Today I had promised to help rake up stones around a memorial that is being re-aligned. I know I would have come home with blisters despite wearing gloves. I might be missing out on good company and productive fun, but I think I am on a winner for now!
Thought for the day: On grief: "Grief is the price we pay for love"
"My grandmother once said that grief is the price we pay for love. Here, today, we love and we grieve." (Prince William quoting Queen Elizabeth II in his speech to the people of Christchurch).
And a thought for every day:
He aha te mea nui o tenei ao? Maku e kii atu, He tangata, he tangata, he tangata!
You ask what is the most important thing in this world? I will tell you: It is people, it is people, it is people!
Today I am grateful for the new hope that comes with spring.
