enjoyed seeing all those lovely photographs with members of your
Organisation in your home town where you were the President and I am
sure you did a good job within all your members as you are known for
achievements and on-going success.
know you will soon not be able to access your photographs and as such I
have added a page to your Rabiznaz blog spot. I will always be able to
view your photos whilst looking back at your blog.
If you have any more photographs you want added, just send them to me.
Love - Benny
Dear Margaret Ann, and Peggy,
Greetings in this combined e-mail to you both.
How wonderful it was to see,and welcome you both to our AGM
Festivities, as I called them, yesterday. Your combined presences
together with that of Dr. Cooper, Terry O'Toole and our very own CWL
dignitaries and clergy, made for a wonderful and festive occasion.
Thank you so much for coming to grace us with your presence. It was
tremendous. Little did I think that you would actually be with us
when I first sent you the pictures of our Quilt with an invitation
saying, " You are most welcome to attend our AGM, distance and
weather permitting.".... My dear friend......... the Holy Spirit must
have had a hand in this for sure. Miracles are happening all around us. Right?
So glad, you liked our Quilt of Life.... me thinks it stole the
show....and the ladies who had worked on it , together with the whole
assembly were ever so proud of it, as was I.
Wonderful that it is going to National, In Prince Edward Island in
August ! What an honour for us all !!!
As I was saying Farewell as President, I wanted to make our AGM very
special and memorable for our CWL and Parish.... you will both, as
teachers, understand this , for we as teachers always want to make it
grand for our students and for the community at large. I guess this
carries on even when we retire and are called to be leaders as
Presidents....ever the teacher...ever the giver !
The red roses to two very special ladies, Shirley MacDougall and
Catherine Mary MacNeil-MacDonald, in CWL took my breath and emotions
away, and thus took away my attention for a minute, as I said
farewell to them. My report will tell you all about how my heart was
feeling yesterday. God was with me, and I'm sure the Holy Spirit was
there too with me every step of the way, for I had asked God, The
Holy Spirit and Jesus, to be with me even as I had written it in my
place-name card , which I had written the night before.
My report with all the pictures were my personal gift to CWL and the
wonderful ladies it was my pleasure to work with these past two
years. I know it was a different and unusual kind of report but it
was to be a souvenir gift to my beloved CWL. My imagination knows no
bounds as all here will attest to.
My bionic knees have read me the riot act so I must take a wee rest,
if that is at all possible with me.... I shall do my very best just the same.
Thanks again my dear sisters in the League. Keep up the marvellous
work you are doing for the League, even as I share the following
quote from Teresa of Lisieux....my saint since my youth, compliments
of Mother Mary Seward of the Sisters of Africa, where I taught at
their school in Mombasa Kenya before coming to Canada with Mike my
soul-mate and husband in 1968 when we were married and Mike brought
home me to his homeland in God's country Cape Breton.....:-
." You know enough that Our Lord does not look so much at the
greatness of our actions, nor even at their difficulty, but at the
love with which we do them. "
Take care my dear friends and God bless.
Cheerie bye for now and much love.
Past President as of yesterday 26th February 2017
St. Ninian's CWL Council
ps....... I am sending you my pictures in two batches of six.... hope
you like them.........y
