I love jigsaws too, I spent almost the whole of Ian's first day at work doing one!!! I think the thing I enjoy most is the challenge of solving problems, real life or otherwise...

Oh and I'd love to see a photo of the house!!

It can be one of our holiday missions!

You might have even solved my net problems if I hadn't had to rush to the airport to get my mother away (and we only got there in time for the final boarding call LOL!). Still, I think you renewed my flagging confidence just by being there for me on the phone!

I'm so glad we didn't make your Mum miss the plane, that was a bit close really... but glad to have been there, I'm only ever a phone call or an e-mail away!! If I'm home I'm always happy to "chat"!

I guess I usually think I'm on my own on this one. It's so warming to think you're there - maybe I should ask for help more often rather than getting so tied up in knots!!

We are never really alone... but I think you know that really!

When I was a student I had a poster that said:
"People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges"

And I determined way back then to be a bridge builder...don't suffer alone!!

Excellent poster! That was a good time for you to determine a postive course of action. I think I help other people but forget to do the same for me. And I sometimes picture you as a rock calming the seas around you, so your determination must have worked!! I'll have to try to do as well.

I think you are amazing in how much you give to those around you, but you need to be kind to yourself too, and value what you do!

And I sometimes picture you as a rock calming the seas around you,

Really...that's an amazing picture, painting inspiring sort of stuff, but if I appear that way, it's only because I am clinging to the only real rock that there is...
"I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand." (Psalm 40)

Thank you. I have trouble valuing what I do, because so much of it seems to end in disaster, and I swear not through my own making, no matter what other people insist. I mean, two crazy Principals in a row for starters...

-he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand
I can see you doing a painting of the rock, maybe with some hints of scripture - not exactly Colin McCahon but something in your vibrant style *g* like words swirling in the water!

Yeah two crazy principals is pretty unlucky by any one's standards.

Painting... just had to go and paint...there's picture now, not quite finished... maybe it needs those words...but if the photos are any good I shall post one to lj i a moment!!!
