Contentment In My Life.......

It's finished.....
I sat there watching T.V and getting the
boarder on last night. When Robbie woke up this morning he
was covered in his new quilt........
I have enjoyed the slow pace of sewing and then the hand stitching
at nights to get the boarder done, there is a peacefulness
that I enjoy in the rhythm of sewing.
I am glad that my contentment comes from my simple living,
not perfect by any means, but the deep joy that as
a woman I get from living the fullness of my life.
I suppose this quiet, long week- end has given me a time to reflect on my life.
Looking back I know that the times that I have been happy and fulfilled
in my life, have been those times when I have been happy
in my God
given role of Mother and wife.
This doesn't mean that I don't have a life because this is my life.
I life that I love and find contentment in.
There is a lot of people I know that think they have it better because they both work and
there house is filled with beautiful things.
But they are not happy or content to be home. I know for me I couldn't
be happy to live like this.

Life doesn't always go according to plan that's for sure. But in those times is when
I am thankful for being here in this place. To go out and enjoy my garden
or go for a walk up the paddock, or even just sit and sew in the dairy..
This is my life, and I am thankful every day for it.

Today Greg gets his results back as to how the chemo is working,
This has been on my mind these last few days
and why I have been reflecting on my life. But I know one sure thing and that is
we can and will get through this season in our
lives, no matter what today brings.....


As you can see above the finished project is a
fence like structure. Hmmmmm
not sure what you'd call it, but it is growing on me, and
it will stop the dogs from running through here
and making a mess......so yes I think I like it......

Blessings to all


  1. Yaaay, I was right! It IS a fence--and I think it looks splendid! I like your patio--it looks charming.

    I'd love to be able to be a stay-at home mom and do what you're doing. It sounds so low-stressed and peaceful. But, that's not the life God has assigned to me, so I'd better not look at the grass on your side of the fence and think it's 'greener' than mine, eh?. LOL

  2. Your Quilt looks Lovely Mandy...Love the New Fence...looks like a nice spot to stitch...Hope all goes well today for DH..

  3. Thinking of you. I am on a borrowed computer, my internet at home isn't working atm. I understand reflecting, after years with looking after kids. I do it a little.
