a miracle...





Well here i am trying to think of something to pist.


my life is boring...

We went to my mums this afternoon to replace two fluorescent light fittings in her house, joy...

managed to offend my brother (pft, how hard was it) because he thinks we have the shits with him because we didnt ring him and ask him to come and help. WTF?? Truth being, if we had of rang him to come, he would have got the shits because we asked him.... damned if we do, damned if we dont.... rather do without the whinging in my face and let him blow his steam where i cant see him.....

ahhhh.... you can choose your friends......... you know the rest.


oh yes the miracle....

hang on - gotta go and read a kid a bedtime story....

back again.. nearly fell asleep myself, my eyes are hanging out of my head - not a good look i assure you.

the miracle - has been on my mind a lot today.

did you notice the flower at the top of this post. It is a Hong Kong Orchid. I have two of these trees in my garden. They are about 40 metres apart. they are not flowering now. i watch them because they are the most exquisite flower i have seen so i know when they are flowering. the picture doesn't really do it justice, should have searched longer for a better picture but am too tired..... on with the story!

i came home the other day and found a single flower, right in the middle of the path to my door, about halfway between the trees. How did it get there. they are not flowering. i checked. i also checked the web to find out when exactly it flowers and it flowers from november til march. it is the end of april. and how did it get there - i cant imagine what direction the wind would have been blowing to blow one there had they even been flowering. yet here it was, fresh as ever. just sitting there. in my path.

its a miracle. a gift. why......? i don't know. have been pondering this muchly today.

a gift.

i am blessed

i am going to bed now as i am totally stuffed and i have to do canteen tomorrow (joy of joys). am going to break the news to the lovely canteen supervisor that i cannot do mondays anymore because i am going to be going to arty farty classes. assuming that 'chell doesnt bar me.

well some more deep and meaningfuls have been flooding my mind and i have to go and think. some things are falling into place methinks. good.

nighty night
xoxo

Tis beautiful indeed. One of my lovely oldies, Jess, is often stopped still by the beauty and perfection of flowers. "God's miracles", she calls them.
