To Love and Be Loved is the greatest joy on Earth.



Thanks for all your lovely comments on my work.
We've had a couple of rough weeks in the Underwood house, but its on the mend now.
You often hear people say, you don't know what you have until you loose it. (or nearly loose it).
The Lord and the universe was looking down on us recently. My eldest boy Liam,
That's him on the right towering over his Dad.

was involved in a tragic accident a couple of weeks ago now, in my car. He had worked a days work and was heading to a volley ball match, when he collided with a motorbike at a traffic light intersection near home. Unfortunately the young motorcyclist was killed and my heart goes out to his Mother and the rest of his family and friends. We all had an agonising few days waiting to hear the out come of the accident and praise God, Liam was not at fault. This did make his burden a little lighter but it is still the loss of a young life and something he will have to live with for the rest of his life. We are keeping a close eye on our big boy and as much as he drives me absolutely batty at times my heart goes out to him too. It was hard to see him in the ambulance and in the emergency ward, a big wake up call for all of us. He is physically fine, thank goodness.
So give you kids a big hug and thank the universe for everything you have.

Sending love your way
Audrey. x
