This morning they could barely lift themselves out of bed.... their stomach and chest muscles were 'ouch' !

Below is my cousin ,Lisa, and her miracle baby Joshua!

When we moved to Hillcrest in Dec 2007 I was very excited to move back to the province of my birth and upbringing. We had lived in Johannesburg for 9 years and were keen to get the kids out of the big city environment and to reconnect with family. Our goal was,(and still is)to emigrate, although I have learnt from the past that ......... we plan, but God ultimately orchestrates!
SO....... we are here for now! How long 'the now ' is I do not know. MrGee is flying every week to Johannesburg and back. Of course this is not ideal. Miss Tanzi cries for her Dad some nights! The boys don't get to see MrGee for almost half the week, and I find myself taking the role as mother AND father!! And when MrGee comes home I have to relinquish the role of being father. This can be difficult!
Mmmm.............. I have always believed that we(as a family) are back in Hillcrest for a reason. My prayer is that God reveals to us His plan for us HERE . Then at least we will have something to hold on to when things get tough!

This Christmas is going to be a memorable one! Never before have I 'hosted' Christmas! So at the tender age of 29... I mean 39 ..... I am looking forward to having alot of my family over for a delicious feast and some great fellowship!
Normally I would have made fun of my Northern Hemisphere friends who are enduring Christmas in the snow with icy temperatures while we enjoy glorious days of basking in the sun! I will not be doing this year as we are experiencing a cold and VERY rainy Christmas period. Mist and drizzle have become my daily friends!!
