Just when you need inspiring, 7 come along at once!

I don’t know much these days, but I do know that if love and kindness can get you well then I am already cured.  At a lovely family dinner on Sunday to tempt me out of my sinking mood, my amazing brother and his girlfriend gave me these beautiful original artworks.  They had handpicked them to lift my spirits and David then illustrated them.  I have uploaded them in the hope they give everyone else the encouragement and strength they will continue to give me over the months.
