light reflected ….

Light Reflected – words by Iona

I see light reflected x3

In the glow of springtime sun
In the smile of wonder
There is truth and there is peace
Reaching to me from heaven
As we walk across this hill
We’re in orbit spinning round the sun
Around the sun
Around the sun

Light of light eternal
Light my way for me
Light of light eternal
Light my way for me

Gazing through a veil of tears
Blurring the starlight glow
Holding my hands up to t he sky
Saying my silent prayer
As I walk into the night
I see light reflected from the sun

something heart warming about …

seeing young people achieving against the odds and making positive contributions to their peer groups, communities, classes and schools.

As you can guess, I have been to something this morning that involved giving out some awards to some young people. And yesterday it was great to be at the launch of an art project that has involved some of the teens I work with. Great stuff.

Anyway, sat at desk, munching on toast, as I was late up this morning surprise surprise. On with the paperwork it is!

so …

I would like to make clear, the wine drinking and food eating last night is in NO WAY related to todays dramarama as recorded below. End of.

Anyway, nice lazy night. Had dinner cooked for me 🙂 Always the best way. Sat in front of the tv now, about to watch the wonderful world of Hotel Babylon. I have just caught up on the Apprentice which my housemate taped for me last night. What an interesting bunch of people eh!

Anyway, as always when I have lots of emails to do, and paperwork and other stuff, such as house tidying and washing, here I am sat surfing the web, writing an aimless blog and trying to decide when to take a day off. I was going to have today and then realised both this morning and this afternoon were full. Hmmm …. tomorrow is busy, as is Sat, Sun, Mon, Tues, Wed, and Thurs. Maybe my day off is when I go on HOLIDAY NEXT WEEK! HURRRRAH!!

what a dramarama …

So, all went swimmingly well last night. Had a superb evening with P, J and E, with great food, and gorgeous wine. Amazing company and all round a fab night, hurrah.
Had a lovely friend this morning , on arrangement ring me, to ensure I manage to get up. I cant work out how to put links in my blog, so just find Chelleys blog on the wibsite to find out her version of events. Anyway , I got up, and out, and to my morning meeting, arriving only 5 minutes late, hurrrah again!
Managed to leave quite promptly, and figured, get a train back, grab lunch on way, do couple of hours of to do paperwork pile which increases and then head to the launch of an art project that has involved some of our young people. All was going soo well. Sat on train, listened to music, made few phone calls, as you do. Then I felt ill. Oh yes, not a great feeling being on the train and all. Lightheaded, slightly panicky, breathing a little bit different to how you normally do. Took the ever helpful inhaler which didnt seem to be that helpful, and then almost passed out as I got off the train. I thought, IT HAS TO PASS, nipped to the station loo’s, and as I made my way back up the esalators, again felt like I would faint. I managed to during this time feel really disorientated and panic. Not good really. Saw a policeman type looking standing so pretty much fell over him. He was quite nice, dragged me to the first aid room, dont think he was to sure what to do to be honest. I couldnt breathe. I felt faint. Wasnt to sure where I was. Hmmmm …
Want to hear more?
Anyway, not much more to tell to be honest, some helpful other policeman /community support office, whatever they are turned up, and he was slightly more helpful, doing the whole “breathe” and holding a paper bag and all that kuffufel. At some point they decided to call 999, and summons an ambulance, hence the dramarama even more so than before. Anyway, in come the paramedics. Very nice. Quite funny. Knew what they were doing Hurrah times 3 as there were three of them for some unknown reason. I said I would big them up on my blog tonight, so here it is. Thanks.
I have to say, for all those who moan about the NHS and all that (and , no I didnt go to the hos. Everything worked out, I could breathe again, didnt feel faint, pins and needles went, and life went on as normal) the paramedic people were good. And didnt make me feel stupid even though I totally felt it and was quite embarrassed.

Anyway, a bit of an essay, but what a drama eh!

every time you smile …

Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing – Mother Teresa

Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired –

Psalm 121

I look up to the mountains— does my help come from there?
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!

He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber.
Indeed, he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps.

The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade.
The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night.

The Lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life.
The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.
