five months on-remembering

thanks to an amazing friend we have this video as a memory to a most unexpected new years eve. thank you so much Jen.

if you have a few minutes you might like to watch the talents of my beautiful gift of a friend Jeni as she videos 'a day in the life' - a once a month video project she is doing for her family. this day they were coming down from Brisbane to spend the day at limpinwood with us and celebrate the new year. the day took a turn which ended up with Matthew in hospital for just over 3 weeks and me trying to manage 6 children on my own made particularly harder because of our 2 month old twins who were still feeding through the night.
five months on and matthew is well on his journey of rehabilition, he has a brace which he only needs to wear occasionally now and is doing physio and pilates, but is still off work and will be for another 3 months as he works on reaching a full recovery.

how simple it is to see that all the worry in the world cannot control the future. 
how simple it is to see that we can only be happy now. 
and that there will never be a time when it is not now.
