Letting the light in….

Pur place

Sometimes life seems to hit the ‘warp factor ten’ button and our ‘life plates’ are full with too much to deal with all in one go. I have not written anything for a few weeks now and that is always a sign that I am overloaded and the things that maintain my balance are getting lost.

There are many light filled energies nestling in my life garden and loving thoughts and care weave around them all. My heart knows that if I fill my head, heart and life with these thoughts then all my words and actions will flow forward from these loving energies and all will thrive.

My heart is full of love for……

My Mum and Dad and their safe harbour, loving support, understanding and jokes. So many evenings lately Mum has placed a hot meal in front of me, when I can barely keep my eyes open, as Dad gently asks how I am getting on. As I move on to my new home in October, (only fifteen minutes away by car), I will be but a heartbeat away. Bless my property developer friends Carl and Victoria for offering me a lovely new home. A bonus of this is that I can now care for their lovely dog Boris when they go away…happy days.

Jim, my earth angel, who stands like a rock as the seas have got stormy. His loving tenderness and thoughtful care are constant and the picture above shows one of our favourite spots where we curl up together to natter and giggle. Blessed are the moments he has stroked my hair, taken me by the hand and shown me hidden gardens, canal walks, secondhand shops full of treasures, steamy coffee shops, fairy lit restaurants and nature reserves. Close to tears one day, he noticed and got me driving the pitch roller at his local cricket club to distract me. Vans, tractors, diggers and now a ride on roller, I loved it. When he said ‘Lean on me, I am not going anywhere’….he means it.

My new workshop has windows and is flooded with light and looks out over the trees by the riverside. Jo, my sculptor friend, who pops in for tea and a catch-up (as I have only moved across the yard from the space we shared together) loves it. Ray, our yard manager, is a rich source of inspiration on woodworking, life and laughter. His templates are creating all sorts of wonderful wooden items. John and his son Chris, my old next door neighbours on the yard, kindly shared their work space with Jim and I last week, so we could re-vamp a metal desk project together. The banter was a joy and filthy dirty, but happy, Jim and I had a crash course in metal working. This fortuitous little episode is the spring board for our new salvage business, so Jim, his buddy Matt and I are now ‘JJM Salvage and Design’.

Roger, our loyal family friend of so many years, has kitted me out with every tool I could ever need, so whatever I go to make now, I have the right gear to hand. Bless him from the bottom of my heart, as I could not have made the workshop move without him.

The love, healing, care, support and laughter flowing from my treasured friends is the song that weaves through my days. I love you Chris, Emma, Tracey, Laura CS, Jo BB, Debs, Angie, Laura B, Peter and Wendy. Hugs for you all.

Love, light and cherished energies as we all flow forward together.

    Dearest Jane, bless your mum and dad, they are so loving. As are you. Still, I sense between the lines… Hold on. You are in my heart and in my prayers.

      Oh Maxi, bless you for your intuition, I have had a serious health scare, but am on the other side of it now…all is flowing again. You, my lovely, have just had a serious op. and you knew what was coming your way this time, because you have walked this path before. Hugs and so much healing love flowing to you, as you have been very much in my thoughts and prayers. xXx ❤

    Charming and touching post, Jane. The picture is warm, inviting and comforting, and Jim, your earth angel, is indeed a gift. It’s good to hear from you again and know you’re well and happy. Blessings, Jane.

    Nice to see you back Jane. I hear you, on life keeping us busy. It seems many of us have had more than our share of challenges these past few weeks (months). It makes me wonder if something is in the air, or planets? 🙂

    Regardless of our journey, we are never far from home, the evidence that we are loved……… ❤

    I had been wondering how you were and hoping all was well. It seems as though things have been tough but you have managed to fight your way through with the help of family and friends. I love the look of your cosy corner! May everything work out well for you dear Jane! Hugs and kisses, Clare xx ❤

    Time for you to reap back some of that lovely energy you so unconditionally give to others. You are special, admired, funny, clever and inspiring to us all, Jane.xxxxxx
