Through Children's eyes - the World is new and every day's a fresh surprise.
Written for the International Year of the Child, the Song "Through Children's Eyes" has always stayed with me - especially as I watched my own children grow and encouraged them to see the world around them and the beauty of God's creation.
Today I received a photograph -
this time, it was her time to show me.
First snowflakes on the rail outside the window- captured with a macro lens.
What DO you do when one of your children rings to tell you, that they have just been offered their dream job - BUT it is in another country?
You do a lot of research,
ask a lot of questions
Give them all the support they need
You make an Aussie themed quilt*
(and new Bucket Bag)
... Of course!
It has been quite the roller-coaster ride here.
In the last 3 months we have gone from "Now what? I don't know what is next."
to "I've got my Visa - is this REALLY happening?".
Tonight we waved Good-bye
- see you in 12 months.
*My utmost thanks and appreciation goes to Carol from 'Sewn 'n Quilted' for squeezing me in to her Christmas Quilting list at the last minute so that DD's Quilt would be finished in time - She is going to need it!
