Hey there everyone and welcome back to another Good Morning Mondays.

I am back blogging to some extent. I’m not sure how much I will be able to do, but I am going to at least run the link up and hopefully read some of your posts. My concentration isn’t quite back yet, but it is improving daily.

Let me just say first of all a big thank you to all my friends out there who have been praying for me and my family. Thank you to Cheryl at Homespun Devotions for sharing news of my accident with you all and also to all the others that shared it as well.

I must admit the past few weeks have been very challenging and I am slowly getting back to normal.

I was at church with our two youngest children on the last Sunday in August when I went side ways down three steps at church. I was talking to a couple of friends and not paying attention and my foot slipped off the top step and crunched underneath me as I went down.

It wasn’t a very graceful fall and was terribly embarrassing and very painful. Unfortunately for me was the fact that my husband and oldest son were away (about an hours drive) at a men’s camp.

To make a long story shorter, they called the ambulance and they took me to Accident and Emergency at our local hospital. My husband arrived within the hour (after very good and fast driving by our son) and after the x-rays were taken it was determined that I had broken my leg in 4 places and also damaged my knee joint.

I spent the night in our local hospital and was then taken by ambulance down to a bigger city hospital the next morning. I was then operated on the following afternoon and they did their best to fix what I had broken.

I now have a plate and 10 screws in my upper leg/knee and a plate and 6 screws in my ankle. I actually broke both the Tibia and Fibula about the ankle and below the knee. No one could say that I don’t do things by halves.

I spent a week in the city hospital and after I had a special cast made for my leg I was able to be transferred back to our local hospital, where I spent a week before I was able to come home.

I am now in a sort of half cast which can be removed for me to exercise my leg gently. I can’t bear any weight on my leg for at least another 6 – 8  weeks and then hopefully by the end of November I can start trying to walk again.

Our church family and friends have been very generous and our freezer hasn’t been empty for 3 weeks. We have been so blessed with everyone’s help.

I am glad to be home and back with the family, although I must admit it is probably more challenging here than in hospital but being with my husband and children outweighs the challenges.

I am sure there will be plenty of posts to follow about what I have learned, but I just really wanted to let you all know what has been happening and start getting back on track.

On a very exciting note, two weeks ago our son-in-law and daughter became parents to their first son. We are now very pleased grandparents to two granddaughters and a lovely little boy.

Four generations
We are truly blessed.

Thank you again for all your prayers and for linking up each week. I look forward to reading what you have been up to these past weeks.

Numbers 6:24-26 “The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”

Blessings to you all my friends. xxxx


Hi everyone, I just thought I would take a couple of minutes to update you all on my progress and also say a big thank you to you all for your prayers.

After my fall down the stairs I spent a week in the Geelong hospital, recovering from surgery to my right leg. My husband now calls me his bionic woman because of the plates and screws in my leg.

I have now been in our local hospital for nearly a week, and am now able to toilet and shower myself , which is fantastic.

I am now just waiting on a wheelchair and I should be going home tomorrow. I can’t wait, although I don’t believe that it is going to be 100% easier at home, it will just be better to be back together as a family again and start to get some routine happening.

I want to thank you all for your prayers and thoughts and comments during this time. I have felt the comfort of these prayers surrounding me, although not all things went to plan the past couple of weeks I know that God is in control and that He will bring good from this situation, some we are seeing already, some we may never know.

When I get home this week I will post more and I hope to have Good Morning Mondays back up this coming Sunday.

Blessings to you all my dear friends and once again thank you.

BLESSING UPDATE: our third grandchild was born late last week, we now have 2 granddaughters and a little grandson. We are so very thrilled and feel extremely blessed.


Where’s Terri???

To all of the faithful and lovely readers of this blog, and followers of the popular “Good Morning Mondays” Link-up…  

I’m sure that many of you have been wondering where Terri (aka: my Mum) has been this last week.  She is known for her promptness and consistency here in this space and has so many beautiful relationships and connections with many of you.

Mum (Terri), had a very unfortunate fall on Sunday morning last week, resulting in four complex breaks to her right leg.  Due to this, she has been in hospital (three hours away from home) all week and undergone surgery and all the difficulties you can just imagine this has brought.

She has asked me to update you all and let you know that she won’t be gone long.  Mum is hoping to be able to bring back the Link-Up this coming Monday, God willing.  I’m sure she will love reading your latest inspirations, as they have so often blessed her in the past (and me also, through her!).

Mum also specifically asked me to thank Cheryl Smith from Homespun Devotions for her beautiful, tear-invoking post; honouring Mum and seeking prayers for her.  Cheryl, your words and resulting comments touched not just Mum, but Dad and myself also.  Thank you so very much!!  (PS: I would have loved to taste the cake if it could have happened:))

Thank you all for your prayers, thoughts, love, kind words and also for your incredible friendships you have given and shared with my Mum in the past.  I’m inspired by this community and in awe of the place Mum has been able to create, by God’s grace, for us all to ‘have a cuppa’ together.

Love to you all.

Until the better writing, Terri returns…
