Stilbly is soms die antwoord !
Dit lees en leer ons ook in die Bybel in Spreuke. Nou hoekom is dit tog so moeilik om net eers te dink, voor jy praat…hoekom??

Hoekom besef ons keer op keer te laat dat dit dwaas is om “dinge” te sê as jy kwaad is ?
Ja, net om direk daarna te wens ons het dit nooit gesê nie.

Ongelukkig is ons vroue dikwels hieraan skuldig, ons praat te veel, te maklik en luister te min. (Jammer as ek veralgemeen.)
Maar onthou net, dit wat gesê is kan NOOIT teruggeneem of uitgewis word nie.

Nee, moet nie ophou praat nie – stiller sagte woorde op die regte manier, regte tyd en met die regte gesindheid, praat die hardste.
Maar al weet ons dit alles, fouteer ons so maklik weer en weer.

“Stilbly”, kan natuurlik ook teen jou werk.
Dit is nie altyd wat ons sê nie, maar “HOE” ons iets sê.
Ai, daardie “HOE” deel …. Die vinnige handgebaar, die oë wat dak toe gerol word, die frons, die gevoude arms, die aangeplakte glimlag, die kopknik, die trek van die bekkie, ‘n grinnik, die gaap …. dit alles stuur ‘n boodskap, en gewoonlik nie ‘n mooi boodskap nie.

Maar in die hitte van ‘n argument laat ons gerus probeer onthou – vergeet kom met tyd, maar vergewe is ‘n lewenslange letsel.

En in die woorde van Maya Angelou: “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Mosselbaai Gholfklub se liga-spanne het vanjaar besonder goed presteer. Ons B-liga- en C-liga-spanne het Saterdag 8 November 2014 op George in die Suidkaap-finale teen onderskeidelik Fancourt en Riversdale gespeel. Ons B-span onder leiding van Johan Strauss het skitterend in die oggend se beurtspelle gevaar en loop met 2.5 wedstryde teenoor 0.5 voor met die aanvang van die middag se enkelspelle.Daar was egter nie keer aan die Mosselbaaiers nie en Fancourt kon slegs 0.5 wedstryde van die 6 enkelspelle kry. Mosselbaai seëvier met 8 wedstryde teen 1.

Die C-span van Noël Domingo het met ‘n sterk gemotiveerde span van Riversdal te doen gekry. Mosselbaai kon die oggend se beurtspelle met 2.5 wedstryde teenoor 1.5 wedstryde in die sakkie bêre. Die middag se enkelspelle het taai verloop, maar die Mosselbaai-span het te veel skietgoed gehad en wen 5 van die 8 enkelspelle en verseker om as kampioen gekroon te word met 7.5 wedstryde teenoor Riversdal se 4.5 wedstryde. Mosselbaai Gholfklub wil nie net sy hartlike gelukwense aan die spanne gee nie, maar ook dankie sê aan al die spelers vir al die opoffering om Mosselbaai in die liga te verteenwoordig het.

Met die vakansie-seisoen net om die draai is Mosselbaai Gholfklub slaggereed om die vakansie-gangers te verseker van ‘n heerlike gholf-vakansie. Die baan is pragtig en ure se lekker gholfspeel is vir ‘n ieder en elk in die vooruitsig. •

Countries that have confirmed that they will be sending teams are Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, the Czech Republic, Hong Kong, Lithuania, Luxemburg, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, Russia, the United Kingdom, and South Africa.
The pilots will all fly South African-owned aeroplanes.

DBV- GEMEENSKAPSKLINIEK OPEN SY DEURE

Met groot dank en hulp van die Garden Route Casino en verskeie skenkings van ander plaaslike besighede is die bou, oprig en inrig van die kliniek nou ‘n realiteit.

Die kliniek gaan fokus op primêre gesondheidsorg vir diere bv inentings, ontwurming, vlooi beheer ens. Sterilisasies sal ook nog gedoen word.

Die hoofdoel van die gemeenskapskliniek is om mense met ‘n lae inkomste of geen inkomste se diere te help. Dit behoort ‘n groot verskil in die versorging van diere uit genoemde gemeenskappe te maak.

Die kliniek het reeds ‘n gekwalifiseerde veeartseny-verpleegster wat Dinsdae en Donderdagoggende tussen 9:00 en 11:00 beskikbaar sal wees vir behandelings soos inenting, ontwurming ens.

Indien iemand die kliniek wil gebruik, moet hulle ‘n ID dokument, ‘n Sassa- of Pensioen kaart of Allpay saambring. Die wat wel salarisse ontvang moet die laaste drie maande se bankstate en hul laaste bestaalstrokie saambring om te kwalifiseer vir hulp. •
