Dear Friends,
I had a phone call from Rob before I left for work this morning to say that Mum had not been well over the weekend. She had some chest congestion when I was there that was normal for her, but it got worse.

He called in the doctor yesterday (she isn't strong enough to fight anything off,) and he said that as soon as she started antibiotics that he prescribed, she showed signs of improvement. He said her fleet of Helping Hands ladies were being marvelous.

Tonight as soon as I got home from work, I called Rob. It was 10.45 pm in England and John my nephew answered the phone. He said that Rob had gone to the hospital with Mum. Apparently she had had a fall and there was a lot of blood. I can  only think that she got up after going to bed and lost her balance.

Right now I wish I was sleeping in the room next to hers, listening for movement in the night.

I  hope I can post a "Mum update" soon saying that her leg is stitched up and she is right as rain. Stay tuned.

Belinda as I was finishing up my day on my computer I felt complelled to go onto your blog again. I had been there this am, reading your post. I now know the prompting was the Holy Spirit. Praying for peace and comfort for you and healing for your mom and comfort and peace for your brother.

Thank you again for your posts from home, I loved your references to the sheep

God Bless Belinda
My heart is in my throat ... which is ok, I suppost cause my prayers will have both voice and heart. She's become 'mum' to many here on this blog.

Thank you Dave and Julie. "Our" Mum is home and in good spirits. Rob is tired of course, and we need God's wisdom to know if we need to take a next step for more care for Mum. I'm glad I know God loves her even more than we do and that he is watching over her.

Just Joy!

Our family has a standing date for Sunday dinner on the first Sunday of every month. Not that we don't see each other at any other time, but we all know that particular Sunday is pretty much for sure--and I look forward to it so much--the front door bursting open and our house being filled once more with the voices and vibrancy of six grandchildren and their parents. 

This week Spero, Brenda's new Australian Shepherd puppy came too, and met his extended family, leaving Molson at home to have a rest! He was duly adored by all of us.

He came with a dazzling array of toys and is proving a fast learner, already sitting on command and responding to Tori's training. I was so impressed at her technique of quickly rewarding a turnaround from any slight naughtiness with praise for "good sitting," or "good" any other desirable behaviour! 

Tippy had her hair cut stunningly and bravely short the day before; making a statement about who she is as a unique individual, o…

The Secret Adventures of Susan's Scottish Scarf

By Belinda (with a lot of help from Susan :))
I was saying goodnight to her at the front door this week when she told me. There was apparently more to the scarf around her neck than I knew. 
The scarf had been a gift from me for Susan's birthday on Tuesday December 18th. It had been her 60th; and that day I had treated her to lunch to celebrate. 
We met at a tiny restaurant, Port Soiree, in Schomberg,near her office. It was a restaurant neither of us had been to before and it turned out to be a gem, with artsy ambiance, amazing food, wonderful service and modest pricing. In other words, it was perfect!
