self dicipline.

One of the things many people say to me when they find out I have a lot of children is "you must be so organised". The reality is I am not. I am one of the least organised people on this earth. If I don't have a routine for the day written down many of the things I should do just don't get done.

I read a mothers rule of life a couple of years ago now. I start a new rule each year generally and review it around the middle of the year. I reviewed it recently and changed it because of family needs changing. Since implementing the rule and trying to follow it I have found that my disorganisation is really about my lack of self dicipline. It is also because I want to do what I like rather than what I should. I have to pray often, "Lord give me the grace to do what I should rather than what I want".

I realize how important it is that we run a routine here. As soon as we don't the dog and cat go hungry, the house looks like cyclone tracey has been through and I don't know where anything is. So again I resolve yes I will write up what needs to be done each day and I will do it.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
