“I must find my brave”….. Those are the words which start my journal which I began on 20th November 2016 – 8 days after Elijah passed away, and on what should have been his 5 month old milestone. Instead I found myself writing. And that is what I have continued to do. I think for… Continue reading I Must Find My Brave.
But then, on 29th August our world came crashing down around us, and what followed was 3 weeks of hell. Torture. Complete despair. Heartache like I have never known. Instead of bringing our wee man home, Elijah ended up in PICU that afternoon and was the most fragile little one in The Royal Victoria Hospital. I actually… Continue reading Disappointment.
It seems that the New Year, or maybe it’s the end of the old one? either way, this time of year seems to make people stop and reflect, to think about the year that has passed and the one that lies before them. And I am no different. I’m not a big one for New… Continue reading Hello 2015!
As we say, ‘so long’ to September and ‘let’s be having ya’ to October I feel the need to sit down, relax, take a few deep breaths and let out a great big *sigh*. What a month it has been – with some highs and some, not lows, but some really tough moments. We have… Continue reading It was then that I carried you.

I had heard of different churches organising “Fall Festivals” and “Trunk or Treat” parties and I wanted to do something as an alternative to the usual Hallowe’en activities for families in our church. So, we… Continue reading He is My Light!
So, I’ve been thinking. And thinking and praying and thinking. This has been on my mind for quite some time now and was sparked again by the article that is all over Facebook at the minute! I have been wrestling with it, struggling with it, talking about it, praying about it, studying God’s word on it….church… Continue reading Church with 3 young kids….
It’s Sunday afternoon, the kids are napping, hubster is chilling out on the playstation and I’m wasting a few minutes online with a cuppa. For a while now I’ve been thinking about this, praying about this, chatting about it with family, friends and now I’m going to blog about it!! What is it? – “Being ‘just’… Continue reading I’m a stay at home mum……
This week has seen our annual Holiday Bible Club, of which I have the joy of being in charge! And I really mean that, it is a joy….at times stressful….but definitely a joy. I have a wonderful team of helpers and a great God, who despite our failings and short comings still blesses us and… Continue reading Definitely getting older…..
So it’s 710am and the kids are are still asleep – I’ve been up since 630am trying to get my day kick started in the best possible way! Cue coffee 😉 Ha, there’s more to it than that…..read on. I’ve been asked on a number of occasions about our daily schedule, how we fit everything… Continue reading My power hour!!
