Saw this on 2Peas today, just what I needed

When people make you cry

When people make you cry, forgive them
For they are the losers in the end
They have missed a chance to encourage
A truly wonderful friend.

When family makes you cry
It is really sad to say
There's nothing you can do
If they are prone to be that way!

Just love them anyway
And make it a point to be
Always the first with love
At any opportunity!

And even if it seems to be
A losing battle to you now
You will be the winner in the end
Some day, somewhere ...somehow!

Never rush to be the one
Who has the cutting remark
But rather be the one to rush ahead
To help heal a hurting heart!

I know, I know...

...this is bad! I'm supposed to update often. I thought at least once a week and I didn't even manage once a month just recently. So trying to catch up.
What happened in July:
- I taught 3 classes by the sea in Umhlanga at Scrap 'n Patch. Love being there even though it was a quick fly in and fly out.
- Winter got colder!
- We had Rolland & Heidi Baker stay with us for the Father's Love Conference. Such a blessing!
- I went to a kiddies birthday party! Took little Talitia - she was so cute.
- Made a spur of the moment decision to go to Mozambique for 3 days to visit Arco Iris - The Baker's children centre.
Been spending lots of time with "our" children from Footprints Children Centre. It's so awesome to be a part of their world. Nkosi has almost got the word "aunty" right!
And now it's August and the year will be over * just like that!
