Thank you kind people

Hello all, I just want to say a huge thank for all your lovely words and understanding regarding the content of my post on Friday and I would like to share the words Elaine left me:

People who mind don't matter and people who matter don't mind

Such a simple quote, yet it has so much meaning........I did check with Elaine that I could share and she tells me she had no idea of it's origin, so being of inquisitive nature it set me on a hunting expedition.

It appears to be attributed to Prerna Chikersal of India and I found this quote dated 1993 "I am Prerna Chikersal (16 y.o.) studying in Delhi Public School, R.K. Puram, I write all sorts of poems". I checked out the poems and wow, what talent !

Hi Brenda,

been catching up with your Blog as I have been away for the past couple of weeks. As always it is filled with the most gorgeous creations..

I know you have really not been well, and I am glad you can still do some crafting, as well it does help with coping with ill health e.c.t.

I agree with Elaine's quote, someone said that to me years ago and it is so true...blogging is fab as an exchange of idea's and meeting people with the same interests, but it does have to be kept in its place, and it should never be a pressure, we all started this because we wanted to, and enjoyed it, and it should stay that way!.....

I for one am just happy that you are still able to do some crafting and that we can still get to see your gorgeous creations....I am not worried that you may not be able to comment on mine or the fact you cant write screeds and screeds on your post!

Keep well, and sending big hugs

The box is amazing brenda, and don't worry about not commenting, we all understand. Even those of us with normal commitments (jobs, housework kiddies etc)sometimes find it difficult to fit in the blogging bit. Now Will is poorly, I am finding this part far harder, but at least he will gradually get betterer. Hugs and love to you and your family, thank them from all of us for helping you with something that you love. Hugs Heidi x

I know I will, love seeing your work. So big hug, Frea

Hi B!

Coincidentally I read that very same quote somewhere today and thought how true the saying was.

Hope you're keeping well.

Hi Brenda,
I've been catching up and have just read your blog from Friday and my heart goes out to you.
Sometimes we bloggers expect so much from each other when in fact what does it all matter in the great scheme of things.
Of course we love to see your work and love you to visit us but really, you must put yourself first in this.
Your health and being able to do what you enjoy doing is so much more important than leaving messages hear there and everywhere.
Continue to do what you love doing and know that we are thinking of you.
Sending much love and a HUGE (((HUG)))
