‘Walk Alongside’

The other day a group of us went for a walk – a varied group – some used to walking great distances – some moderate walkers – and some for whom even a short walk was quite a challenge. The importance of this walk though – was to be together – a challenge in itself…

‘Tired’

I’m sure most of you will be able to identify with how I felt yesterday – TIRED !! It was just one of those days when I found it difficult to muster up much energy – possibly because I had expended so much energy the day before – that my body simply had no –…

‘- – – 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…

Three weeks ago I wrote a blog entitled ‘The Joy of Planting’ and shared how I was busy planting out some of my favourite plants in the many pots I had found – I was concerned however¬† as a couple of weeks previously the rabbits had eaten our roses – which had been planted in…

‘Awaken The Dawn’

I love the early mornings – especially those mornings when I can sit and watch the dawn breaking. At this time of the year I unfortunately don’t often catch a glimpse of that dawning of the new day – but there is still a freshness – a quietness – and I can experience a ‘dawn…

‘Everyone Has a Story’

She looked sullen – grumpy – kept herself apart – acted as though she carried the world on her shoulders – – – – – – – ‘maybe she did’ He stayed in the shadows – talked to no one – unkept – and sad – – – – – – – – ¬†‘and alone’…

‘The Joy of Planting’

I simply love this time of year – when so many plants are beginning to bloom – my fingers itch to get planting! As we were away last week – and for a long weekend after that – I had decided that it would be better to wait to do my planting when we got…
