I have been deviously planning ahead ofcourse and there are going to be some absolutely amazing new blends ahead ! some that will blow your mind !!!!! Even “Smart Bunny Blends” that will be all Australian made and blended again. It is going to be very , very Exciting !!
I also have to say that for the first time in my life, and just after saying in my last blog I would never want to have a birthday again!, I have been given to most amazing day EVER!
Just goes to show..never say never..(Bond was right..lol)..
Anyhoo, the day was filled with awesome gifts from friends and wonderful cards ! (THANK YOU !!!!!) and…Paul, my hubbie, who does not believe in birthdays or gift giving, made me jump ten feet high by giving me a diamond ring ! I was absolutely blown away! I hope he didn’t sell his soul to the devil to buy the ring..lol..it fits like a glove (he had it fitted on the basis of my grandmas wedding ring I had lying about to get cleaned) and it is AWESOME!
So I was over the moon and to top it off, in the evening, we drove off to see the Hobbit, desolation of Smaug that was in the cinema. As a Tolkien fan, it is safe to say, seeing that movie in the cinema was the icing on the cake ! It was hilarious, breathtaking and what an adventure ! So , all in all, a birthday to remember ! It made me feel like an absolute Diva! lol
Mind you, I am still missing my buddy Bear very much. 2013 has been a heartwrenching year with so many up and downs. All in all, with everything I have been through the last couple of years everything teaches us something.
With every breath we take, we learn something new..but….only if we let it ! It is no use burying ourselves in grief or anger, because let’s face it, heartbreaking things happen every minute of every day. It is how we cope with these things that makes it a learning curve that we can see as a positive and make us better.
Just yesterday, somebody stopped by at the farm for a chat and was very upset. She was devastated by the death of her companion, her loyal dog in June and still she could not get over it. She was heartbroken.. It was even more heartbreaking to hear her say that somehow she blamed herself..,that was grief and loss and hurt all parcelled up in one..for no reason. If anything she took care of her dog very well, she loved it and cared for it and it was family….
Some times things just do not make sense, we dwell upon things and grieve and make up these illogical notions that even make us hurt more. It is no use! There is no logic sometimes (I know! Spock would not forgive me saying this…lol) but we have to let go and remember the good times and the fun we have had.
Remembering the good times instead of the hardships makes life easier and puts a smile on our face. On that note, let me ask you this….did you make any new years resolutions? I am sure you have.
Then ask yourself this: Have you made resolutions like “I will not do this anymore, I will not eat this anymore, or I will have less of this or that? “ , or, have you said to yourself “this year I will do more of this, I will have more in my life,I want to be more this or that, ?” It is the glass half empty or half full conundrum to which I will only reply to with the following photo of something I have embroidered for Paul to hang in his shed: div>
