a day in the amazing journey that is life


what a full day its been
(fotos by chardonnay 30/4/17)
 full of the most amazing experiences..       
(fotos by chardonnay 30/4/17)
shared by my other half...
( which is really unusual because hes usually busy with his golf or work )
and it didnt cost a fortune...well it didnt cost a penny to be exact
we explored the beautiful world that we are so fortunate to live in
well a very minute part of it
the wind blew in our faces as we experienced the beauty that is spring
nature at its most amazing
birds singing and calling out to each other overhead
 as we walked beneath the trees full to bursting with new life
ducks diving under water for fish..
carrying twigs to complete their new nests
and to await their new babies
riches that can not be bought ....full of natures treasures
we just need to leave ourselves open to this amazing journey that is life
(fotos by chardonnay 30/4/17)
a new and unique journey evey day
ending the day with a sweet exhaustion
and still yearning for more...
thank the blessed Lord for it
feeling blessed and fortunate

A wonderful message to us all...
Because at the end of the day
who really cares
only US... when we have missed that window of opportunity..

that one time..

When we really wanted to dance 

When  we really wanted to love ...and take a chance

When we wanted to sing at the top of our voice..

bcause at the end of the day its our life..our choice

because at the end of the day NO ONE cares
 
only us....

Heaven sent

It has been one of those amazing times in life when there is just no comparison....
feeling blessed


I have been blessed with another beautiful perfect little granchild...
A brand new life 
that moment when that special moment ...never to be repeated moment
when the little fella takes his first breath
a gift from God
and a moment in time which you were privileged to witness
Thank you Lord for this new life
I pray you will be with him always 
to guide him on his special journey
to protect him and love him
and I pray Our Lady will surround him with her love and guidance
Thank you

phone calls ..one after the other..
breath??   no chance...no time to recover...
to say I was glad to get in my car and go home today,  is probably an understatement

the reception was a hive of activity with every man

When you realise that there are some really nice people in life out there

But u just neva met them....
Image result for nice people

I must be honest I've never been surrounded by really nice people.....
I'd go so far as to say that if I had to name a dozen really nice genuine people...sadly, I would fail
May be that is being ambitious to try to name 12 really nice people...
may be its just the circles I am in....who knows...and I guess that reflects on me too
Don't misunderstand me ...I feel truly blessed that I have my immediate family...I thank The Blessed Lord for them every day

So imagine my surprise when I started this job....
( especially after the experience of my last job )
I can truthfully say they all have been so kind and friendly ..it is actually unbelievable, that there are so many (seemingly ) nice people out there...
(call me a pessimist ....and believe me I always look for the best in people...( but its tough !!)
Image result for nice peopleand in my experience ( 54 years) people are not usually nice for no good reason !!!!!)
But from the recruitment Lady ( who has contacted me several times to ask how I'm getting on )  to the Director who introduced himself to me today....
and all the staff in between... they have all been so kind
and especially the lovly lady who I am taking over from ( who is retiring ) shes going to be a hard act to follow..
I put my hands together to thank the Lord for this opportunity ...and hope I can be deserving of it
It has renewed my faith in peope....

they are both professional and passionate about what they teach
they strive to be the best they can...hence why we love them so much..
