Christmas Blessings 2008

If, as Herod, we fill our lives with things, and again with things; if we consider ourselves so unimportant that we must fill every moment of our lives with action, when will we have the time to make the long, slow journey across the desert as did the Magi? Or sit and watch the stars as did the shepherds? Or brood over the coming of the child as did Mary? For each one of us, there is a desert to travel. A star to discover. And a being within ourselves to bring to life....Author unknown

I came upon this quote in Sarah Ban Breathnach's Simple Abundance...I do think that we have our own desert to travel...and oh, how different the deserts are for each and every one of us!!!...And stars to discover...how wonderful and exciting!!! How this little piece just made me sit back with a few quiet reflective moments...before the last of the gift wrapping, house organizing, list checking, last minute baking...

I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year 2009. Thank You for all your visits and comments...it has been a real pleasure to get to know you!!! Many Christmas Blessings to each and every one of you...

Welcome To My World

Hello, my name is Dzintra Ingrid ... have been known as Ingrid and since our Sea Change I have started to use Dzintra ... pronounced without the D ... (but still known as Ingrid, I know, it's confusing ...)

Welcome to my world ... a journal of our Sea Change ... Mum to three wonderful children ... bringing up a daughter with a disability and seeing life through her eyes ... being a new Nanna ... photos ... inspiring quotes ... taking on a cookery course ... the odd recipe ... and trying to get some stitching done amongst all this ...
