just wanted to let you all know why I've been AWOL and to excuse myself for not commenting or emailing/replying much (if at all).

Also, I wanted to wish you all

A VERY Happy New Year, with good health, peace of mind, fantastic great moments with your dear ones and lots and lots of good luck.

Big hugs,

Hei Mada, imi pare bine sa te ''vad''! N-am mai indraznit sa-ti scriu, dar m-am gandit in fiecare zi la tine si am trecut pe aici sa vad daca ai scris ceva. In ca o data, imi pare rau pentru mama ta, dar Dumnezeu o sa-ti dea putere sa-ti revii.
Nu stiu ce sa-ti spun mai mult, mi-e teama sa nu spun ceva gresit, dar tare as vrea sa incerci sa ai grija de tine acum.
Iti doresc un an 2009 foarte, foarte bun si multa sanatate!
Te pup si ''vorbim'' la anul.

Milioane de scuze, n-am stiut ca mama ta s-a dus... Imi pare atat de rau de nici nu prea stiu ce sa spun. Of, Doamne, chiar de Craciun..Iti doresc multa-multa putere sa treci peste asta si daca vrei sa vorbesti cu cineva sunt aici. Te pup si din tot ce ti-am scris in mail ramane valabil ca iti urez un an nou bun si multa sanatate.

draga Mada

in prag de an nou, pentru ca urarile traditionale nu se mai potrivesc, iti spun o mantra de-a mea, care mi-a folosit si mie anul asta, sunt niste versuri ale lui Radu Gyr:
,,ca-nvins nu esti atunci cand sangeri,
nici daca ochii-n lacrimi ti-s
adevaratele infrangeri
sunt renuntarile la vis"

in anul care vine iti urez savisezi cat mai mult si sa se implineasca.
multa dragoste, J

Oh Mada I am so sorry to hear you have lost your Mum, losing anyone is bad enough but to lose her at Christmas makes it worse I feel. I hope you are coping as well as possible at this time, if it is any consolation she is out of pain and suffering, it is always hardest on those who are left behind, I hope you have some friends and family surrounding you, and if not, your blog pals are always here. I hope 2009 will be a good year for you, I will think of you tonight, I am going out to celebrate Hogmanay with my family and friends but know I will be thinking of you. Hugs. DawnM.x

Been thinking of you so much this past week Mada - Condolences to you and your family.

I guess the only comfort is knowing she isnt in pain any longer.

Have a happy New Year my friend and remember we are all here for you!

Although we have differences in culture, but do not want is that this view is the same and I like that!
