Once you choose hope, anything is possible.

A thought....

I'm sewing less these days, but probably living life more, so I'm broadening the remit of my blog to include things which inspire me, things I've created and places I've been. I'll also share any sewing I do actually do :-)

Today I was inspired by this (there are variations on the bird in the first section, this is the Australian version).
A man whispered, “God speak to me!”
and a kookaburra laughed. But the man didn’t hear.

So the man called out, “God speak to me!”
and thunder rolled across the sky. But the man didn’t listen.

The man looked around and said, “God let me see you!”
and a star shone brightly. But the man didn’t see.

Despairingly the man said, “God show me a miracle”
and a life was born. But the man didn’t notice.

Desperate now, the man said, “Love me God’,
and his wife smiled at him. But that was so normal, he missed it.

Feeling completely alone he whispered into the heavens,
“Touch me God and let me know you are here!”
God reached down and touched the man.
But the man brushed the butterfly away and went sadly on his way.

Sewing less but living more - that's a nice trade off!
