Flowers for Leontien

The press love to report in a negative way about the internet and online 'communities'.
A shame they don't report on positive things like this.

A 'blogging' friend e-mailed me recently, and asked if I would support and participate in this event.

I don't know, or have never met Leontien Vandelaar
but that doesn't matter.
Leontien is fighting a battle. A very personal battle.
A battle I hope I never have to fight.

I hope she wins

  6. A beautiful photo and a very moving story. It is beyond me that, given how short our lives are anyway, there has to be so much suffering in this world. I do hope Leontien wins her battle.

    I enjoyed your last post, the lines that resonated with me most were 'Mum didn't have to go to work to help dad make ends meet., because we didn't need to keep up with the Jones's.' I have long believed that to be the real reason so many women 'have' to work.

  7. O yes....Leontien need this !!!..love for all the blog girls who give her flowers today !!...glad you did this....love Ria...xxx...

  8. Lovely image Kieth and very fitting words.
