‘Showing Respect’

This past week has brought to us so many images of people coming together – to remember – and to pay their respects to our late Queen. People have travelled – from far and near – crowds have gathered – for many hours – in order to walk past the Queen’s coffin – as her…

‘We Remember’

As I prepared to post my blog today – I realised that uppermost in so many hearts and minds – would be our queen – who died yesterday. I felt that I couldn’t let such a momentous time in our history go by – without some recognition. First and foremost – my prayers are for…

‘Distractions’

My intent- as the day began – was to draft my blog post for this week – but – guess what – I got distracted! On opening up my computer – I was faced with a previous page I had been working on – but this was no blog page – instead it was ‘work…

‘Making New Memories’

This past week we had a day at the coast – a part of the coast that holds many memories for us all – from childhood – through teen years and into adulthood – and a trip that we have undertaken for the past three years. It was a great day – and we were…

‘Live In The Present’

I woke this morning – with a phrase going through my head – ‘Leave the past – and live in the present’ and I found it very pertinent – as I switched on my computer – to discover that the draft I had written yesterday – for this blog – had disappeared again. This was…

‘The Value Of A Simple Message’

This past week we celebrated our 56th Wedding Anniversary – and for me – one of the things that made it special – was reading all the messages – sent by so many people. The variety was amazing – friends from far and wide – friends from many years ago – and recent ‘new friends’…
