LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE…

I don’t feel that this picture needs much dialogue but it makes me smile. One of the greatest gifts of being human is our ability to see the funny side of all of life’s situations.   There is nothing more uplifting than the giggles and screeches of happy children.  It is good for the soul……

LOOKING IN THE MIRROR…

This may sound silly but I have always tried to look at myself in the mirror and say that I am beautiful. While I have done it, I have never felt it and usually roll my eyes or dissolve in laughter. It is different with my daughter. I place her in front of the mirror…

SO I’M A DREAMER…

I am someone with big dreams; a vision for my life that is sometimes so far removed from ordinary levels of living, thinking and feeling that it makes me giggle to myself.   In that vision for myself I am free and my heart feels so full that it may actually explode. The wind is in…

A new term begins…

After a holiday spent getting cozy on cold days and catching up with our family, we begin our term 2. The children and I all struggled to sleep and it is hard to know exactly why.  I was having a talk to Cove, who was the most restless of us all, and he said that…

I feel…

CHAPTER 5 CONTINUED…

CHAPTER 5…

Towards the end of our journey around Australia we began to feel a pull towards finding a place to call home. For probably the last 12 years Trent and I have dreamt of one day owning our own property. In the days of vision boards we imagined green rolling hills, a running creek, breathtaking views…

THE CHANGE IN ME…

Our travels around Australia taught me so much about change. We fear it because every time it happens, it takes us out into the unknown. We are taught very young to stay within the boundaries, to follow the rules that have been set. Who set these rules? Why were we taught that there is a…
