Big Excitement

Note from Belinda

The sadness at leaving Rob on our last day here is softened by excitement at another event that I am so thrilled to point readers to. 

My dear friend Dave, known to many readers here through his frequent comments and occasional guest posts, invited me to write an article with him for the August edition of a newsletter for direct care professionals: Service, Support and Success. 

The article is titled: Faith, Freedom and Fealty: Supporting People with Disabilities to Live Freely.  

Please see Dave's post: August Newsletter is Out for details on how to order a copy and subscribe to the newsletter, which comes out monthly. Just 

If you work supporting people, or know anyone who does, you will find the newsletter  excellent reading.

Working on this article with Dave was a highlight of my writing life so far, although rather than being the lead writer as Dave generously says on his blog, I had the supporting role!

I felt God's energy flowing through all of it and know that God used us to write something that will make a difference in the lives of those who need support and those who have the job of supporting.

Good on ya! Being a reader of Dave as well - I know he is the type of person who wouldn't ask if he didn't have confidence - and will appreciate your knowledge shared. (Yet another confirmation from the Lord about writing, right?!?!)

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!
