The Blessing Blog is evolving!

The original concept of The Blessing Blog was to chart daily blessings, 365 days a year. Unfortunately with the busyness and hardships of life I couldn’t maintain the pace.

Instead, The Blessing Blog will now share, where and when possible, the experiences and adventures of preparing for and undertaking a 6 month sabbatical from work. I hope it will inspire you to make the most of the blessing of your life.

I would love you to share the journey with me.



Counting my blessings

This is a blog into the unknown, charting the course of a 6 month adventure and beyond. It is a blog about exploring the rich extra-ordinariness of life as I journey through the UK, Northern Spain and beyond on sabbatical.

Who knows where this path might lead. What could be better than a traditional Irish blessing, I look forward to sharing the journey with you:

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

and rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
