My wish for you in 2014

"I Wish You Enough!®"

 By   Bob Perks

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.

I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish you enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Goodbye."


Two posts in two days ...Wow!! Forgot to mention.....

I did mention in a previous post that I had been put forward to join the
National Governing  Body  of Arthritis NZ
To my surprise I have been elected and join the Board in February 2014
This will mean trips to Wellington for a couple of days about 6 times a year.
If one is allowed to be excited  ... I am excited and looking forward to the challenge.

I am still here ...

So Christmas is just about over and the New Year is almost upon us.
I hope you all had a  peaceful and blessed Christmas.
It has been awhile again since I blogged ...  lots of water has gone under the bridge  over the last couple of months ... a few hospital visits nothing to serious and all on the mend.
Been busy sewing and not a lot of quilting but did make a few items for swaps that I joined.
Unfortunately I lost a couple of friends over the last couple of months ... I guess it is that time of life when one should expect this but it is always very hard when it happens especially
when it is sudden and unexpected.
I have also been busy getting things done maintenance wise on the house, the drive and cobbled yard have both been relayed not by me of course  ... some trees removed from the garden and all the rest have had a good hair cut again  by Bruce the lovely garden maintenance man.
I have spent some time sitting in the garden stitching since the break up  of all my activities for the summer period this is where I was sitting ... unfortunately I had removed the table when I remembered to take the picture.
Pictures of what I have been doing in the next post ...  promise  
So every one take care have a lovely Summer if you live in the South of the world
 a cozy winter for all you who live in the  North
