Treasures In The Garden
Growing older can be a time of sadness as children grow up and
move away, health begins to fail and we save for eventual funerals.
However it can be a time of excitement, happiness and Magic
In the last week we have had some of all of that in our life
and made us feel glad to be alive.
….it started with the visit of our kids from the UK here to catch up with family and friends.
….a visit to Toowoomba to be with Bek as she celebrated her birthday.
….which meant we could catch up with Chris “friend” and her gorgeous family
….a lovely BBQ with Christine and her caring family
….and then a trip to Roma to be with more family
traveling through a glorious sunset
to meet up with Wayne and Leanne who drove all the way from Mackay
A big THANK YOU to LEIGH who allowed us to invade his house and all be together for……..
The Christening/ baptism of Axel Blake
….Baby Axel who brought magic to all of us with his sweetness and beautiful nature
And his Dad and Mum Shane and Jamie who are doing a great job atbeing parents of that darling boy
….And Leigh.. who is somebody very special indeed, being supportive to Jamie and Shane as they battle their way through early parenthood.
And the family BBQ on Saturday night where we were able to be together with Jamie and Shanes’ friends and very yummy food
….And the lovely Christening/ Baptism where Christian and Maree got be godparents of baby Axel
….And there’s more
….A picnic with Jamie’s family to celebrate the Christening/ Baptism.
Now … how wonderful was all of that!
And Last night being in Brisbane with Christian and Bek and Adam, eating at a yummy Chinese Restaurant, staying at a gorgeous BnB and the yummiest breakfast. Another big THANKS to Christian and Bek for making that happen for us. We hope you enjoy your quiet time in Malaysia for you deserve it. We love your kindness so much.
My word for today is “MAGIC!”
And we had a safe trip home today to lovely rain.
