My Girls

 It has been my happy privilege to host my lovely niece Gillian Sarah Joy for the past 3 months!!  True to her name, Gill brought the Bird family lots of joy.  She is good natured, hard working, easy going, sensible, fun to be with, thoughtful.... Great character qualities that make living with her extra easy.  I must say, I have thought of her as one of my girls these past weeks, and am so thankful that she was able to travel all the way from Canada to be with us.  She and Anna and Leah became great friends.  Gill and Anna travel now to the UK to Capernwray Bible College in Carnforth, Lancashire County until June.  Come back to Perth soon Gillian!  I miss you!

  1. You know....God is good... I see Leah and remember Bekah and New Zealand Capernway. I now see Capernwray England and can remember Anna and Gill. Our families started to intertwine back in 1895...when the right honourable Brayton was born. What a long way we have come and what a long way we have yet to go. What about creating a family history blog? I love reading this one Mary!!!! Love Johnny

  2. That is a challenge I will consider Johnny. Long days ahead in Jakarta without a clear vision of what to do with myself. Perhaps... Thanks so much for the idea!
