What is special to me

What is special to me...... I was sitting trying to think of what I wanted to share today and this title just came to me.
I think in this day and age we are all so busy and involved with our day to day lives, that it is easy to forget what is special to me.

Sadly I lost her far to young at 64 of cancer , and for me a little of me went with her. I had a young family so I had to get on with my life. Even though I lost her early she was special and I still love and miss her even today over 20 years later.
My family is not big and we don't see each other much but they all hold a special place in my heart. I wish we were all together and had big happy christmas parties like the movies, but sadly that is not to be.
My own family is special to me in so many ways. I have been married for 33 yrs to Kevin who is a firefighter. We met and married very fast and have never looked back. We have had tough times but we always stuck by each other and we are looking into the future . In November he retires and we are hoping to really enjoy our later years.

We have two wonderful children Matthew and Natalie who are married and doing well. I am so proud of both of them, and only wish my parents could have seen how great they turned out.

My home is special as it is my little safe place, a place were I can be me and not worry. I love to be home and be able to craft and play with the cats lol. I am very lucky to live in a beautiful place with  open fields to look at. Its special as I was born in London so to live in the countryside is a dream come true.

My friends are special and also my online friends. My best friend is Sue who I have been friends with for over 20 years. We don't see each other much but I would always be there for her and I think she would be for me. I think of her more as a sister and she is the sort of special friend we only make rarely.
I am also lucky enough to have many many online friends such as Darian, April and Janie. New friends such as Emma from www, who is a lovely young lady that I chat to. She make me laugh and also sells fab wool by the way.

I also think my pets are special. I know I am that sad cat woman and I will stand up and own that lol. I have had 3 cats and all were special but one was the most special of them all. Her name was cefer and she was my constant companion for 16 years day and night. She died early this year and it totally broke my heart. I still miss her every day and even though I have another cat and my daughters kitten, its not the same. I hope I will get to see her again one day.

I think I could go on as when you sit and think you see how many special things you have in your life, I know I did. I would love to hear your special things very much.
