Team TLC and Romano Duo Christmas 2017

December 25 2017:

Shhhhh …. They are still sleeping and I’m savoring a yummy piping hot winter blend coffee and a chocolate frosted gluten free donut.

I was up late making rather merry …. Poring over and combing through a special proof book to ensure corrections only have to be made once! I hope that counts as a Christmas present since it’s all I’ve been immersed in for a while!

Merry Christmas …. And an abundance of joy and love to you all.

Team TLC Christmas 2017 12.25.17

Most useful and much needed gift!! Thank you Romano Duo!

We have quite the walk from where the car is parked to our cozy little place. I buy spring water from a tank, filling 3 gallon jugs, and I’ve been using a broken cart with one wheel missing to haul them inside! No more!!

Got to use this sweet cart last night on a water run. WOW!! So much better and easier!

Gift with the most beautiful energy, sound, and vibration …. Om mani padme …. It has a beautiful high tone … Thank you Romano Duo!!! xoxo

Tibetan Singing Bowl #1

Gift I had such an inspired and wonderful time creating. Made for The Romano Duo … xoxo

I love creating with recycled items! Grocery bag handle for hanging, crumpled packing paper wrapped around a thick piece of cardboard that was inside of a new wall calendar.

Poem written by me, glass stones, sun and hearts of silver and gold beads, three dragonflies with the letters T,L,C, and flower of dark green pearl beads and blue crystal bead, and yarn grass. Lastly a heart prayer box locket with a tiny gold heart in it. (Team TLC colors are blue and green.)

May These Words

This I write to
to express the
gratitude that
is ever more
within me for
the depth of kindness
and love shared with
me and this little
family throughout
the years.

You two,
The Romano Duo,
Bless us more
than can be
expressed through
these mere words.

It is my deepest
desire that one
day soon the wounds
of the past are healed
so as to allow me to fully
spread the wings
of glory I mistakenly
believe were
long ago clipped.

And when this
wondrous day is upon
us it is my dream
to show you with
more than words how
much your support
and love have meant
to me.

Until this day
may these words
forever more ring
true to your ears
and settle upon your
heart with love
and light and
comforting warmth.

I Thank You Both.
I am Grateful for You Both.
I Love You Both.

Camilla 💖
xoxo

Finally finished Lillian’s hand made Christmas gift! Just need to add string for hanging! xoxo

Dearest Lillian

May you always live with an open and light heart,
May you always live knowing you are unconditionally loved,
May you always live knowing and allowing peace, joy, and abundance.

May good fortune smile and shower upon you,
May joy stalk you and be hidden in every nook and cranny of your life,
May peace float always above you as a puffy cloud in a bright blue sky.

May the shadows ever be there to bring delight and laughter to your world,
May the suns rays ever bring a smile and tender joy to your life,
May you never lose your sense of wonder with all things that most have lost.

May you always hear the sweet sound of the magical bell.

May you always know, even after I am long done with this body,
that my love for you is eternal and never ending.

I love you,
Camilla 💖
Mother

Lillian in Sun Fall Break 2015

Here’s the back of book blurb:

Welcome to the radiant imagination of Lillian Darnell, a wonderful and unique human being, the kind who comes around only once in every 56,000 births, as she is missing the short arm of her 18th chromosome.

Leave this reality behind and enter enchanted lands awash in mysteries, happy endings, adventures, and inspiration. Come within and discover heartwarming and beautiful tales, woven with love and magic, brought forth from the imagination of a young woman with a different perspective. Lose yourself in wondrous adventures as you follow courageous, enchanting characters, kind animals and plant life, and graceful Mother Nature.

The delightful tales, legends, and poems within these pages were written by Lillian Darnell between the ages of four and fifteen. The stories and poems are mostly edited for spelling and grammar, yet the bulk of the stories remain as she originally wrote and published them to include a few grammatical errors and made up words.

Will a girls dream of becoming a princess come true?

What does love have to do with rainbows and why do we sometimes see double rainbows?

What do roses have to do with fairies and why don’t we see fairies during the day?

How can sad, mischievous, fearful animals help humans feel emotions?

How did the world come to have color?

What really happens in a day of the life of a young whale who lives in the Wooden Ocean?

Why should you never sleep with bears?

“You can’t help but feel happy and be inspired while reading this book. Lillian’s stories jump straight out of her heart and onto the pages in an authentic, innocent, and loving way. The world needs more positivity and happiness and her stories are bursting with both. Thank you Lillian!” -G. Brian Benson – Award-winning and best-selling author, actor and TEDx speaker.

“Let your imagination be taken away with Lillian Darnell’s writings and allow yourself to be transported to places where anything is possible with love, joy and a touch of inspiration. This collection is born from a young woman with a unique perspective on how our world could be – immerse yourself and come, see the world through Lillian’s eyes.” -Dr Veronica Wain – Award winning filmmaker, Academic, Author, Disability Advocate
