Along life’s road I can’t deny I’ve been deeply hurt by people I trusted and like anyone I have regrets. It takes real strength to overcome some of the most painful things in life and more often than not, years. Sadly some things can never be excorsised and so we have to learn to live with some pains and manage them as best we can.
Thankfully in life there is balance and things come along to feed and nurture our souls. When my daughter’s daughter gave birth to her daughter I almost felt reborn. When I hold her and look at her I see a beautiful pure little being who I am so blessed to have in my life, in the autumn of my years. X
Quite a busy day yesterday (and today) on my memoirsofgibraltar.com website; I’ve put a screenshot of the visitors below from yesterday.
If you haven’t visited it yet you’re very welcome to. It’s another strand of my autobiography detailing my time in Gibraltar during the 1970s and my passion for that lovely small nation. So if you love Gibraltar, or would like to know a bit more about her just click the link and come on in. Alan X 🙂
…..put your mind to it and it can be ‘every’ day.
After being off sick for a couple of weeks I had a lovely surprise birthday parcel from colleagues when I returned to work which turned out to be a scented garden candle and a thermal mug for when I have coffee in the garden. I hadn’t realized how well they knew me – unless they’ve been having a sneaky look at my website here and realized I love sitting in the garden. They’re such a great bunch they’re welcome here anytime x Thanks guys x
Born on 3 April 1992 to the sound of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody my little granddaughter Bubbles brought blessings into my life and has blessed me ever since. Happy 22 birthday my Bubbles with my love always from your devoted Gandad x x x
…it’s because there’s something badly lacking; and if you don’t know who this lot are be thankful you weren’t born in the fifties. Those of us who were survived because they left us no choice but to laugh in the face of whatever was thrown at us.
(Every one a hero – Thanks guys).
