Monday Musings...

As I sit on this warm full of sunshine day I feel a twinge of sadness. You see this is the last week of the school holidays & come Thursday we will be back into school routines with all the rush & bustle first thing in the day trying ot get out the door & to school on time.
This year I am really going to endeavour NOT to argue with my 8 year old & to get up that 15 mins earlier so the morning runs smoother!!!
I have loved the "go slow" holidays where Max can be in PJ's all day if we are having a home day & the nice leisurely pace of life. However school brings blessings as as well. I can get back to my gym routine, get out for coffee with girlfriends minus kids in tow, get back to my writing & study etc etc. So in this I thank God. He truly does provide us a "reason for each season" if we but look!!

My darling sister Annaliese sent me a recipe book made by her MEGS (Mothers Encouragement Group) as a fundraiser & in it I found this beautiful quote:

Happiness is like a butterfly, which when pursued is always beyond our grasp. But which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. -Nathaniel Hawthorne-

May you find time to sit quietly today & feel your happiness & the blessings bestowed upon you.


  1. Glad you're having a day full of sunshine! We are to get more snow here tomorrow. I agree with you....I love the days we can hang out in pj's all day too! Good luck with the morning routine--hope all goes well!

  2. Thanks Tiff for sharing that lovely quote. I'm looking forward to having the house back again, just me and the dogs.


Thankyou for blessing me by stopping by my little blog - I always appreciate your comments TK xx
