A vulnerable child?

The term ‘vulnerable’ has been throw around a lot in recent months. As a global community we have banded together, locked ourselves away, watched as businesses have come to a halt, in a combined effort to ensure that the ‘vulnerable’ in our society are given a chance to live. When I speak of a taking…

Dear mum in detention

Dear mum in Detention Happy Mother’s Day. Today as my children wake me up with their buttery fingers and vegemite smeared faces, I will think of when you woke your children up to get on a boat you weren’t sure any of you would survive, because you knew that it was your only hope for…

Compassionate kids

I have good kids. No actually, I have Great kids. Kids that make me proud so often. Today I overheard Adley talking with his Grandma about what they could do with some extra money they were hoping to win from a photo competition, Adley says, ‘maybe we can give it to the people who don’t…

Are you a pinner?

Writing on this blog has been interesting. I started it years ago, left it for a while and then found it again at the beginning of this year. I have let myself be vulnerable, probably saying to much about myself and my thoughts on certain things but I hope I have helped someone to smile,…

Busy Busy and about to get busier!

I read something once about how when someone asks you “How are things going?” Our general response is…’busy’. Whatever I was reading was talking about being cautious with the word busy…that we use it to often and that it makes others feel like the should do more, or that you have no room for relationships…I…

What can you do…

Today we helped women on the other side of the world 🙂 We connected to other mum’s who have had long labours, who have endured mastitis and swollen breasts. Mums who have had sleepless nights with teething babies and kissed dirty knees to make it all better. A mum, who is just like me, who…
