Strange morning

I'm not long back from church, it was a strange morning, I've come away from the service feeling very affirmed, almost overwhelmingly so, nice but strange... And then I received a phonecall from my friend Jill. I hadn't spoken to Jill for about 5 years and it was wonderful just to talk, we have exchanged e mails and letters but it's just not the same! We shared some very special times together when I was in Hastings, and it is wonderful to recall those times and the closeness we had then. I'm off out again in a minute round to Mum's place with David and maybe Ian too, then it will be time for church again...

Strange - just feeling that I have received a lot of undeserved praise in the last couple of days, some of it quite publicly(ie during the morning service) and then when I talked to Jill, she talked about the contribution I made at all sorts of levels to the Kindergartens in Hastings, and how much I was missed, and how much difference I had made. It has all made me feel very humble, because really I don't think I did anything very special, sure I tried to do my best for the children and the staff, but I really struggled and often felt I didn't make much difference to things. That's all... nice bit very strange!!

I know exactly what you mean, I really do, and I just about die at Mass when JCjnr focuses on me!

But honestly, Viv, you are amazing, you are giving up heaps of time and you are a truly wonderful giving person. I think it's great that people are honestly recognising it all!
