I've just had the most wonderful mini break this weekend... so restful and fun. I spent quite some time in the car alone driving to each destination with loads of time to think and I guess the one word that sums up how I'm feeling today after all my thinking would be 'thankfulness'.
So it's Valentine's Day today and despite the fact that I think every day should be a day where we 'love one another'... I do want to thank those people who love and accept me for who I am - I am ever so thankful for each one of you... it can be a difficult day for those of us that do not have a significant other in our lives... but I am constantly reminded that I really am never alone, for the Father in heaven promises to be with me always and He has blessed me with some extraordinary people in my life that encourage and care for me.
I dedicate this piece 'Extraordinary' to a dear Christian lady, Anna who shaped my life in some very significant ways when I was a young teacher. She has had a very difficult path to walk in the past number of years, but I can picture her now rejoicing in heaven with her Lord and Saviour. Thank you Anna for being a true blessing to me and so many others.
