I don’t know anyone who works as hard as my oldest daughter, Jianni. She was training clients all week and now she is working 12 hour shifts at St Luke’s Hospice until Sunday. This girl just never takes a break!
So for today’s Friday Funny, I’m using a picture that she maybe didn’t want shared. But by posting this picture, I want to honour this daughter of mine for all the hard work she does and her constant service not only to humanity in general but to all of us who call her family.
We love you, baby girl! And we are proud of everything you do.

Kahlil Gibran on Love
To Kahlil Gibran, love was more important than anything. Of all poets through the centuries, he was maybe the one who knew best how to paint love in words.
On this Valentine’s Day, let’s celebrate love the way Kahlil Gibran saw it. Not only to take from our relationships but to willingly and joyfully bleed for it. So we can sleep with a prayer for our loved ones in our hearts and a song of praise on our lips.
This past weekend we celebrated Australia Day. It was … Read more
