About Me

South Africa
My husband, Brett and I live in beautiful South Africa and have been blessed with the most precious family. We have 2 very beautiful and brave daughters, Tianna and Angelee and a very precious little boy called Zac who touched our hearts forever in his 1 day here on earth. We never would have imagined that we would have to live this side of Heaven without our sweet boy who was born with half a heart, but every day Jesus carries us through and is teaching us more than ever how to live, laugh and love fully. A year and a half later, our faithful Great Restorer graciously blessed us once again with another son ... our beloved Gabriel ... a ray of sunshine in all our lives! This blog has been a place where I have been able to journal my journey through loss, hope and choosing to live a life rich in love.

Moments of Sheer Delight

I had one of those days ... you know those ones when nothing seems to cheer you up?! I have had my neck in a brace with such a sore neck for days. The Chiropractor has tried to click it into place, the physio has tried to manipulate it, they've x-rayed it and all I can see is my "Christmas budget" flying out the window while the bills pile up and they just can't work out why the heck it is so sore. Anyway ... after gulping back the payment for the x-rays that revealed NOTHING ... I just kinda sat back and had a good old sulk ... and then I bumped into the loveliest little blog that brought a smile to my face ... it's called "Sweet tea and biscuits". Well it did the trick for me. It inspired me to take my stiff-sore neck off into the kitchen and whip up a yummy batch of comfort peanut butter-choc-chip cookies. Sigh!!! Nothing beats the smell of cookies baking in the oven. In no time I could feel the edges of my mouth tip up into a little tentative smile ... and when they were finally out the oven ... Miss Jan found her giggle again :-) 

They may not look picture perfect... but boy of boy ... with a yummy cuppa tea on the side ... I almost didn't want to share ;o)

But being the good and kind mommy that I am ... I whipped up a BIG enough batch to share with my precious little darlings. Just look at those cookie-crumble faces. It's enough to melt the tension out of any old stiff neck!!
