Days like this get you thinking about what happened over the last decade;
Moved to NZ

Franchise. Bought a house.
Travelled to India
Travelled to Vietnam
Travelled to Thailand twice and Cambodia twice.
Took the kids to Europe
Saw my daughter get married and gained a son-in-law
Travelled to Perth many times
Lost 25kg but found 6 of them again!
Welcomed new people into my life…
Changed churches…changed up my theology…
And recalibrated my life and
Contributed to a book…
…my biggest hurdle this decade was losing my husband and becoming single.
The decade brought massive change and massive heartache.
Massive growth and massive retreat.
Would I change any of it?
Yes I would. In a heartbeat. But I can’t. Some things are part of life that we can’t alter no matter what our heart yearns for. But what of tomorrow?
Ah yes tomorrow…maybe I can learn, grow and given the opportunity of life I can see some more happy days…
But for today…I remember these inspiring words from my beloved.
Life is short. Love what you do…
Speak to you soon from a new country as I shift to Cambodia to work in an aid organisation for the new decade ahead.
