Auld Lang Syne

 "Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? Should old acquaintance be forgot and days of auld lang syne? For auld lang syne my dear.... For auld lang syne....We'll take a cup of kindness yet... For auld lang syne." 

Have you ever thought to yourself just how special those people are that you encounter along  life's path and the great impact they  have on you? 
Well.......Tina Wright is one of those people. Today is a sad day. Today she will be taken off her feeding tube and all her drips except her morphine and let nature takes it's course. She has been battling colon can cancer for a few months now but the inevitable has approached and now we wait.  I sit here and not sure what else to say but I will never forget her, she was a true artist, friend and a brave soul.  She touched many people's lives and continue's to do.  My intention was to start my blog off in an auspicious tone this year  but I felt it necessary to pay a tribute to this kind woman and she will be forever embedded in my mind, heart and soul!
I love you Tina!
