My family, especially my daughters Libby and Mandy
My job
being by the sea
walking in the country
dancing in the rain
music
reading
writing (wouldn't be here if I didn't)
being with friends
dark nights by the fire with a good book and wine
long soaks in the bath
the wind through a windchime
the sun on my face
all wildlife

Hates
nothing but a few things irritate not worth mentioning


Has had to re-invent myself following the death of my husband 2 years ago and I've learned that I am a stronger person than I thought and that true friends stand by you when others walk away.

I have had to learn to do things by myself and I've made solo journeys, surprised how happy and content I can be with my own company.

My philosophy - CARPA DEUM (seize the day) - for there may never be a tomorrow

New Contest "When Fate Decides" posted


Blog Posted:9/4/2012 11:45:00 AM
Hi All

As you know my daughter has just got engaged so my thoughts now are on her wedding which will be in a local castle. 

Looking through some readings most of them have religious references that can't be used in civil cermonies.

I have been to two civil wedding ceremonies (not in church) this year where I have wrote the reading and its not easy to write something for a wedding without referring to God or heaven so I thought I would set you all a challenge.

My contest is for a poem with the first line of "When Fate Decides to bring you love" and should be suitable to read at a wedding but cannot contain any religious conatations.

I'm sure you can all do much better than me as you are all so amazing and would love to read what you can come up with - so get your wedding heads on and make me cry with your words of love.

I look forward to reading some brilliant poems

Thanks

Janette
