Do you have a Purpose in Life?

I asked myself this question many times over the years.  When I was young I believed it would be to have a family and be a mother.  When that didn't happen I had to re-think hard. Unfortunately emotional stuff got in the way and I couldn't see a way forward for many years.   Its [...]

Volunteering at Home For All

Sitting here on a rainy, windy Saturday in March I think back to last week when I was in Lesvos volunteering at Home for All which I talked about in my previous blog.  It really was an amazing week albeit I had little idea of what I was going to experience apart from blogs by [...]

Home Is Where the Heart Is

This month I've been thinking a lot about homes and what they mean.   Our homes are very important and should be a safe and happy place, a foundation where you can relax and restore. During my visit to Tanzania last November I met my sponsor child who lived in a small mud hut with [...]

All I want for Christmas

When I was young I had a dream of the perfect Christmas.  I wanted a beautiful home in the country with roses round the door, four children and lots of cats and dogs.

So the day finally came on 10th November for my trip with World Vision to see my sponsor child Alyahaji in a rural community of Kisiriri in Tanzania. I had been so excited since I had been invited to go and apparently there were over 75 people who applied and only 8 of us were [...]
