Grandparents Day!

For those in the United States of America and in Canada here is a tag which can be used to tag onto a gift for grandparents this coming Sunday the 8th of September.  I am also featuring a multiple page for leaders and teachers who would like to give to their class.

Wishing all American and Canadian grandparents a very Happy Grandparents Day!

Blessings to all Mothers


All that I am,
Or hope to be,
I owe to my Angel Mother.

Forthcoming Craft Fairs

Along with the change in weather, comes the opportunity to attend outdoor festivities and functions.  Hopefully the weather will change for the better.  For me 'for the better' would mean sunny but not too hot with a nice light breeze.  Am I asking too much?  That would be the ideal weather for setting up our craft table at the forthcoming Craft Fairs this coming weekend.  So if you don't have anywhere to go or attend, and if you live in Malta or Gozo, mark your calendar and make this a date.  

We will be setting up our table on Friday 3rd May in Merchants Street (upper part, in front of Auberge d'Italie).  You can come over anytime between 9am and 2pm.  This is being organized by The Commerce Department in conjunction with  The Malta Tourism Authority.  The theme for this fair is "Mother's Day".

Another two dates to mark are actually the following two days of this same weekend!  So Saturday 4th May and Sunday 5th May are another two days to mark!  This time the venue will be San Anton Gardens and this will be 

The 110th Annual Great Spring Show! 

For more information on opening times, how to get there, entrance fee, etc. visit...


Make it a Family Day outing! Hoping to see you all at either of or both shows!

Happy St. Valentine's Day!


Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered; it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails.
-I Corinthians 13:4-8, the Bible-

 ~~~Wishing you all much love today and always~~~

A Poem on Mum's 2nd Anniversary


Your smile was so precious,
Your words wisdom to me,
Your look so loving...
All would agree.

Your memory I treasure
So warm was your embrace,
I close my eyes and cherish
Your gentle, loving face.

Thank you Mum for everything,
You have always held the key
To love and life and all good things
You've ever done for me.

I hear your voice in the whisper
Of a soft wind, gentle and free,
Your words caressing my mind
As you lovingly hug me.

You were unique and blessed
With God's blessings so true,
I thank Him now and forever, as
For my Mum He chose...You!
