I arrived home late tonight after a long but awesome day, and collapsed in a happy heap, promptly dozing off in front of the television. It had been our wonderful Christmas party--the one I love so much each year, at which 80 or so people supported by our agency gather to celebrate. There is so much intense, unbridled JOY at this event; enough pairs of shining eyes to light up the night sky and smiles that would warm the world.

When I woke up from my doze, I checked email and found an excited email from my friend Dave, congratulating me on Whatever He Says winning first place in the Canadian Blog Awards in the Best Religion Philosophy Blog category. Dave's blog Rolling Around in My Head won first place in the Best Personal Blog category and tied for third place in the Best Health Blog category.

I also congratulate Lynn Dove of Lynne Dove's Journey Thoughts who came in second in the Best Religion and Philosophy category. It was a close race and her blog is marked as a favourite in my side bar.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to vote. This is so exciting!

I will do my utmost to earn the honour throughout the coming year.

Wow! How much affirmation can one person handle? :)

Congratulations... WHS is such a treasure, though relatively well hidden - til now. May this award herald an influx of new treasure seekers and may they see Jesus shining through every word.

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!
