‘Behind The Scenes’

I shall be attending an annual camping event over this long bank holiday weekend – actually  it’s true I shall be attending and in fact working as a volunteer a lot of the time – but I will not be camping – my camping days are over and as I live only a short drive…

‘Congratulations’

Congratulations are in order this week for many of our young people as they celebrate their exam success -I myself send congratulations – all the best for the future – and for their dreams to be realised. Many have worked hard and long and so deserve the results that they have gained – however – not…

‘Focus On The Good’

In no way do I intend to get into any political debate – but recently I was struck by the amount of ‘possible negative outcome’ that was spoken – in order to re-enforce the speakers own political view – instead of being willing to see where’ possible positive outcomes’ may occur. Of course we’re used to…

‘Take Time Out’

My blog is early this week – as I’m going to be taking ‘time out’ – we’re visiting one of my brothers – and then on to spend time with old friends. There is always a lot on social media at this time of year – about friends and families taking time out – it’s…

‘- – – Just – – – Breathe – – -‘

This morning was one of those mornings when I became very conscious of the true value – of simply – breathing – of simply sitting – taking in my surroundings – allowing my senses to respond. Of – taking time – enjoying the moment – breathing in the air around me – the times of…

‘Delete or Let It Go’

This morning I spent some time going through some of the photos on my phone – and deleting some of them – those that had been uploaded by social media that I had little interest in – except just a passing glance – and those that I had more than one copy of – due…

‘Make a Difference’

I’m thankful today for the small ways in which I can involve myself in making a difference in the lives of others. There are so many opportunities for us to do just that – and we really don’t need to feel that we have to be anyone ‘special’ we simply have to care – and…
