‘Just Being Me’

My life’s journey – especially over the past months – has changed me. Firstly – there was the death of my lovely daughter in law – and all the changes that brought to all our lives. This was almost instantly followed by the onset of Covid – bringing restrictions – and causing isolation – from…

‘Being Flexible’

This week – I am having to learn to be flexible – well – more flexible in some ways anyway. It was discovered – almost two weeks after my recent fall – that I had a fracture in my right hand – and so – I now have a splint on it – which means…

‘Give It Time’

I have to confess that I do verge on the ‘impatient side’ – I want thangs to happen here and now – I’m not good at waiting! After my fall last week – I was impatient – wanting everything to heal quickly – to not hold me back from getting on with all I wanted…

‘The Gift Of Hospitality’

I have been on the receiving end of some wonderful hospitality this week – and my soul has been blessed. There was such a warm welcome extended by the hosts – time given for all the guests to greet one another – followed by a wonderful meal – around a table of interesting conversations. I…

‘When Enough Is Enough’

This morning I was peddling away on my exercise bike – something I try to do each day – when I said to myself – “enough – I need to stop before I push myself too far”. This got me thinking of the number of times when – particularly as I have got older –…

‘Your Unique Shape’

Over the past two or three weeks – I have been indulging in one of my favourite pastimes – challenging myself – with jigsaw puzzles – this is something that I tend to engage in at this time of the year – whiling away those long dark days. The latest puzzle is composed of so…
