March 2013

Hi all. I thought I'd better write and see who is out there.

Em is back at Uni now. It was lovely to have her home for 3 months break. James is into yr 12 now.
Georgie has been well really. Nothing changed much and medication-wise, she is still on all the same things.
She is still growing and will be fifteen in July.

The fund raiser for research into childhood epilepsy through Children's Medical Research Institute has gone quite well. I haven't heard the final figure but last time I spoke to them a month or so ago they had reached $120k of the $150k target.

Work for Greg has been very hard the last few months as he has watched so many good colleagues leaving the dept of Agriculture. One wonders what will happen to Agriculture.

We had a nice visit from an older fellow yesterday who came to pray for Georgie.
We still often wonder whatever went wrong.

We had some special moments with Georgie on the weekend - just giving her a cuddle and she was smiling at us and looking happy. It is nice to know that in some way at least at some times she can feel love.
Ange was reading about babies in orphanages and the ones who were shown love grew well but those who weren't could never thrive. It shows us that the capacity to feel love goes beyond cognition (I guess any mum knows that).

We had four inches of beautiful rain up here and it has transformed the country side. It was starting to look very droughty.
Farmers are happy with the dry summer because it means no weeds but then some timely autumn rain.

Well cheerio for now.


  1. Hi Greg,
    I'm still checking in :)

    I'm glad to hear Georgie is well, but shocked that she's 15. Where did that time go!?

    Hope Em enjoys Uni and James Yr 12. A big year for him.

    I suppose we've been at the coast almost 5 years, but I forget how long it's been.

    We went out to Condo last week (before the rain) and it was looking dry too. I hope there's a good season. It's been such a long time.

    The ag situation is terrible. I can't quite believe it can be done so stealthily, and Paul's situation was awful. I hope things work out with you, Greg.

    No one at Berry is very happy. I've had no casual work for 18 months, so ag's pretty much gone down here. Lucky I have other work!

    Hope Ange is still enjoying some teaching.

    My thoughts are with you all.

  2. Hi Greg,
    Woe! God sure is in control .... was going to check in with you tonight, so it was lovely to see all your news.
    Your little family is growing up and so pleased you all enjoyed your time with Em at home..... and James' last year at school ... I just know he would be applying himself very studiously (!!!!!).
    Still praying for you re your job and must be very disheartening see friends and workmates moving on, and was only thinking of Ange the other day when discussing my volunteer work at the hospital. Your little princess must be quite difficult at times to move around for her daily needs.
    Now, to our Georgie ..... so wonderful to hear of her reaction to your loving care and cuddles at times. Still, I can understand the very human capacity to ask what happened.... each Easter the question and thoughts enter my head, so, no doubt, memories flood back for you all. So thankful for the gentleman who came to pray .... even thought you know so many of us still pray, God is wonderful to show you so 'in the flesh' so to speak.
    Enough now .... my continuing love to you, and prayers for you all, especially as I wait for our Lord God's healing hand on Georgie,

    luv2uall as always,
    in His Perfect Love

  3. I meant WOW! not woe ..................... :-(

  4. Six years??????????
    Especially thinking of you this Easter Time ...... praying as always..........

  5. Hi Greg, Ange and Family, It's the Tewantin branch of Georgie's prayer chain here.....we pray each and every day for you all....and of course you are all foremost in our minds at Easter.....God Bless you xxx Sian, Graeme, Talitha (now 11 1/2) & Mum
