Hi, my name is Clive McGrory or MAC to my friends. I am 62 years old and live in a small village near Falkirk, Scotland. In fact it is so small that it comprises one street, 50 houses and a small primary school. The beauty of the place is that at the back of my house is a village park which is protected as a site of natural beauty and also has a part that even the villagers cannot enter without permission as it contains some rare flowers. My main interests are cooking, reading and the internet although during the summer months cricket is a priority and I will be glued to the TV for a lot of the time. I live with my wife, Mary, and daughter, Patricia. I am disabled and so is my daughter. I have multiple disabilities which mean that I require a wheelchair to travel distance but I am fortunate in that I can still get about the house with the aid of a delta walker,and am increasing my mobility range slowly through managed exercise. This did take a knock recently so I have a challenge on my hands. Activity wise I generally do the housework and cook for Mary. Sadly I have had to give up gardening which I dearly loved. I am an elder of a local church and like to bake something each week for the after service get together. There is also a lunch club which meets every Tuesday and I sometimes do the main cooking for that also, although we do have a lady who heats everything up or cooks herself and generally everyone pitches in to serve up and wash the dishes afterwards. I generally have a good quality of life and I like to keep a smile going whenever I can. I am an eternal optimist and know that even when things are not going well there is always hope around the corner and that a better and brighter future awaits us all.

    So glad to hear from you and that things are going reasonably well. Good to hear that you are getting some updates to your house. We had the bathroom remodeled last year and that was enough of a pain. I can't imagine doing the whole house. Praying your audit will be completed at church soon. I know how time consuming that can be. Things here have not been the greatest. My husband had a stroke in February and spent 11 weeks in the hospital. He's been home 6 weeks now and having home health stop in for physical therapy. He is paralyzed on his right side so a lot of uncertainties right now about the future. I'm afraid the stress of that and now taking care of him have taken a toll on me as well. Hoping things will begin to settle down and we can figure out what our new normal will be. It's been a wild ride.

    Take care of yourself my friend. emoticon

    Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

    May God give you… emoticon emoticon emoticon

    For every storm, a rainbow,

    For every tear, a smile,

    For every care, a promise,

    And a blessing in each trial.

    For every problem life sends you,

    A faithful friend to share,

    For every sigh, a sweet song,

    And an answer to each prayer.

    – Irish Blessing
