A Blog about life... jewellrey...and beads...

I just had to write this

No this is not about Jewellery...

Ive got this friend, hes an internet friend and he is well educated college admin campus recuiter etc.. His name is Dai and he lives in Katmandu. I feel so utterly BLESSED to have so much so much richness so much bounty in this country. And his blog entry really reminds me what we can so easily take for granted. So here is a bit of what hes written. It really touched my heart....this is what he said...

"I think I am getting a bit depressed by all the negative news coming in from every direction. The electric goes off when we need it most every evening after work and there are queues at the public water tap here. Nepal is as usual in huge political chaos with strikes, demonstrations and forced shutdowns. Burning tyres in the roads with clouds of acrid black smoke is the norm here. And it's freezing cold here with no heating in Kathmandu's buildings. People have to queue for hours to buy petrol and it is in very short supply.

As far as the office is concerned, the news is depressing also since the UK Government is set to severely tighten the rules for Nepalese students wishing to study in the UK and this is going to drastically cut the number of students applying. We have now started to teach IELTS preparation classes here. It's so cold to study I think.

So things are not so good here right now and I was hoping to find some bright things to write about. There are so many negative things going on that I can't get into any festive mood for the approaching Christmas and New Year period."

Daunting words for this world...worldwide. It made my heart very heavy. I pray and I pray.

I will post some Jewellery pics soon...Ive been so tired, a house full of family and too much to do! But Thank you Lord for it ALL.

Bright Blessings today!



Yes we often take what we have at our fingertips for granted. What seems so little to us is actually so very much in others eyes.

Sometimes we need to open our eyes and be thankful for what we do have. I hope things turn around for your friend soon.


Hello Janet
Wow...I agree, such powerful words and what a world away it seems. It is sad what your friend has shared, feeling so down especially this time of year. But it is reality even though we are so far removed, so it seems, from his experiences.

Looking forward to seeing your new jewelry! :-)


Hi Janet,
Thanks for your comment on my tacky sweater! Your butterfly necklace is beautiful! It's a perfect picture to go with the news about your husband's health scare since butterflies represent new beginnings. Merry Christmas.


It — is healthy!
