Seeing Life From Different Perspectives

A blog a day, has always keep me focused when I am working on a personal project. It keeps my spirit warm in the  "cold'  season  - Winter blues does not stand a chance! This is the reason, I am back to daily blogging. :)

Wednesday's Weee: ♡ Dutch Morning Sky

Woke up early today because mijn liefste P had to be at work before the sun was up!

New lay-out of Happy Feet in the Netherlands: 28th of October,2012,
featuring the new blog series "Friday Inspire"

Went to bed rather late though (working slowly, dilligently on back log of blogs for Happy Feet in the Netherlands - 14 months worth of running stories!), that I only offered "moral support" to the start of his day, and remained in bed before my own alarm went off at 6 am signalling the begin of my own day - first on the agenda: prepare the girls for school.

Knotwilg - Getting to Know Something Familiar

My bike key remains in the Land of Lost Things! :( The key the insurance sent us did not fit and we did not receive a return call from the bike shop upon request of a follow up on that matter. Long story short: Omi B came to our rescue, once again!  She drove the girls to school, and will pick them up again, with her car.  Over 80 y.o and she remains the core strength of the family.

I've mentioned before how it has always been hard for me to ask for help. My independent nature forces me to try as much as possible to do a lot of things on my own before I would even think of entertaining a thought of asking someone for help  A lot of life experiences later...and I have finally learned that asking for help is not a sign of weakness but an opportunity to widen your perspective in life.  P's family has helped me a lot in seeing a different perspective regarding this matter.

P like me has a stubborn streak of independence; we help each other with constant reminder that we not only enrich our lives with the people we ask for help but we teach our children that "no man is an island" and being a part of a "community" , wherever it is life may take you,  is not only beneficial for an individual but for each member of the society.
