An Old Irish Blessing ... May the road rise up to meet you.May the wind always be at your back.May the sun shine warm upon your face,and rains fall soft upon your fields.And until we meet again,May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

"It is said some lives are linked across time. There are certain people connected by an ancient calling that echoes through the ages....destiny."

Life is a fleeting moment. Why live life in moderation and control when it lasts so short a time. Love until you drown in the happiness, laugh until the air you breath escapes you, cry until your tears are dry and live like the next second death will take your soul. Life is yours to live, and live it you must, not in the fear of what is to come next. That Next Place is waiting for you. It waits, in the hope that you will come fulfilled and ready, not in longing and regret.

Wishing you a wonderful new week..Like little birds, we only fly when we get shaken out of our nests; and develop the strongest wings only when we try them against the wind. The dove in a fable, was perturbed because the wind ruffled its feathers, but without that air it could neither soar nor live. In struggle, it is prudent to not wish away every opposition. It is better to meet and master our difficulties that faith can be made stronger through conflict.~Leroy Brownlow~With much love allways

Life is like a Patchwork Quilt

Life is like a Patchwork Quilt. Made up of all sorts of leftover bits and pieces of material, adding a little shiny thread, a button or two, and finished off with a little bit of love. Then loved by all who feel and touch it.
A little like our lives with new and old experiences, which we will draw from for the rest of our lives, remembering and loving.

Places we've been too and things we have done, and holidays we have shared with our loved ones. Some have a way of showing up quite unexpectantly. Since I been journalling (blogging) for and with my SA expat sisters which has been mostly in African. I decided to translate a few to share with others friends as well. So bear with me please as I will be posting the original one as well.
Moving to a new country has been quite stressfull for many families, esp for us girls as the boys go off to work and make friends there, while many girls stay at home to be with the kids until they are settled in. My advice: Don't sit at home, get out there, pack a picnic basket and head for the local park to relax with your families. Make new memories and have a great day out.

Many of our weekends were spend walking through a park, letting the littlies play on the swings and feeding ducks. We usd to lie flat on our backs looking up at clouds , imagining all sorts of shapes of animals. Did you do that when your were little?

When I used to have spare time to read, that was a long time ago, one of the books I really enjoyed was Circles in the Forest (Kringe in die Bos) written by Dalene Matthee, which was then made into a film. It's about a family of woodcutters living in the Knysna Forest in South Africa in the good old days, having it tough just surviving. One of the sons rose out of the poverty but alienates his family ... later to return to protect the keepers of the forest ... The Elephants from being slaughtered for their tusks ... esp Big Foot.

Until next time
