Time flies

Today it is 6 months. And I have had friends hovering around me all day. I have said many times that I am truely blessed. I am indeed.

I was sent this, and I have no idea where it originated or who the wise soul was who wrote it, but I think it is worth sharing. Whoever you are, you have written something which says everything I wish I could have found the words for, but so much better. Thank you.


Turn off your TV
Know your neighbours
Look up when you are walking
Greet people
Sit on your front step
Plant flowers
Use your library
Play together
Buy from local shops
Share what you have
Help a lost dog
Take children to the park
Garden together
Support neighbourhood schools
Fix it even if you didn't break it
Honor old people
Pick up litter
Read stories aloud
Dance in the street
Talk to the postman
Listen to the birds
Put up a swing
Help someone carry something heavy
Barter for your goods
Start a tradition
Ask a question
Hire young people for odd jobs
Organize a street party
Bake extra and share
Ask for help when you need it
Sing together
Share your skills
Take back the night
Turn up the music
Turn down the music
Listen before you react to anger
Mediate a conflict
Seek to understand
Learn from new and uncomfortable angles
Know that no one is silent though many are not heard....
Work to change this.

I have been doing some preparation for school, and a friend suggested I use this amazing puzzlemaker website to create puzzles. I don't know if any of you are teachers, but it is such fun!
So, after church with friends, then the babes for tea, followed by more coffee with friends, and getting ready for tomorrow, the day has flown by. I am appreciating weekends a lot more these days. Trying to work out how to fit everything into a normal week is somewhat challenging though. Warp speed doesn't suit me.
