A jolt, a song and a Birthday breakfast.

Jolt

I felt the jolt, as I was in deep sleep I thought it was a dream.  Then came another and another, so it wasn’t a dream after all.  I distinctively heard children’s voices singing “Happy Birthday to you Mum, Happy Birthday to you Mum ” and they added their own verse, “Wake up and eat your breakfast”.  At this point I started yawning and stretching, with the aroma of a delicious English Breakfast and the children’s happy faces, I didn’t need any convincing.  I thanked, hugged and kissed each of them and winked at my husband who had supervised their morning endeavours.

Cranky kids

Ever been shopping and if not yours but another parent’s kid gets cranky and screams?  I always put it done to a very tired kid who has just had enough of shopping.  What do you think and have you ever been the parent with the cranky kid?  I have had a little taste of this and more of trying to catch up with the  ‘100 metre dash’ through the store aisles..

The Power of His Love

The measure of your love,

So deep it touches the depth,

And we couldn’t fathom its ending

That no one could ever reach,

Such a height that’s way above an Everest

Upon Everest of skyscrapers you ever did see,

And this is all without the width measure,

The inclusion of which would be and is

It is a truly miraculous power because

It’s the Love Jesus Christ Our Lord has for us.

News Flash: It Ain’t About Them

I hope you enjoy this reblog from Mariane@the side of the road.

I would like to pass along a riveting piece of advice an dear elder of mine in AA shared with me some years ago.  She didn’t share it nicely but she did share it with love and good intention.  The love was to propel me to be honest with myself and the intention was to shatter a false reality I had lived with most of my life.  Her missions were accomplished and then some.  I have never looked at the type of thoughts and behaviours in question the same since then, and have been able to change many of my actions around them because of her.  For that, I remain forever grateful.
