Let’s Open our Eyes to the New Day’s Possibilities

HI Everyone!

Last night was a real technological nightmare.   Whether caused by the weather and our dish on the roof (we do not have Broadband)……we live in a ‘black hole’ – Their… (ie Government) terminology certainly not mine.!,   Nothing worked.  I could not do the Day six assignment because all the links were missing!  (Its still the same this am…I go to email and click on Commons and then can change sites to get here.) Direct entry ….no links to do anything!

BUT…..Here I am!


A new day has dawned –  New possibilities.  New challenges. so  Good Morning! Hope its a Good ONE!     I have a dear friend – more like a mother/mentor she will be 100 years old next month.   She told me once she wakes up and proclaims ‘Thank God, I am still breathing’.   From that point on she slowly stirs the body parts until she can get up and begin her day.   In all my life I have never met someone like her.  She has lived through it all.   Death of children and husband, friends etc. yet she not only lives but garners from every day all the beauty and joy she can gather and on the way encourages the ones she meets.                       SURPRISE YOURSELF BY WHAT THIS DAY CAN HOLD.  

2009 Forestry walk

Perhaps not the most beautiful walking spot in the world – the forestry with the dogs. But Oh the possibilities.  Today I may see a kangaroo.  Today there may be a wildflower growing amidst the scrub.

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
