Hard week

I haven't posted for the last few days as we have had a few challenges in the last few weeks and a little sadness.   My husband lost a friend in a farming accident.  He was only 53 years old. My brother in law's niece lost her fight with meningitis on Tuesday, she was only 18 years old.  I have also been flat on my back in alot of pain.  I still don't know what caused the back problems.

Life makes changes for us for reasons. I think the reason I had this was to slow down and smell the roses a little more.  I have learned in the last few weeks

  • Life is fragile enjoy every moment
  • We don't know when our time will come to leave this earth use each day well
  • Enjoy everything we are blessed with
  • Don't waste time on uninportant trivialities
  • Put relationships first in life
  • Enjoy our families we don't know how long we will have with them
  • Slow down and see each moment of our live
  • Life will go on without us,  we are not indedispensible
  • Look after ourself we only have one us! 
  • live with a heart of gratitude
  • Spend time not money
  • Rest when possible
And always put people first,


  1. Oh dear, you have been it with quite a load, but I love your sentiment and advice. Hugs to you and your family...xx

  2. I'm so sorry Catherine, life can be tough sometimes. I agree with your thoughts and hope your back gets better soon.

    I love your spiderweb photos too, there is such perfection and beauty if we take the time to look.


I love hearing from you. Leave me a message :)
