Collecting the Memories of a Life: An Introduction to Writing Your Memoirs

Filed under Memoir Space

Have you ever thought about writing your memoir? “Nope, it’s way too hard,” you think. That is exactly what I thought, too, until my 85 year old mother unintentionally gave me the nudge I needed. My mother has always been quite secretive about her life, never one to share stories. On a visit several months […]

Gently reminding us of the simple pleasures in life: Nick and Liesl

When the cherish theme was first announced, I admit to having some trouble choosing an artist that would adequately reflect all the things I cherish in my life – my family, my babies (The Pupstars aka two dogs), friends, good health etc. Little did I realise at the time that the universe would provide me […]

Many of us said it! “…to love and to cherish, from this day forward…” Or at least some variation of those words were part of many of our wedding ceremonies. So having said those words some time ago (in my case 35 years!), when did you last catch yourself cherishing him/her?  And even if you’ve […]

I had a wonderful girl’s morning out with my mother and sister last week. My mother wanted to take me shopping for a special gift for my birthday (we just hadn’t had time before now:), and she knew exactly where she wanted to take me. As we walked into the shop I had to stop […]

Green Fingers: A Cherished Garden

At the end of this month my grandparents move out of the house that’s been their home for the last 45 years. It’s a place that’s so familiar to me – a place that has always felt like home. The kind of place that when you walk through the front door, you’re enveloped with that […]

Spiritual Cherishing

When I hear the word ‘cherish’ I get a strong feeling that is hard to describe. To me this word is the epitome of a spiritual relationship, particularly with a romantic partner. From the Oxford dictionary, ‘cherish’ means to treasure, to care for, or to protect which are all valuable and valid descriptions as a […]

Last week we buried one of our own. She was a beautiful and well loved seventeen year old girl who went to school with my children. She and her father were killed in a tragic accident on the highway. Her name was Jaime. In a community as small as ours you can feel the impact […]

The supreme act of generosity: Listen!

Filed under Serenity Space

As I prepared to write Serenity Space for February, I had no idea what I was going to write. Possibly something about the importance of loving me, first. But the words would not come. I was well and truly stumped, blocked and out of words. I asked for divine guidance. I made a fresh cup […]

I’m not quite sure I’m ready for January to be over! My month of holidays, birthdays and celebrations has drawn to a close, school has returned for another year and I’m firmly back in the world of routine and reality. How did that happen so fast? Lucky for me, I am living a life I […]
