You've made my day !

Do you know what makes my day ?
There are many things, but I'd like to tell you about two of them:

Number 1 : Your comments

Thank you, thank you so much for all the love, encouragement, praise and humour that you put in your comments, it really makes my day as well as my family's !
Number 2 : Your lovely blogs

I love reading your blogs and discovering your adventures - thank you for sharing all the joy in your life with us, but if you have any sadness you know it's important to share it too, because we can help you, encourage you, pray for you and send you all our love.

I'd like to discover more about the places you live, can I ask you to send  a postcard of the city or region where you live to me, Bella at P.O. Box 2604, Cheltenham 3192, Australia. Don't forget to put your address so I can send you a postcard of Melbourne, an aboriginal painting or an Australian animal (tell me if you have a preference). Mum says she will help me to reply to everyone and then she will put all your cards on a map of the world so I can see where you all live.
Thank you in advance, I'm looking forward to getting some nice postcards.

I find a lot of  beautiful words on your blogs, like this one :
Life is a precious gift,

love is a wonderful gift,
and laughter is a glorious gift.
So live life to the fullest,
love with all your heart,
and laugh as much as you breathe.

Silly Dad couldn't remember which blog he got it from; if this is yours, let me know because Dad would like to quote it in the next edition of my book.

Amelie has been invited to her friend Lauren's wedding and I asked if I could come along; Lauren said yes, so I asked Mum to get me a nice outfit :

But when Amelie showed me a photo of Lauren and her future husband,  I had second thoughts : if that tiger is best man and he's hungry, he might eat me. HELP !!!!
"Bella come out of under that bed, it's a photo that was taken when they were  on holidays in Thailand, they didn't bring him back !" - said Amelie

It's Oskar's 5th birthday today, please go and visit him here - Happy Birthday and best wishes Oskar from all of us !
Do you know what I would love ? If you could send me your birth date or gotcha date, with your first photo and a recent photo and I could put it on my blog on the day - and if you send me your postal address, then Mum could send you a beautiful card too !

Go and visit the beautiful Julep, she is modelling a dress I sent her and it suits her so well !

Martha and Bailey didn't want to wear hats, but their Mum did some magic to put a hat on their head - go and see them here !

Yegads! A tiger? That's a GIANT CAT! I would avoid that at all costs, Bella! I do like that dress you have on for the wedding a whole lot, though.

I like your postcard idea a lot! I will bark at Mom to help me look for one to send to you soon. It might not be from our little town, but there are two cities nearby that will have some good ones!
