Love shows all that is good in the here and now….


In all the daily dashing about, love comes out on top, every time.

A mobile phone message sends ‘Good luck’ lunchtime kisses from the youngest in our family, Kyla, to Emily as she nervously started another round of exams at Uni. Nothing but love pours out from this beautiful baby and it was such a happy visit with her, and her fabby Mum, Emma, yesterday.

Our hearts took pictures of a smiling Kyla, as her Grandad placed the latest hat knitted by my Mum, upon her little blond curls.

A good few rather sleepless nights built up to a major game being hosted at the community ice rink. The whole evening was a great success and the love and support from all involved was the foundation that gave rise to it.

A client called with a problem and we headed for Cheshire on Saturday. The change in plans gave us time to chat in the van, I got to see David’s beaming smile as he fixed the problem on site and we managed a surprise visit to my Mum and Dad who live in that part of the world.

After many last minute changes of plan over the last few months, we finally made it to a ‘date’ night and had dinner out on Sunday evening. Smiles.

Last night, warm cuddles and kisses from David made my bruises better after I hit the ice like a sack of potatoes. I discovered that skating towards him showing off my new moves, whilst thinking of a funny line to share with him, does indeed break my flow. Ice skating is still great fun and I’ll be back down at the rink next Monday!

At breakfast this morning sunlight shone through and the daffodil petals sparkled as we ate breakfast.

Every day is threaded with words of love, moments of understanding, supportive acts, touches of kindness, shared laughter and cuddles within our family, friends and daily contacts. May the challenges keep coming, because they show the magic moments of love within.

      Mad busy every day here and I was finding that I felt a bit lost in it all Ducky….I have pulled back and tried to get back to basics. Looking at the good things in each day helps and setting time aside to be creative. Love is what counts, everything else is just stuff. Stuff reduction and organisation going on daily here and that also helps! Thank you for your kind support as always and I hope that all is well at your end? You never say! πŸ™‚

    You are always the most uplifting read, Jane. So glad to be back on your blog again. I’m a fan of ice skating, though I haven’t been in a number of years. It’s a romantic outing, for sure. So glad you have love all around, my friend!
