My Dad...Mans Mils Papins


Today marks the day when my/our Beloved Dad/Papins passed on 41 years ago tonight...
Not a day goes by when I don't think of him...
It seems like yesterday...
How he would love to see his family grown...
Grandchildren growing in his adopted country...
and now Grandchildren...

I can just imagine it all!!!

Mans mils Papins...Es Tevu Milu...always remembered

Oh Dzintra,

I SO UNDERSTAND the feeling. My father and mother both passed within two weeks of each other 25 years ago, and I think of them often.

I LOVE YOUR LANGUAGE! It looks so beautiful!!!

Peace and beauty to you today dear one. Anita

Welcome To My World

Hello, my name is Dzintra Ingrid ... have been known as Ingrid and since our Sea Change I have started to use Dzintra ... pronounced without the D ... (but still known as Ingrid, I know, it's confusing ...)

Welcome to my world ... a journal of our Sea Change ... Mum to three wonderful children ... bringing up a daughter with a disability and seeing life through her eyes ... being a new Nanna ... photos ... inspiring quotes ... taking on a cookery course ... the odd recipe ... and trying to get some stitching done amongst all this ...
