‘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…

‘Healing Rain’

The morning was heavy – rain clouds covered the sky – releasing the rain to fall in abundance. I had a choice to make – miss my first walk of the day – or – brave the elements – and walk in the rain. I recalled the many times over the years – when I…

‘Finding My Way’

I was listening to a song this morning – one that I know well – and the lyrics of which I have quoted before. They struck me afresh today though – as I am very conscious of living the reality of which they speak. The song is entitled ‘Here Again’ – and the words that…

‘Time To Recharge’

I have been having problems with my laptop over recent weeks – but today – when I opened it up to begin my blog post – it simply wouldn’t even switch on. I tried and tried – to no effect – and was beginning to think that I had no alternative – but to work…

‘Mission Accomplished’

A few weeks ago – I set myself a task – a mission – and that was to plant quite a large number of spring bulbs in our garden – well – for me it was a large amount! This week I had the great satisfaction of seeing that mission accomplished. I do so love…

‘Let Nature Speak’

Feeling a little ‘under the weather’ – and seeking inspiration for my blog post this week – I decided that the best thing that I could do – was to go for a walk. As I set off – out of the village and into the countryside – I was conscious of some words rising…
