"At every step you make me digress;
today I do not know whither I am destined."
Maureen- I love being able to see your lovely face at last! Now I can picture you when I read yoru blog. Thank you for the lovely thoughts, especially the prayer.It is beautiful. I am feeling better after receiving a blessing from my son and the comfort from the knowledge that my Heavenly Father knows my burdens and will give me the things I need to endure. The injured one has calmed down greatly and is milking his boo-boos for all they are worth. Honestly.Have a happy New Year. Oh, you only have an hour to go!! I'll be thinking about you at 7 pm our time.
A Very Happy and peaceful New Year to you too!!!(5 hours and 50 mins to go here..aren't time zones strange things!)
You can't beat a good Celtic blessing can you, M? May those good wishes be returned to you a hundredfold.I'm raising a metaphorical glass to our deepening friendship and to many more meetings in 2009. PS Are you still up for that quilting course ... ?
Karin and Val, I think we are all in 2009 now, so very best wishes to you.D, I will look up the details at once!
What a wonderful blessing! And a happy New Year to you, too, Maureen.
And to you, Carolyn.
And to you! Wonderful words. Thank you for sharing your blog this year. I have so enjoyed meeting you.
Happy New year to you too M, and to all your family and friends - virtual ones included. I enjoy being part of this little international community and although not very 'vocal', I take great pleasure in travelling to the different Blogs who visit at Random Distractions, and reading them I am affirmed in my certainty that there a many lovely people in our world.
Crinny, you are so right. There are so many lovely people that I would not have encountered but for blogging. Nan, I love my visits to your Hill Farm and hope that you and yours have a good 2009.
What a wonderful blessing - and from one of my favourite places on earth, too. I wish you a happy, blessed and peaceful new year also. (And may 2009 be the year in which we meet at long last!!)
That would make it a wonderful year, J.
A little late but thank you for posting the poem. It is a fitting ambition/wish. All the best for 2009 and beyond Michele
Thanks, Michele. Family and illness got in the way of my return visit to Rackenford. I hope to see you before too long. Very best wishes for 2009.
I love to read your comments and promise that I will reply as soon as I can leave my garden, sewing room or kitchen!
