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 world...to 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

On Being a Mother


"There is a room in my heart reserved just for my children.  When they are here, I sit in this room and I am calm.  When they are in my house, quietly sleeping upstairs, even for  a brief time, it gives me such exquisite peace.  I think this must be the most wonderful gift of motherhood." JP

  2. The privilege of motherhood. Fatherhood is slightly different, but no less wonderful.

  3. Being a mother can take you through a whole spectrum of emotions. But I'm so glad that I've had the privilege of being a mum and a gran.
