#thissundaylife is a #blessingway for a very beautiful family.
A day of stories, love, rituals, tears, good energy, memories, wishes and more love.
I first met this girl on
August 6, 2007 at this concertÂ and then a few days later we were piled in a red Land Cruiser heading up to Noosa for an adventure. A 20hr adventure up the coast which was a great time.
6 and a half years later, we’ve all been through a lot. Â This girl is a mumma, with a wee babe due very soon.
I made hummingbird patty cakes with cream cheese icing from the
Crabapple Bakery cookbook to take along for the the blessing way.
Finally a front on of that marvellous belly.
A blessed belly, waiting for a rainbow baby to come earth side.
with breakfast at @littlepawpaw for Matthew’s birthday.
It isÂ halloumi and avocado for meÂ
and a Brat for Matthew.
#thisSundaylife is a bbq dinner on the verandah.
It is answering “What that?” questions from the toddler next door.
It is racing out on to the street when the colours turned.
A morning spent on the carpet building pig pens and houses.
Pig pens/houses because a little girl with golden hair has been hearing of the three little piggies and we had to build houses that would be safe from the big bad wolf.
The vigil hour has passed.
A light still burns to #LighttheDark
I found it quite fitting that my #goodreads quote of the day for today is this one by #ArthurSchopenhauer “Compassion is the basis of morality.” Words of truth.
Reza, you live on.
R eza, I’m sorry this happened.
Reza, Â your family and friends I’m so very sorry that the government of my country failed you.
Reza, I’m sorry that you were only 23.
Reza, I’m sorry that you will never set your feet on Australian soil.
Reza, I’m sorry that you will never run red dirt through your fingers or wiggle your toes in white sand.
Reza, I’m sorry that
my government plays politics with the fear.
Reza, I’m sorry that my country continues to ignore the very basic truths of the UN Refugee convention.
Reza, I’m sorry that my government and my country continued to dehumanise up until the last breath you took.
Reza, I only hope that this at last is the wake up call that that my country needs that we need to stop allowing our government and our fellow Australians that playing politics with the lives of vulnerable people is not ok.
