  • Don’t just survive—thrive!

    Today, two things stood out to me.

  • Finding your place to flourish

    Times have certainly changed rapidly in the past couple of years. I don’t think anyone has been untouched by this new way of life. It’s almost as if the turn of 2020 also turned on a switch that changed normal into unnormal. Such times have required much from us: to stretch, grow, test, and think differently. But though circumstances change, God never changes and neither does His love for us.

  • The best day ever!

    During the years of my children being at school, there have been a few days or more when they have lacked the desire to go to school. Comments like, “Do we have to go to school today?” and “I think I might be sick and need to stay home” (when obviously they weren’t) — the whole dragging the feet after returning to school after six weeks of Christmas holidays etc…you know how it goes.

  • The signet ring

    Lately I’ve been signing a lot of permission forms. With school comes excursions, school photos, subject changes, extra-curricular activities, camps…all of which need the authority of a parent’s permission.

  • Stop crying and laugh

    The funeral had concluded, and the hearse slowly and respectfully drove out of the church parking bay and onto the road.

  • Small beginnings are full of surprises

    “Mum, do you think you could teach me how to play the guitar?” asked my eleven-year-old son one day after school. I had played a little guitar when in school and remembered a beginners guitar book that was sitting in our music room.

  • Light-bulb moments

    One of my sons has entered his senior years at school and it has suddenly dawned on him that the work they are given during the term lessons, is to equip them for their assessments at the end of the term.

  • Where the river flows, everything will live

    My arms were getting tired and I could feel the skin wearing from my elbows with all the backward paddling I was doing

  • Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water…

    This tag line from the movie Jaws came to mind when people were wishing the year 2020 “good riddance”.

  • The Great Roar!

    If you have little children, have you ever noticed how quickly they can slip out of your grasp and out of your sight?
