Important things in life all involve family. I am very blessed to have a family that loves and cares about me. Knowing that there are people all around the world that have an interest in what is happening in my life makes all the trouble seem insignificant.
I have Aunts, Uncles, cousins and a sister that are spread right round the globe. Keeping in contact is sometimes very difficult. Computers are fast becoming the only way to see who is doing what and where.
I love to get to my computer and see a cousin or aunt from 10000 miles away has written me a letter to see how I am and tell me about the hatches and matches.
My challenge to you for the weekend - Find a family member who you haven't spoken to in ages and catch up.
This weekend is going to be one that makes those long, cold wet days in Cape Town pale into insignificance. Clear crisp days with no wind.
I wish you all a beautiful weekend and I hope you find that aunt or cousin and catch up and discover how important it is for families to have each other, no matter how far apart you are.
Today is the start of the Rugby World Cup. This will form a very important part of our family life for the next 5 weeks. My blood is green, and I will be supporting our boys as they
"Bring it Home".
