Tomorrow we are off to Hamner for 5 days, then to Kaikoura till the end of the week. I am so looking forward to it. We have just had such a hectic few weeks, with market day, showbiz and new carpet. It will be great to sit in the hot pools, go for walks and just spend uninterrupted time with my family.
Family is hugely important to me. Recently I have been rather alarmed by all the reports about bird flu in the paper. It is so scarey to think something like this may come to New Zealand. I am going to protect my family as much as possible, I have disposable gloves and I plan to buy masks. But honestly, it is not much that I can do, except pray to God to spare our world from this impending catastrophy. It really makes you realise that the people about you are so important to you, and how you really don't want to part with any one of them.
So I am going to really enjoy this time with my husband and kids, and remember that God has all our times in His hands, and to make sure that my priorities are in line with His!!
