Just a little kiss..............................

I was in Church this Sunday morning past and was heading to speak to someone who had waved me over.  As I reached their pew I noticed that the pew behind had just been sat in by a family who had just suffered a bereavement.

One of the people in the pew was a young mum called C.M who had with her, her toddler Daughter, her Husband, her Brother in law and her Mother in law who had just lost her Husband.  I said my hellos gave C.M a hug.  Just as I finished the hug the little one put out her arms so I hugged her and gave her a peck on the cheek.  And then in the cutest voice ever said..."fank kiss Daddy"

I always think in times of upset and therapy is an AMAZING thing and it was lovely to see and hear this family sharing a moment of happiness!

Don't know what the Daddy would have done if I had planted a smacker???

The Cup Song

This video features my amazing Daughter, H who is 14 and loves to sing!!!  I love this video and she practice long and hard to learn this...well done Sweetie!!

Bucket List for the young?

Whilst I was looking for Sunday School material online the other night, I came across this article about a Bucket List of 50 things to have done by the time you were 12. 

It got me thinking to how many of these things on this list would have been achieved by our different generations...Grandparents....Parents.....our Children?  And how each generation would have achieved some but not others.  For example I'm sure my Grandfather would never have played Geocahce (mind you neither would I!!) but he certainly skimmed a stone or dammed a stream.

But what actually are the chances of our Children in todays society being allowed to camp out in the wilds....go wild swimming?

Each generation comes along with some new oppurtunities but sadly loses some old oppurtunities along the way.......

1/2 3 Score & Ten Today!

Happy Birthday to me! I've reached the lofty heights of 35 today and boy do I feel it! But on the brighter side will probably feel about 50 on Sunday morning after my night out with my girlie's!

Skinned Rat?!?!

Our little puppy has been struggling with the heat(imagine wearing a fur coat in the sunshine) So we decided we better get him clipped....The mobile dog groomer arrived last week and after a bit of a fight...Ta skinned rat....Poor wee soul he is absolutely tiny, his collar is hanging off him and anyone who we pass when we're out walking him all have this very sorry look on their faces....but at least he's enjoying the weather now!
