I am home again and Peter is back at full time work.
Thank you all so much for your prayers...they mean more than I can say.
It was a long long trip back home, through many sugar cane plantations and past road repairs.
The worst thing was the burn-off's ... This is when the cane is burnt and thick smoke stifles your breath and clouds your view.
It took a day and a half to get home. Then after a good rest, some house cleaning and washing I was off again to meet with old friends.
The three of them flew up from Sydney to meet me at Mooloolaba (mid Sunshine Coast).
I have know them from forty four to almost fifty years. A long time, yet this is the first time in many years, we have come together.
What a joy! Only for three nights but every minute was a thrill.
An Aerial View....of where we stayed.
I have draw around the complex and put an X on our suite.
My friends live in New South Wales, where I came from originally.....they all called this paradise.
(I believe Heaven will be a thousand times nicer.)
The waters of the Pacific ocean are a clear Blue/Green and absolutely brilliant.

We are here waiting on a bus to take us to the next town. In younger years we would have walked, it was only about two miles.
I was contemplating dying my hair back to the original blond, we are vain creatures aren't we.
But Ray likes it natural, so here I am.
This is Kathleen... her sister was my sister-in-law, and both were as my own sisters. Our children all grew up very closely together. My children call her Zia Kathy... (Italian for Auntie).
I loved our time together..
How sweet is friendship!
The best part of all is, they are my sisters-in-Christ.
May the Lord richly Bless them and their families always.
"Love one another with sisterly/brotherly affection.
Out do one another in showing honor."

An Author since 2012 and retired Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our three little dogs. Monty (Australian Terrier,) Mille` (Toy Foxy), and Marley (Toy Poodle). Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11. Having personally experienced tough times I know, there is truely no gain without pain. South Western Sydney Area Health, Queensland Health, LATE OF ROGERSVILLE, TENESSEE and Amedysis Home Health.
