Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

J.  I have two first name, Jacqueline, given me by our sister Lynne...(when Mum was expecting me, Lynne had a book called 'Baby Jacqueline', so it was just accepted that that was who I would be).  And my middle name, May, named after our paternal grandmother.  
One name given by a sister and one given by parents.
So Victoria, as your sister, I would like to give you a middle name.  I choose GRACE.  I think it has a lovely sound.  I choose it because it is all you represent for me.  
Etymology:  Middle English, from Anglo-French, from Latin gratia favour, charm, thanks, from gratus, pleasing, grateful
1a:  unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification
 b:  a virtue coming from God
 c:  seemingly effortless beauty or charm of movement, form or proportion

Victoria Grace...a parent-name and a sister-name.


  1. I'm honoured, humbled and speechless...thanks Sis.
    love you.

  2. And you know the best part...your initials get to be VG...very good!
