Goodbye, Au revoir, Aufwiedersehen, tot ziens

I am known to disappear from time to time but this time I am leaving the blogging world for a long time as I said in my last post. Probably till after I come back from Holland, which will be about the end of May 2009. I hope to see many of you back than and if not I thank you as I enjoyed to travel with you. I wish you all happiness on your personal journey. Don't be afraid to follow your dreams and find lots of treasures in your daily lives. I give you a few of mine
  • This week I helped the students at my kids school to prepare for the market where they could sell their self made products. When I left to go home my nearly 16 year old daughter gave me a big hug in the middle of all the students. Only a short time ago she was even embarrassed to walk next to me.
  • We had a marvelous sunset 2 days ago.
  • When I felt a bit tired last week and I had still so much work to do my son spontaneously took the vacuum cleaner and gave me a hand.
  • I got some great awards I have to thank Missy for this beautiful award. Missy is one of my earliest friends here and she is an amazing person and poet. She sent an email to ask to support the breastcancer site by just clicking on it. It's that easy. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on 'donating a mammogram' for free (pink window in the middle). Thanks xxx

I got this beautiful award from Patricija from Slovenia who is a great photographer and has an excellent blog as well. Thanks Patricija These awards are for the take for all my blogging friends. Please feel free to take the one you want because I love you all and your blogs are excellent. So for now Adios, Good bye, tot ziens, Au revoir, aufwiedersehen


  1. we wish you the very best...hoping to see you back in the blog world soon

  2. I'll miss you posts, but everything has it's time, and maybe once again there will be a time for more posts. Yes - Follow your dreams and enjoy the moment. I'm convinced if one learns to just enjoy the moment, that when they look back on their lives and all those individual moments add up, well, it will look like a great life - and it will be!

    Take care.

  3. Marja, I am going to miss your post, I know sometimes we have to do what we have to do life is like that, but know you will be missed. I am going to email you my address again and if you fill like it give me yours so I can send a card. :) I've gotten lazy about writing but I'd love to touch base with you while your gone.

    Be safe, be sweet and know again you'll be missed.

  4. Dearest Marja

    "We'll keep a welcome in the hillsides,
    We'll keep a welcome in the dales.
    This land of song will soon be singing,
    When you come home again to Wales." (via the internet!)

  16. marja....our journeys can take us to faraway places can't they? This is what i love about blogging... with a touch of a fingertip, i'd find myself in New Zealand smiling as I read one of your thoughtful beautiful posts that always had your own personal Dutch kiss attached to it. I will miss you, but understand completely that for now, your own journey is taking a different route.
