Monday Musings....

'If you have health, you probably will be happy, and if you have health and happiness, you have all the wealth you need, even if it is not all you want'
~Elbert Hubbard~

pop on over here and read this post by Mindy....rather thought provoking on inner beauty, being at peace and happy and content with what we have. I have a step daughter and one of my greatest concerns is that she grow up loving herself for being just her. My prayer is that she will understand God made her especially to be the girl and the woman she is to become. I have battled over the years, and who hasn't, with feeling I am ok, that I am beautiful enough, smart enough, clever enough, elegant enough for this world. I have had to slowly learn that truly if we have health and happiness in who we are, then these are prize jewels to be preciously guarded with our hearts and our minds.....and I am still learning!!!!

This Weekend I Am Grateful For

my sisters....
We live FAR FAR apart and I am especially missing them just now
BUT I will get to see my Annie-easter (Annaliese) and her boys really soon.
They are travelling over to be with us in April for a family occasion. We will get to do sister things together for a couple of days - girly girl stuff, along with coffees, chats and chocolate!

My Soph-a-loph (Sophie) lives on the other side of the world and I just really wish I could pop on over to spend a day or two with her but alas no...
however I think, just think mind, that they are coming home for Christmas sooooo
thats something else to be grateful for!!

My beautiful sisters get me, they care for me, they make me laugh, they make me a better person, they make me whole. Without them I wouldn't be the Tiffany that I am. I want them to know that I love them, I cherish them and today I am ever so grateful for them - I love you both very very much!!

Monday Musings...on Tuesday!!

Well yesterday went by in a bit of a blur and though I had plenty of musings in my head, I didn't get to the laptop to put them down!! This thought is taken from a roll of electrical tape....that I held in my hand but could not see as my hands were behind my back...its amazing what the mind can come up with!!!

You deceive me with
your curviness
your suppleness
and apparent willingness to
you see,
I think I can
make you do
what I want
that I can make
you be
what I need
I am sure
you will
stretch out and on
for all ways
but then
in just an instant
you can
you snap
you break
and leave me with
this ragged
torn edge.

my love relationship with Anais Nin

I adore anything written by Anais Nin and this is my find this week when sorting through a pile (and I mean P.I.L.E) of papers, brochures, shopping dockets (???), bags, postcards, stuff, stuff, more stuff....

" each friendship represents a world in us,
a world possibly not born
until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting
that a new world is born"

Happy Friday peoples,

Monday Musings....


Across the gateway of my heart
I wrote "No thoroughfare,"
But love came laughing by, and cried
"I enter everywhere".

Today I am grateful for
our lifeline to God.

'Praying Hands' by Albrecht Durer

The story behind this etching is amazing...the artist did it in honour of his
brother Albert, who sacrificed his hands in work to support Albrecht while he studied art in Nuremberg. It is a true reminder to be grateful in ALL things and give a little prayer of thanks each day.

May you find lots to be grateful for today! Pop on over here for more 'pockets of grateful'.

Port Willunga

I have had this dream, this wish for a long long time and finally last weekend it
was realised - WOW what a day!!

We took ourselves off for a drive 'down south' of Adelaide to the gorgeous
Port Willunga.
The day was sunshine'y gorgeous, not a cloud to be seen
Families were dotted along the beach everywhere
enjoying this last hurrah befoe the new school year commenced
There are these amazing caves cut in to the cliff face....
the perfect shelter from the sun's rays

We went for a lovely walk, getting our feet wet in
the cooling sea
I felt it was just as if I was somewhere on the Greek Islands...
I truly had to pinch myself, it hardly seemed real!!!
BUT....IT....WAS...and right here in our lovely
South Australia!!!
Then we had a late lunch at the much famed 'Star of Greece Cafe' -
was it worth the trip?
It was a deliriously magical day!!
