A Haven Of Peace And Love.
This hub is a follow up to yesterday's hub Golden Moments Of Wonder.
For those of you who haven't read it here's a small recap .
("I sit here I am waiting for Priscilla the new Fundraiser from Ty hafan to visit ;Ty hafan being our only children's hospice here in Wales and with whom I have set up a fund in Erin's name called :-'Erin Jones Friend Of Ty hafan'
We have already raised over £4,000 for these beautiful children and today we are getting our heads together to hold a concert in Erin's name.")
Yesterday was my first meeting with Ty hafan's new fundraiser Priscilla and it was one of those meetings where you know you are going to be great friends.
We have decided to organise a children's Fun Day plus concert in one ;Priscilla knows a singer/songwriter/guitarist who would be only too pleased to sing for free for charity.
Dai also knows a guitarist who is partially sighted who would also love to help out. Wed are hoping to hold this Funday at our local Rugby club .
At the moment I am awaiting a return call from them. Then it'll be facepaints and Bouncy Castle for the little ones or maybe for the big kids too lol ; why should it only be the little ones having fun. Mind you I think I'll stick to the face paints; might be very wise !!Ha ha!
When I first set up Erin's fund I wanted to organise everything on my own and Phil our retired fundraiser would be in the background just in case....................
However today I am so glad for any help and I think this is a sign that I have moved on and am happy to share my baby's fund with others. Plus it would have been a charity on a much smaller scale without this help.
Priscilla was very interested in my writing which has been a therapy for me too and asked permission to share my email address with others who have charity friend groups with Ty hafan. One lady in particular has lost her son and even though this was expected it makes it no easier!!To cut along story short this lady has her own blog and the thought is that if we get together we could help others and as you can guess I am sure (those of you who know me) I needed no asking twice here !!
It sure looks as if Erin's trust fund is one ripple in a much larger pond and I am looking forward to seeing what else can transpire from this.
I hope you will enjoy today's hub and wish to add her that even though the fund is in Erin's name I also write in the memory of my beautiful sister Val who so tragically passed over in 1999.
My two angels of love.
My song choice for today is Jahmene Douglas a wonderful young man with such a soulful voice and one of the sweetest smiles ever.
Many people knock these talent competitions like X Factor, Britain's Got Talent and many others. However I think we should stop and remember all the good that has come from these TV programmes.
I cannot name them all but to name simply a handful ; Leona Lewis , JLS, Susan Boyle, Paul Potts, James Arthur and one of the latest is this wonderful singer.
There are also so many others from various genre ;dancers, comedians, and I could go on and on here.
Dai is not a fan of these Talent Competitions ;his argument being that years ago singers/bands had to work their way up on their own e.g. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Status Quo etc.
However times have changed and it lifts my heart to see these people being given a chance!!Ok many simply fizzle out ;some simply do not put the work into it all ;their only real interest was to win the show. However balance it all out and I think this will speak for itself.
A haven of peace
a conjuring of soft colours
a myriad of shapes
adorning each wall
colours of sweet
than each disability
wheels in motion
a halo of love
To draw characters
in strong colours
heartbeats a magical compendium of life's wonders.
in one flowing motion
to light up
each eye ;
each pool of wondrous sight.
A garden of wonder
a garden of hope
nature's scents reborn
into each young heart.
A heartfelt wilderness
with beauty and wonder
with smiles and happiness
with eternal love and care.
to the awesome tunes
of sweet infant voices;
so bewitching !!
That shiver of emotion
hearts and souls.
A trickling stream
a splitter and a gurgle;
a flowing indication
shimmering new birth.
Flowing and weaving
around the soft pebbles of love;
God's fountain of love
in eternal flow.
United families gather strength
each soul supporting
in never ending measures.
for each life so short;
yet a life
so lived ;
cannot be measured
in the passing of years alone.
Each beautiful angel
way up in heaven;
compassion so apparent;
love ad care so evident
as they tenderly care for each babe
Babes gone too soon
in soft sweet warmth
of the angels up above
the angels of love.
only the good
Angels Of Love.
Rest sweetly my Angels Of Love.
Erin and Val
eternally in my heart;
happy and proud memories
keep you shining brightly
wrapped in glowing halos
I share and
I love you both with
passion and pride
from your homes way up high.
God Bless you both
My Sweet Angels Of Love.
Many More Fundraisers.
We are very grateful to being sponsored by our local taxi firm Robins Taxis and we wear our shirts with a true pride.
A very big thank you to Robin Davies.
Pink with black text for the girls.
Black with pink text for the boys.
Pink was Erin's favourite colour hence these shirts ; however Dai will not wear anything pink at all but I managed to persuade him to wear the black shirt with pink text.
I think he only gave in because it was for Erin's fund ha ha!!
Well I hope you all enjoyed this hub and I shall keep you all updated on the progress of your fun day and concert in one.
Remember if there is anything you can do to help someone it doesn't matter how small just do it and the rewards are wonderful!!!
Have a wonderful weekend and here's lots of love from my little corner of Wales.
