Welcome to this wonderful world, Amelie Francesca

October 9, 2012

Today at 3:51 Amelie was born to Julie and my son David. Well done Julie! Amelie is my fourth grandchild and I should feel old but instead I’m fully of joy and happiness. There’s nothing like a new-born to recharge the batteries and to refocus the mind on what really is important. The innocence and harmony which a baby generates is immense and I feel so grateful to be able to experience this again and all other things pale into insignificance.

As I’m with one foot outside the door to embark on yet another adventure, this time in the USA and then onto New Zealand for the launch of our new branch office I know I will do this with a sprightlier step and will take Amelie in my thoughts.

What a great day!
