A bad start to the week!


I was just thinking of Indy and Sandra’s tribulations – not a good start to the week. Yesterday I went to the funeral of the dear old chap that I found dead a couple of weeks ago. Let’s hope that there are happier times ahead.

Yes there seems to be lots of sadness around at present Merfyn, including members who have lost beloved pets recently. Sadly all this is part of living and can only make us value what we have while we have it.

Someone once said 'live each day as if it was your last' its so true we must make the most of today none of us know what tomorrow may bring.

It has been a strange couple of days has it not ? Both on here and in real life ......I too shall have a funeral to go to soon.

But that's bytheby .... the most important thing is that Swiwol's Ok.
I feel so much for B, because they're all our babies.
What more can I say ?

Was it not Ben Franklin who said "In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes."
Disturbingly true unfortunately...but as fellow Goyers and gardeners....let us accept the rain in our lives -and look upwards to the sunshine so we can't see the shadows!
The GOY community is a great one and a
very supportive one....I have been deeply impressed by the sincerity and generosity that is shown....along with all the smiles along the way.
I am sure we all wish those of you with extra burdens right now that the will of God never take any of you where the
Grace of God will not protect you.

I agree with what's been said - value what you've got while you've got it.
