Thank you everybody for your thoughts and messages! I am back home since this morning and very tired as we took the train which transported our car at the same time. During the night somebody tried to break in our compartment but I woke up and managed to close the ‘security lock’ again (which had been opened from the outside!)

Thank you everybody for your thoughts and messages! I am back home since this morning and very tired as we took the train which transported our car at the same time. During the night somebody tried to break in our compartment but I woke up and managed to close the ‘security lock’ again (which had been opened from the outside!) The train staff didn’t seem interested in my observations at all (I had seen two Person who fot off at the Next station and the personal told me it was impossible that they tried to get in our compartment because they got on at the last station and got off at the Next one!!) Anyway, afterwards I didn’t sleep any more.
During our holidays the internet connection was not always good and sometimes inexistent as we were in the mountains. I had some health problems and I am worrying again … Tomorrow school is starting and there are so many other issues to do for me. Also, I should go to hospital soon but I wanted to wait. Now I have ‘new’ problems and don’t know how I am going to go on with the health issues. I only know that my husband will have much to do in the job and especially on the beginning of a school year there are many things to do for the parents, and new informations as my younger son is starting highschool.
I think I need some more from God as I am a bit desperate inside. If someone prays for me I will be very grateful! Thank you!
Excuse me for the typing errors!
I wanted to say I need some more help from God! And from friends maybe as the Word for the Day says?
Sorry, I tried to get through with a longer post & photo but it didn’t work! Have to try another time becausecI am too tired now!
Thinking of you, especially Manda & Aine with dog worries and Anna – thank you for your post full of new perspectives in the daily question!
Be well everyone! U.
I am thankful for reading Manda’s fantastic news about healing!!! You seem to be right back in your ‘normal’ life when I read your posts. That’s great!! As Pilgrim says, may your healing continue!
Pilgrim, thank you for your prayers for my family! We are on holiday now and will be back in september when school starts. Before leaving, we had the birthday party with my family of origin. It was a rainy day, good for most of us after the heat....
Pilgrim, thank you for your prayers for my family! We are on holiday now and will be back in september when school starts. Before leaving, we had the birthday party with my family of origin. It was a rainy day, good for most of us after the heat. Their visit was quite short, but I got wonderful birthday presents and a greeting from a friend of my sister who praid for me in Medjugorje and sent me a Franciscan cross! I do not know him (he is an Italian living in Austria) but I am moved by all these ‘coincidences’. Not only I loved my birthday presents, but also the chocolate cake which a relative made especially for us.
Pilgrim, I hope your health is getting better and your results are reassuring!
Diane, of course I thought of your birthday yesterday but wasn’t able to post. Happy birthday again! Wonderful that you spent some days with your husband and had a wonderful massage! Ahhhh! Sounds great!!
Anna, thank you for your posts and photos from Calabria. Hopefully you enjoyed your holiday! Is it continuing? I always love to see your icon!
Aine, hope you are not too busy with cleaning out and find some moments to enjoy the starting autumn season!
Mary, I hope the same for you. Haven’t seen you for awhile, but I am thinking of you!
Yesterday in a church here in a region in the country of Salzburg (called Lungau) I lit a candle for everybody. Blessings!
I love that autumn is starting, and especially where I am now differences between day and night temperatures are big. Right now in the morning we have 2 degrees centigrade (almost freezing temperature) but with the sun during the day it will be warm. Despite these differences and the cold, autumn is my favourite season! But before, the previews say that in a few days it will be very hot once more! Crazy!
Anyway, I got a wonderful present for myself on a market yesterday. A handmade wool pocho and a skirt which you wear over the trousers (called ‘cacheur’ in french), light and warm, made with a special technique and very light. Two women from a nearby tegion handicrafted it! Wonderful colours! I will wear it right now when going out to do some shopping for breakfast!
Have a wonderful day everyone!
haven’t read anything from you in here lately and hope you are doing well! (Palm, I read an answer from you to the daily question, though)
My best wishes to you, I am thinking of you both! :-))
I am desperate because my whole entry which I had almost finished has just disappeared! It is so difficult because my children, when they don’t have their mobiles or computers, are always quarreling with each other or arguing with me (for example if I am writing on my computer or phone from time to time at a moment when they may not have theirs) and this is a big challenge … OMMM!
Now my husband is on holiday and it is not better … I would like hi...
Now my husband is on holiday and it is not better … I would like him to get them engaged in cooking or other activities, but that does’nt really work. I have myself much housework to do and I seem to be the coach for everybody here, but I don’t want to do that any more.
Ok, as I am short on time let me just say THANK YOU for all your birthday wishes!!
Diane, best wishes and congrats to you, too, although you only mentioned that you had the same birthday month, but I don’t know if you celebrated already or not …
Manda, wonderful that you are at home, have the help of many lovely friends and are getting better and better! I am so happy with you!!
Pilgrim, hope you will get exams results soon and I wish you that a big sigh of relief will follow!! I am praying for you!
Aine, good luck with your clearing out!! And much energy to do that !
Anna, thank you for your regular posts and enjoy the rest of your
Kevin, thank you for your good wishes and I have answered to your photo below! Wishing you a steady healing!
I am happy that autumn is coming, my favourite season of the year! Yesterday I enjoyed some time with a pilgrim friend just sitting outside in a deckchair, and she said the same thing. We seem to have many things in common …This is new for me also! Having a friend … and just enjoying myself together with someone else (who is a woman above all). I think I need some female energy when I live with 3 persons who are so different in some ways … and interesting in things which are so strange for me!
Enjoy the second half of August everybody! I will try to do that, too!
This is for you Manda, as I promised! A photo taken during my holidays! Lots of love!
Dear Mary, I am glad to hear from you as I was wondering how you were! I think being online is sometimes overwhelming, especially if you have so many things to concentrate on or to get done!
It’s good to hear that you had a decent first month at school. My sons get back to school tomorrow and I think in some way it will be challenging for me, as we had already the first emails concerning school and it got me out of my ‘holiday mode’ and also it got me upset in some wa...
It’s good to hear that you had a decent first month at school. My sons get back to school tomorrow and I think in some way it will be challenging for me, as we had already the first emails concerning school and it got me out of my ‘holiday mode’ and also it got me upset in some way.
Best to you for school and house clearing, love! Ursula
Thank you Manda for your regular sharings! I admire how you always find so many things to be grateful for and name them! In difficult times, I often a lack of gratitude inside myself – this means I really don’t feel much!
That’s why you are an inspiration. I am also glad to read that you are healing more and more every day! Hugs! Ursula
Diane, that sounds wonderful!! I am glad with you that self-compassion has healed something in you which seems to have made you helpless in the past.
Actually, I think I need something of that, too! Thank you for sharing!
Good picture! Could be the answer to the question for the day, too! Energizes me!
Dear Manda, so glad about your news which are always delightful and positive!
I will post a picture of my outfit when I have one! In the meantime, enjoy what you get to see!
Oh, danke, liebe Aine! Du auch! 🌙
Dear Anna, I really hope that my prayers are helping you! Montecassino sounds interesting … Just today I visited a pilgrimage church and got water froma nearby healing fountain … Wonderful! And I have the feeling it is already helping me (I didn’t feel so well these days).
I wish that your doubts about your attitude will disappear, Anna. You are not alone! I wish you a safe travel back. See you again soon!
You’re welcome, Aine. We have something in common as I don’t have a TV …😊 But giess what my children (especially one of them) do when we are on a holiday and there’s a TV 😉 Watching American nonsense series (in German of course)!!!
As Pilgrim and Manda, I think the best idea is to stay with your own style and the house will find a buyer who loves it this way! But I imagine this is not easy with the realtor …
Whenever I enter a church at the m...
Whenever I enter a church at the moment, I think of you and all of the gratefulness community … And I love to light a candle!
PS. Your chair looks nice and I envy your animals!!
And I love what you are writing about tea! I entirely share your ideas about it!
Now I go to sleep! Good night or evening …
Amazing pictures, Kevin, and I feel your joy in rowing (that I know from your posts of course) when I look at the pictures.
So happy to read that your health is getting better although you have to wait a year for full recovery … The most important thing is that you feel good inside (which you seem to do 🙂 and are able participate in what is important and joy giving to you!
So enjoy! And be well! Ursula
have you seen the film ‘Kedi’? I have just been to the cinema and it’s for cat people … Although I do not have animals, I read about the film and decided to see it. It’s about cats living in the streets of Istanbul and people who feed them.
It’s a wonderful and poetic film! I recommend it!
I wanted to say “grateful” not “able” in the first sentence …
I imagine how you are able for the progress in cleaning out, and I have had the same project for some time. Well, I progress slowlier than you do, but it comes ‘in waves’ … I imagine your relief when another load goes to the Goodwill!
Congrats to your family of choice and the man who helped you with the truck and the sofa! It is good to give on the one hand an to receive when you need it, on the other hand … literally! That’s the flow of...
Congrats to your family of choice and the man who helped you with the truck and the sofa! It is good to give on the one hand an to receive when you need it, on the other hand … literally! That’s the flow of life, and for me it’s a great feelig when you experience it!
Raspberry is great, and we had some (grown of our own) before I went to surgery, when I came back from my pilgrimage. Each time I harvested a few of them and ate them, I imagined how they were good for me, as I heard raspberry is especially powerful against tumor cells!! So it was my self grow medicine against my illness! And I am sure it contributed to my good health! Now I have to wait for next year … I bought some a few days ago, but there is no comparison with my own ones!
Have a good week-end, enjoy making jam and enjoy your friend’s delight when you give it to him!
And think of making a relaxing pause from time to time!
