Gratitude Mondays


Every Monday, I like to focus on gratitude.  It is hard to continually come up with new and exciting things to be grateful for.  You have to really look…  And that is the key, I believe.  It is in the looking that you change your mind and start thinking new thoughts.  And it isn’t always easy… Continue reading Gratitude Mondays

Evaluating your Year – 2016


Evaluating your Year – 2016 Whilst on holiday, I read a blog post from Jennifer at Unveiled Wife, and I really liked the idea.  The idea is to look at your year last year and give a brief evaluation of how your year went.  I think, overall, I had a really good year last year. … Continue reading Evaluating your Year – 2016

To my darling Baby Girl

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!


Little Baby Girl has turned seven.  She’s not so little anymore, but I was quite complimented when her aunt (my brother’s wife) told me about how much they enjoy her company and what a lovely young lady she has grown up to be. And she is lovely. I am so proud that my little girl is… Continue reading Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!
