"My dream is to present a weekend for weary women who need a short break and some much needed reflection. I am so thankful for this opportunity"
‘..dankie dit was baie lekker en ons het dit vreeslik geniet en baie geleer’
‘Lynnette dankie dat ek myself kon vind en besef ek kan met ordinary se white feather my droom
najaag en dat daar beloftes is om wel my droom te vind dankie
Aan my vriendinne oues en nuwes dankie vir stunning naweek’
‘Dankie Lynette. Ek voel asof ek n groot geskenk gekry het.’
‘Thank you for a very special, insightful weekend. I think the Dream Giver has given you an amazing
A NOT SO ORDINARY WEEKEND....
The weekend of the 2nd to the 4th of August 2019 my dream came true. For the last 5 years I have been dreaming AND struggling with this dream. Some part of me wanted to run as far and as fast as I could AWAY from this dream. And, believe me, I tried. But, in the end, every year at the end of the year this dream would pop right up and yell: "What about this year?". At long last, at the end of 2018 I realised that there was no use in trying to run away again: it was 2019 or nothing. And, very reluctantly, I started doing the homework and putting in the hours and the research. And all the time I was so scared and so anxious about doing it. But what I found was the minute I started thinking about this dream, it started becoming a reality: first in my mind, then in my heart and then there was no turning around again.
In the end, we were a group of seven people, 2 of the group were presenting specific topics and I was leading the sessions and teaching the crafts. This was supposed to be a try-out session only, but it ended up being exactly what I wanted it to be. I believe that this weekend proved to me that this is exactly what I should be doing in the future. I felt the passion, saw the reaction from our group members and loved the teaching as I always do when I present craft classes. I have no greater dream than to be a part of something so special again. I am praying for more such opportunities for as long as I am able to do this. Ordinary is not what this weekend was, it was extraordinary, passion-filled, powerfully motivating and more than I would have believed a year ago.
