From Liz

By Belinda

I had an email from Liz, my paramedic friend in England this morning. This is what she had to say (below.) God's angel of mercy at just the right moment. How wonderful that when I cannot be there, God has his agents to take our place.

Hello Belinda,Hope you are all well.I was at Redditch hospital today, and when my colleague and i went onto M.A.U ward, i recognised a familiar face........your lovely Mum Peiter. I was surprised to see her through the window of a side room. I asked the nurse if it was at all possible to go and say hello before we went. Your Mum said yes  when i asked her if she remembered me, and Robert said he did, it would have been from the photo's. It was lovely to see your mum again, but obviously not in hospital.......hoping she makes a speedy recovery.I do hope the nurse took the sponges in to your mum, i asked her for. They will help to moisten her mouth and freshen it for her. I know Robert came out and asked for them before we went,  and i told him to ask again in 10 mins, if they forgot.......they do get very busy on the ward, but patients still need certain things for their comfort.Take care, sending big hugs, and best wishes across the waves. Liz xx

Wow, what a testimony to the tender heart of a loving Father who not only hears and answeres prayer, but brings comfort to an anxious heart.

Amen sister!

And also a testimony to the tender heart of friends and to the depth of the wonderful human spirit. When the two spirits combine 'holy' and 'human' ... remarkable things happen.

Dave, all that you said is so true. Liz arriving when she did was such an indication to me that God has Mum covered.

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!
