Count your Blessings

When we started this year it was filled with optimism and joy knowing the year will have lots to offer….

As a few months passed we found ourselves in the middle of a pandemic… something totally new to everyone and some took it very lightly while others more seriously…

We found borders within our country closing and distances to travel curtailed….

Everywhere we turned the country and the world in general in turmoil.

And yet through all this we as a family have remained blessed with our health and work…. two things very essential to everyday living.

Christmas is a season I love and look forward to each year. From decorating in vibrant colours to the warming smells of Christmas cake … I love each second that goes into preparing sweets and presents.

This year has been no exception… there is a limit on numbers in the home but we were still able to go to the Family Mass with my family and for the first time in 27 years I didn’t have a lunch in my home. This year it was one better …. it was in my daughters new house.

Boxing Day brought even more joy as her partner proposed to her !!! And today my husband and myself celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary.

How much more joy and gratitude can my heart hold !

As the year draws to a close I thank the Good Lord for all the Blessings we have received this year.

Teaching my Teacher 👩‍🏫

This is the highest praise and honour any person could receive in my book. The comment on my quilting blog below is from my teacher from Loreto House who taught me when I was in middle school.

Makes my heart sing that she wants me to now teach her 💝

The ‘Miss Bose’ she is referring to was my sewing and craft teacher at school. She had asked for me to take over her position at school after she retired. I was heading to Australia at the end of that year so couldn’t do it. If I was living in Calcutta still I would have been the sewing teacher at my Alma Mater for 28 years by now !!!

Life somehow comes full circle and for one of my teachers to ask me to teach her is amazing and humbling ❤️
