Life right now

My year have started at quite a pace. 

I am currently very busy organising my 50th.  I designed a very simple card that I just tread a ribbon trough...simple and quick.  So now it is deciding on menus, draping and flowers.  Very exciting but also very exhausting.

We took a break from work the week between Christmas and New Year...that has a knock-on effect and I am totally snowed under with administration and financial matters.  During our break I fell into the awful(ly) lovely habit of taking a snooze in the afternoon, so to get used to working full day again is quite something;-D

Where the Mission is concerned, there has been some amazing developments and we are excited about what is happening.  We have prayed for and about this for the past 13 years...and now it seems to be happening!  The Mission is going to go into a new phase and it is so BIG that only the Lord could have done is humanly impossible to have all these puzzle pieces coming together. I will share more on this in another blogpost soon.   Promise.

But now I am so tired and need a snooze.



  1. WOW! You are a busy lady! Those afternoon power naps are an essential part of my day. Getting back into the swing of things is not easy, I was exhausted when I got home this afternoon.
    Hope you have a fantabulous birthday, wish I could have been there with you.
    Send me your snail mail address and I will send you a card (I promise it won't be a store bought one)

    Hope this is a great year for your family.

  2. I love afternoon snoozes, and I think work should have alloted snooze times to enable better functioning...:-)
