JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

Thirty seven years.

At midday on the 5th September 1979 I gave birth to our eldest son Kurt Philip McCowen.  The birth of Kurt and then two years later his brother were, and remain, our proudest moments.  There is nothing in the world more beautiful and emotional than holding your newborn child in your arms for the first time.  You love that child more than you ever thought imaginable and you are fiercely protective of that tiny little babe.
Those feelings never stop as you children grow.  You always want to protect them and the love you have for them is unconditional.  So, today Kurt would have turned 37.  I try to picture him as a 37 year old but it is impossible.  He is forever ingrained in my memory as a gorgeous fun loving 21 year old taken from us way to soon.  Love you to the moon and back Kurto. xx
