Summer still lingers in the air, however the cooler nights and golden leaves remind me that autumn is here.
I have been quiet and distracted. Weeks have flown by and I have had trouble keeping up.
Our summer, filled with glorious warmth, long lazy evenings, picnics, bbq's and adventures at the ocean was suddenly tainted by the sting of loss, heartache and challenges.
A young life ended too soon  a friends mother passed away suddenly  my beautiful sister was diagnosed with breast cancer  aged parents becoming more fragile and unwell with each passing day.
Real life, yes.
Somehow, towards the end of this week I managed to find a few moments to catch my breath. As I sat and knitted 'eternity', I refected on life's challenges and blessings. I wished that some things could be different, I wished that some things could stay the same forever, I wished that the next few weeks would be filled with calm and love and creativity.
I wished for....
hearts to heal quickly  bodies to heal completely  souls to be filled strength and courage  moments of peace and dignity  respite to replace pain  smiles to replace tears  wisdom, to make the right choices  a long autumn and short winter  quiet and calm  inspiration  love.
