Family Tree of Gram by Eva


Today I feel blessed by an exploration of Grandma’s family tree with Eva in order for her to be familiar with the people that she will see next week in Adelaide.  What fun history and geography!

I feel blessed by an afternoon at the shops with well behaved children.

Marnie and Gram on Christmas Day

Today I feel blessed by the memories of a passionate and committed matriarch of our family, my Grandma, who passed away peacefully this morning.

I feel blessed by a special afternoon out with Eva and Hugo.

I feel blessed by a family yoga class where I did achieve the stretching of yoga but not quite the relaxation while my two cherubs joined me.

I feel blessed by lots of book reading under the covers and an early evening on a cold, cold day.

365 Blessed – 323 – 2nd May

We feel so blessed by a day of relaxation and fun on Mololo Island.

I feel blessed by starting the day reading on the hammocks while the children played around us.


I feel blessed by a family kayak adventure to an island where Eva was able to snorkel with Andrew at the drop off of the coral reef which meant that she was able to see colourful coral and fish.  The look of joy on her face when she was describing what she saw was fabulous.


I feel blessed that we all came back after a catamaran sailing adventure this afternoon.2-11

I feel blessed that Hugo enjoyed swimming with Andrew where the fish were swimming past thus didn’t need a snorkel.

I feel blessed by a snorkelling trip to Honeymoon Island where Andrew and I saw lots of amazing fish and coral while gently moving through the warm water.


We feel blessed by watching the sun set from our beach lounges.


We feel blessed by a Fiji culture concert where Eva and Hugo dressed up and performed along with the other kids club children and other adult performers.

Today I feel blessed by a birthday party to celebrate a cute 2 year old where my children enjoyed yummy food and lots of play.

We feel blessed by the opportunity to watch the dawn service from Gallipoli telecast onto the side of the Auckland War Memorial Museum this evening.  For Andrew and I they are vivid memories of our time there 14 years ago (when we met).

Today I feel blessed by Gabby who took Eva and Hugo on an adventure to MOTAT today.

I feel blessed by a lovely quiet visit to the hairdresser.

I feel blessed to see our second butterfly newly emerged from the chrysalis late this afternoon.  I feel blessed to see the excitement of the children when they realised that the butterfly had emerged.
