ANZAC DAY, 2011.

Today, Australians around the country have paused for a minute's silence to remember those who died in defence of the nation at Anzac Day services around the nation.

ANZAC day, April 25, is a national public holiday here in Australia and it is thought by many to be one of the most solemn days of the year. This year it will be marking the 96th anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during WWI.

Today we remember not only the original Anzacs who died on the 25th of April 1915, but every one of our service men and women who have served and died in all our wars, conflicts, peacekeeping, disaster relief and humanitarian assistance missions.

They shall not grow old, as we who are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
we will remember them.


Lest We Forget

Blessings and best wishes always,

Natasha

Taking baby steps back into blogging....

Thank you so very much to you, my dear blogging friends, for your gentle and loving words of support and friendship. Your advice and wisdom has helped me more than you can imagine.

When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps. 
Confucious



Since taking this little blogging break I realized that I was not blogging for the reasons that inspired me to blog in the first place. When I started my blog it was for me to give thanks for the people and things that make me happy...





For each new morning with its light,For rest and shelter of the night,For health and food, for love and friends,For everything Thy goodness sends. Ralph Waldo Emerson



I started this blog to take time out of my day to reflect on my many blessings and to find beauty in the every day....

The first step is to find out what you love – and don’t be practical about it. The second step is to start doing what you love immediately, in any small way possible.
Barbara Sher


Aunt Amelia inspired me to believe that it takes courage to make bold changes in one's life and Mya helped me realize that breaking big projects into small steps makes them do-able.


Growth is an erratic forward movement: two steps forward, one step back. Remember that and be very gentle with yourself. 
Julia Cameron 

Many of you have helped me realize that a journey of a thousand miles starts with one small little baby step.


Baby step by baby step, you have what you need right now to start moving in the direction of your happiest dreams.
Marta Davidovich Ockuly


After my holiday at the beach with my family and, more specifically, after watching a stunning sunrise, I had my blogging "aha moment!" I decided that I really do want to blog but from now on I will be doing it on my terms! 

Ideals are like stars: you will not succeed in touching them with your hands, but like the seafaring man on the ocean desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them, you reach your destiny. Carl Schurz (1829 - 1906)


No more blogging unless I want to!


Your kind words made me realize that I have invested too much time, love and into this blog of mine to just abandon it completely......


Thank you for that!
Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul. Henry Ward Beecher

So, I guess I am saying that I am blogging again and I would be thrilled and very grateful if you could hang in there with me as I begin this new blogging journey!



Best wishes always,
Natasha In Oz
