“Christmas gift suggestions: to your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.”    ~ Oren Arnold

Before I head off with my family to Western Australia, in Eagle Bay which is situated in the Margaret River region, I want to thank my special blogger family.  My connection to each of you is important to me.

This is what I love about you and your blogs!

You inspire me with words of wisdom each time you share a post.

You introduce me to amazing Authors and people who change the way I see life.

Your views and comments create a new perspective to my own understanding, which gives me insight and knowledge.

You make me laugh and remind me what is important.

You guide me to live in the present and to find the lighter side of life.

Your gifts of poetry, photography, art and writing, inspire me.

Your encouragement and support of my blog means so much.

Thankyou to everyone.  I love writing and I know you all do too.  I look forward to sharing this space with you in 2016 and may your Christmas and New Year be peaceful and warm and may your connections with friends and family be joyful and fun.

This will be my new FIJI!!!
