‘A Sun Kissed Day’

On my birthday I received a card from a friend -it was full of lovely news – and describing a beautiful sunny spring day – she used the phrase – ‘the day felt like one of God’s son kissed days – that struck a chord in me and has stayed with me since. We speak…

‘Feeling Blessed’

Today I celebrate my birthday – and I’m conscious – as I read birthday wishes – and as I open presents – that the greatest of all gifts I can have – is the gift of years. As I look back over the years – they are full – rich – lifechanging – and that…

‘Snow Delights’

Over the past days a friend – who recently came to the UK to live – has been posting pictures of snow – not just of wonderful snowy scenes – but of herself – enjoying not just the beauty she saw around her – but also of herself revelling in that snow – something that…

‘The True Value’

It’s interesting just how much we take for granted – until – suddenly that’s taken away – and we realise the true value of what we had. This morning I’m realising again just how valuable my health is – and how often I guess – I take it for granted . On Monday I was…

‘A Light-hearted Post’

Many people seem to be struggling during these long winter months – especially with all the restrictions that are in place – and so -as I sat to write my blog today I decided to be light hearted – to bring a little fun into the day – and maybe a little laughter – for…

‘The Solitary Seat’

I’m loving the village we now live in – so enjoying and appreciating the fact that I can walk straight out of the door into the quiet of the countryside – or simply take a short stroll through the village itself. As in so many places a bench sits in quiet solitude – inviting –…

‘Blessings On This Day’

Today is the day of the year when we traditionally wish every one ‘A Happy – or Blessed New Year’ – however – as I sit to write I am so very conscious of the importance of each day – and so in the light of that I want to wish everyone ‘A blessed –…

‘A Christmas Blessing For You’

I realised today that in a weeks time Christmas will be upon us – so of course I really need to send my Christmas greetings to you all now – as somehow – although it won’t be as busy this year – my mind will be elsewhere next week! For me there is no better…
