Thanks Amber!

Rhiannon and her year 7 friends had some religion homework. They had to chose a person they knew and then answer a set of questions on them. The questions covered topics such as relationships, faith, community and parish involvement. The final part of the homework was to "sum up" the person in a general paragraph.

One night I got a phone-call from Amber, one of Rhiannons friends. I assumed she wanted to chat to Rhiannon about something but it turned out she had chosen me for her homework and wanted to ask me the questions.

The next morning I got a message from Amber's Mum, Karen. It contained a photo of the final homework that had been handed in. When I talked to Karen later she was joking that they expected to see the photo on the blog later. I asked would it not be big headed of me to put such a brag post up and Karen laughed and said that everyone already knows I'm big headed and just do it!

So hear, reluctantly blowing my own trumpet, is Ambers opinion of me...
(thanks Amber, I owe you a cookie!)

"I think the behaviour that you see in Gina 
mostly is her relationship with her family and 
others. Gina is always with her family as 
much as she can be. She makes home 
made cookies, cakes and is always taking 
funny photo's. When ever I'm at Gina's 
place she always makes me fell welcome. 
She gives us hot chocolates, cookies and 
cakes. Gina is funny, fun loving, nice, kind, caring 
and great to be around. I admire this 
because its great to spend time with 
others. She will give up her time to be 
with her family. Gina has a very strong 
faith and this shows in her beautiful 
caring nature"

  6. Gina ... I've only known you for one year but from my observations you are an amazing role model and leader to your kids and like Monica Scanlon you always want to be involved in everything every way possible . Also you are one of the most creative mums that I know. I remember looking at the subject labels in Rhiannon's books last year and all of the home made things an I thought wow ! I wish I had a mum like that. You seriously are great and I know your kids love you heaps . Valencia xx
