in the MIX...

my Mum's Swedish and my Dad's Danish...
I made a new Flag for them...
Danes and Swedes have a LOVE-HATE relationship...a little like the Brits and the French...
My parents are travellers...always have been...this year has been a hard year for them, as health reasons have haulted either of them being able to just pack up and leave.
My Dad goes today to his specialist to see WHEN and IF his operation will be soon...it's been too long of a wait. I really do feel for him.
Mum, well she needs a new hip...and she's seeing a specialist tomorrow.
They built this house 10 years ago...it's warm and welcoming...I know they love being there...but they need a rest, it's been a long Winter.
So...sending them this Bird of Hope and Travel...praying that their health gets better and that they can use those wings to fly again.

I fell asleep on the Sofa shortly after finishing this last night...so I will continue this evening to visit you all.
Have a great day...we're getting a snow storm today! YAY!!!!
Char,ON.

Hello!
What a good idea to make them a united flag. :o)

And I do believe the bird is going to be a very sweet messenger...

A big HUG and I hope us being here for you (wherever that is, Cyberspace, Canada, Italy, England,...) is in some way helpful to you! I know it's really hard to be so far away when your parents are not 100 %...

*HEARTS!*

Valentina, this is pure delight! It is art that is heartfelt, and that is the very best kind. Your parents will be thrilled with it, I'm sure, and it will give them wings again. All my thoughts and prayers to them to get better soon.
