Last night was an evening out for the manager and assistant manager and the volunteers of our op-shop which you all know I work in. Each second month one of is picked out of a hat to choose a place to eat at and this month was my turn...........We had a meal at the Railway Hotel in Castlemaine and it was quite nice I had trout and did not particularly enjoy it but some of the other meals look so nice there was curry, pasta, steak etc. anyway the meal is only a small part of the evening it was more about enjoying the company of those who we may not work with so much as they are on another day.
Lyn the manager is the lady in the middle in the green jumper and she is one of the nicest people you are ever likely to meet.....her compassion for others is beyond anything I have known before. wonderful lady and I thank her for my very cute case to hold papers etc. my gift for doing the night.
His passion for life no matter how things work out at time is always with much zest.
This past week Wednesday 25th was Anzac day here in Australia a time to honour those who have fallen in battle and those who returned to their home lands knowing they fought with honour for their country. Anzac day is about a particular battle they fought with very low odds of survival along side the New Zealander's but it now is a symbol of the courage and mate ship we Australian have for our country our family and our mates.
My husband in this photo wears with pride this night some of his fathers medals he got serving overseas on many USA battle ships and as a major in the Australian Army to honour his father who passed away of cancer many years ago.
His father was a mason as well and his father before him I know they would be proud of my husband because he cares deeply about those around him and takes it upon himself to be the first there should the need be known. I will just simply add here for those who feel our faith and our beliefs cannot go hand in hand with freemasonry it does stronger then you can imagine and with the belief faith holds us all together.
I do hope this finds friends around the world happy and well
Blessings to you all on this my Friday! - waiting for the rain.
