Hello and a warm welcome to my site here on WordPress! May I offer you a virtual cup of tea, and somewhere to rest awhile before you carry on with whatever you want/need to be doing..
It’s been a while since I updated this.here editorial page. For what it’s worth and to those who concern themselves about such things, I sincerely apologise. I just could n’t get my focus on. Looking to start getting on top of things now, and polish up my act as it were.
You see, the last six months, the first half of this year were among the most challenging I have ever faced Caring for our beautiful Mum, and then losing her on Good Friday was heartbreaking to say the least. Though, on a lighter note, I think she would have found it highly amusing sharing her exit from this world with Jesus Christ, albeit 2021 or so years behind. Being of the Roman Catholic faith, she would have felt that maybe sharing that date had some special significance. I say this with much respect, and hope I have n’t offended anyone as that would never be my intention. Our family is slowly coming to terms with our mum not being here. She was most certainly the ‘heart’ of our family. You know how people often say, the kitchen is the heart of the home because it’s where everyone gathers to chat and catch up in warm and welcoming surroundings, it’s a bit like that. This ‘little woman’ may have been small in stature but she was a woman of substance who kept the family together. She was passionate, down to earth, intuitive and so very clever. She had a great sense of humour, and a truly infectious laugh. Sometimes, she would laugh just because you were laughing, which made you laugh even more. I miss her so much. We all do but we will be okay in time. Time I am told is a great healer!
So, here I am once more, with fingers to the keyboard tap, tap, tapping away, and ready to work that writing muscle, and get it back in working order. It’s been far too lazy for far too long. Words hold so much power. Often we forget that they have the power to harm as well as the power to heal. I hope to use words for healing. With my virtual pen in hand or rather my usually trusty MAC book, I plan on the next six months being a springboard into something wonderful. Not sure what that ‘wonderful’ is just yet as still working on the specifics. I have a few things on the go just now but nothing set in concrete. That suits me at this time. I am just going to let things unfold naturally, without forcing anything, and see where life takes me.
Wherever you are on your life journey just now, be kind to yourself. Say no when you need to. Rest when you need to, and laugh as often as you can, and get together in the kitchen from time to time. Put your phones down and talk to those you love, and listen too. Remember, communication is a two way exchange. Most importantly, put those phones down and be present and give all of your attention to the person/people you are with. Moments with those we love are as precious as it gets!.
During this next month of July, there will be more writing, more photography (my other passion), and news of my project ‘The Tulip Tree’ which just now is like a seed I have planted but which needs nurturing.
I got through all that without referring to ‘the match’ as in England v Germany. What a match it was! Exciting and edge of the seat stuff. There was brilliant play from both teams but the result speaks for itself. Of course, I am biased.
I nearly managed not to mention the match but could n’t resist. Hope that was okay.
I wish you a Happy and Healthy July with lots of love, luck and laughter!
ps. I really must get a new picture on here but not yet lol
