Grateful

Here in Australia we are all just so grateful to have our families and friends safe. Our whole nation is in mourning with the families in America who sadly are going through the most difficult times of their lives. Nothing could prepare anyone for this. Just so much sadness.  We send our love to everyone involved.
Today because we are all so sad I thought I would share with you some beautiful flowers I photographed in my mum’s garden on Sunday. Somehow the busyness and bustle of Christmas has been placed on the back burner while we all battle to take in the horror of these last few days.

May these beautiful children and their dedicated teachers rest in peace.

A beautiful post for such a sad event that none of us are able to wrap our heads around.

Apparently I no nothing about weather in Australia. I would of never dreamed this is what it looked like this time of year. Absolutely beautiful.

Beautiful photos, hydrangeas are my favorites. We too are still reeling from the horrible tragedy. Prayers for those families and friends left behind are being lifted up all around the world. Twenty six angels were ushered into heaven Friday.
Blessings to you from Texas
