Review of 2016 - It is good to see how far you have come!!

I can't quite believe that we are here already and there has been so much happening that I have hardly had time to keep up.  And now we are here again launching ourselves into the new year, new beginnings, fruit, challenges, changes and more.

This month we were visited by relatives from England and the States, and some are still here as we see the new year in.  I thought I would share some of the moments and highlights that made 2016 for me and I hope to fulfill more dreams and be more of a blessing...

Relatives visiting from abroad, great to see them and spend some time

There are so many more moments that were special that I haven't yet written about, but I will be sharing during the New Year.

What ever you do to see the old year out and the new year in, stay safe and remember that within you have a multitude of gifts waiting to be birthed, go be a blessing, use your gifts and see what amazing opportunities come back when you take that step!


  1. Hi Amanda - Happy New Year to you and the family and your friends ... sounds like you've really found your niche - so pleased for you. Wonderful to see some of your photos and places you've been to, friends and family visiting ...

    Love your thought for us all ... 'use our gifts and see what opportunities arise, when we take the step and move forward' ... excellent and you've shown us how to do it ...

    Cheers and hugs for 2017 - Hilary
