Mar(k): Travel, Hiking, and "Doing Good"

musings on our life of travel and volunteering

Loving the beautiful people

with 2 comments

hi everyone!  It has been a while since we’ve had a moment to sit down and actually update our blog!  But it seems our readership is still out there – so thank you for sticking it out with us!   Mark and I have been crazily busy lately – to the point where, although we share an office at home – we actually booked in a “working lunch” this week, so we could go through some governance training material together!   If it wasn’t for the fact that we actually share an office at home, I swear we’d never see each other!  

Anyhow – enough excuses.   What I wanted to talk briefly about was the BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE.   I’m not talking about models, movie stars, or handsome sporting heroes, here, either.   I’m talking about the every day people who touch our lives in a special way.  We all know them, don’t we?   The special friends who make you laugh just when you think you’re about to cry, the postie who gives you a wave in the morning as he passes by your mailbox, the cashier at your local market who has a chat as she weighs your fruit and veggies.   There are so many!   

Last weekend we were down in the Yallingup area, which is about three hours south of Perth.   We were there to attend the wedding of a friend.  It was a great time!   And we were very touched to be amongst the lucky ones to get an invite to this fantastic event!   So many beautiful people in one space!   It was outdoors, and was quite windy during the reception…..  so at one stage Mark and I ducked back into our little cabin to make a cup of coffee to keep warm.  We grabbed our steaming mugs, and headed back to the dance floor to keep bopping around.   We didn’t think anyone would notice the “oldies” nicking off for a few moments, but we were caught out!   The next morning at breakfast the bride commented that one of her enduring memories of the night was seeing the Shox dancing around the heater, cupping their mugs of coffee!!! aaaarrrrrgh!   Anyhow, here is a pic of us at the event – on the beach!  

We hope you’ll take a moment to think about who the beautiful people are in your life – and give them a little bit of appreciation…. just because!
