May Quotation week from Lynne.
As I write this I still have to blog the last 3 weeks which I am finding very enjoyable and easy having just come back from a lovely holiday in France
Maybe this week my quote is more on the serious side but another dimension to our lives
“ The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”
This month my quote comes from a very famous man that we have all heard of......Mahatma Gandi 1869 – 1948
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, commonly known as Mahatma Gandhi, was the preeminent leader of Indian nationalism in British-ruled India.
Even after his death, Gandhi's commitment to non-violence and his belief in simple living--making his own clothes, eating a vegetarian diet, and using fasts for self-purification as well as a means of protest -- has been a beacon of hope for oppressed and marginalized people throughout the world.
Please try and watch the videos as they are historically interesting. Well I found them informative and interesting!

I shall be interested to see how you interpret this quote.
We all serve others, at home - our family, at work and in other ways whether we raise money for charities or work for charities. [I know some of you do both of these.] I also know that children are very involved in thinking of others and often are raising money, definitely for Comic Relief and Red nose days!
It is good to see most of us back weekly once again, I know several of us were worried we wouldn’t see the year out, but I am sure we will.
Love to you all
