Our friend, Jacob and Grace has been staying with us for a month now, we really enjoyed having them at home. We'd been praying for the Lord's will to be done in their life regarding the decision to move here to England. This friday will be our last day with them.
On the other hand, the Kruppas, our American church friend, decided they'll return back to States by end of August. It's always hard to see some of your good friends leaving, but I am rest assure someday there will be no more tears and goodbyes.
On the other hand, we are going to see Bristol Balloon Fiesta this weekend. The weather forecast said it going to be SUNNY! That's rare, and especially for a year long awaited event this called a double blessing!
We'll choose a simple and small Bed and Breakfast to stay in Bath, and hopefully we will be able to catch a glimpse of this beutiful historic town as well.
(Stay tune for the pictures next week!)
And I finally had time to edit my pictures from Crete!!! I know it's been ages, but I have no mood of seeing sea and sunshine picture when the weather outside gloomy and sad. Anyway, since this weekend it's going to be sunny, I editted some outdoor swimming picture in Axos hotel, Rethymnon, Crete.
We just bought that crab float ring for 5 Euro in convenient store. Aaahhh... things are so cheap in Greece compared to UK. Wondering whether I should spend my retirement here.
And if you are just wondering about my blog banner. Stay tuned, I'll be sharing more :-)
If you have time to read more, here you go a good read from "Karen Cheng". I absolutely love this entry. These are some snippets of it.
I sterilised my bottles. I wiped toys before I gave them to my child. Swaddled
him before putting him to sleep. Sang songs to him. And I waited 6 months (to
the day) before I fed my baby solids – of course, following the recommended
schedule of introductory foods.
Bringing up a child was like running a small
business. I was constantly thinking, thinking, thinking, planning, planning,
planning and organising EVERYTHING.
I knew a lot of women like me, so I guess
I thought it was all quite normal. And don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved
it! Having all that knowledge really empowered me as a mother.
those early days, I met a mother who just had her third child. We became friends
and as I got to know her, I realised that she was an incredible mother, yet she
was doing everything differently!
In particular, she seemed to disregarded
all “the recommended blah”.
