My 38th Birthday Wish, Help the Helpless. Now Up

My 38th birthday wish. Ps it’s only tomorrow.

Link to Donate

Those of you who know me well and not so well, most likely know that this little heart belongs to helping animals – especially dogs. I basically live in a kennel with our 6 dogs well owners.

Anyway, I do love a pressie but Covid has taught me alot. Things do not matter they do not make your heart smile.But helping others less fortunate brings an overwhelming feeling of pure joy.

I was devastated to hear that Ark Animal Centre had closed.A place I have always yearned to help.On visits there, tears running down my face, I was always amazed at how the owner and staff treated their rescues, as part of their own family.Love given so freely. Cuddles always. And anything to help an abandoned animal survive.

Even the best vet, Palm Gardens, in Fourways, Jozi (mainly the owners, @ElenaFlaschner & @PhilippeFlaschner ) treated their animals for free as they knew just how wonderful this shelter was.Ark Animal still has 30 dogs so they still need assistance.

But showing you all how truly wonderful this shelter was,they are supporting and asking people to help Woodrock Animal Rescue.

Special people don’t come along often enough but we find them once in awhile just like the owner of Ark Animal.

The Woodrock Animal Rescue is another shelter where the owner and staff are so absolutely dedicated to their precious rescues.Love is also shown at all times. In fact they are on par with Ark Animal – how wonderful.

And so my birthday wish is not for things. It is for raising funds for the helpless. Things do not make your heart smile, but helping the helpless will fill you with a joy and warmth. Your soul will smile. You will be happy.

That is why I chose animals as they are so defenceless and innocent. They live a short life but they teach us so much, about love even unrequited. They make my heart and soul smile.

All funds and anything donated will go to Elena of Palm Gardens Vet, who will then distribute by still helping with the 30 doggies at Ark Animal and Woodrock Animal Rescue.

I do know in these difficult times money is short for all. Don’t let that stop you.Donations need not be money but perhaps food, toys, blankets as we approach winter or perhaps a visit to give love and cuddles – please tag me if you visit.If you can help in any way.

Thank you for being such a special person.Thank you from the depths of my very heart, I hope I can help your soul smile by doing this.

Love infinityJoJo

My 38th Birthday Wish. Ps It’s Only On Sunday.

As the Facebook doesn’t allow me to choose a charity.

I will be setting up a fund me page for Ark animal centre.

A rescue centre that was always one of the many shelters I yearned to help.
Our beloved vets at Palm Gardens treated the rescues @ElenaFlaschner & @PhilippeFlaschner and never before or since have I been to a shelter where such love, care, devotion and selflessness was shown by the staff to their rescues, whom they called and treated as family.

Unfortunately this shelter has closed. I am devastated.

But on a lighter note they are supporting and asking people to help Woodrock Animal Rescue

This is another shelter where the owner and staff are so absolutely dedicated to their precious rescues. Love is shown at all times.

In these difficult times donations need not be money but food, toys, blankets as we approach winter or perhaps a visit to give love and cuddles – please tag me.

I choose animals as they are so defenseless and innocent. They live a short life but they teach us so much about love even unrequited.

Thank you from the depths of my heart if you can help.
Love infinity ♾

I Miss You…

3 weeks ago to the day you left for your eternal home.
Never before have I seen sunsets like these.
I know it’s you daddy.

We all love/d nature so you are showing us a hint of the magnificence you are seeing as well as saying

“Hey girls just as surely as the sun rises and sets, I’m here guiding your way and looking after you.always as I always did”

As reality sinks in and we know we will never see you on this earth again, it’s tough,pops.

It gets harder everyday and as everyone says this is our ‘new normal’ – for our family it’s not normal, so closely woven by invisible threads, we saw each other everyday – for us it’s a ‘heart wrenching new normal.’

Dad, you taught us to be strong and we are and will be.
I miss you infinity ♾ and a day plus so much more.

My Daddy, my first love, my strength, mentor, hero and now guardian angel in Heaven.

I love you and count the seconds until I see you again for eternity, 🤍🤍🤍🤍Becky

Daddy, Rest In The Father’s Arms Now: Forever our hero. We salute you

This evening from our folks room the sunset was the most amazing we have ever seen it.

It was a sign from our grand pops/husband/dad, our legend, our in case of emergency.

He knew he had to show us that he was happy and smiling.

Heaven truly put on a majestic display to welcome a new angel, our now guardian angel.

The shock slowly wears off at times and we are left shattered with very sore hearts.

Paul Campbell Robertson Bayvel, ‘Doll’ to mom, Daddy to us, Pops to his grandkids, papa bear to his nearest and springbok rugby legend to others.

We bid you farewell. We miss you with everything. Our hearts are shattered.

We love you infinity and a day.

Rest in the arms of our Heavenly Father.

Forever our hero. We salute you

Another Cancer Rodeo For Our Family, This Time With Our Dad, Paul Bayvel. Believing In A Miracle At The Significant Time Of Easter – On That Old Rugged Cross.

Tears stream, written in most part by the third heart in my life, my oldest sister Bronwyn Darné

@365wholesomedays 🙏🏼➕ this is possibly the first Easter we won’t spend with our dad. This part beautifully penned by @bronni_bee ”It has been a particularly hard day this year. Our family is apart because of the lockdown, and our dad, our pops, the king of our tribe, is in hospital and we are not able to visit. He was diagnosed earlier this year with stage 4 lung cancer (having spread to his spine). The prognosis is not good But we are standing on the Word and praying for a miracle. The significance of this day has overwhelmed me but simultaneously given me peace. For when we meet the deepest of our broken moments we know we are redeemed, and we will have peace and tender mercy.”

Bronni I love you. Every word is so true. What a time for a miracle at that ’old rugged cross’ – one of our pops favourite songs.

Jesus died for this reason so that all illness is gone, all pain and suffering He took.

Believing in His love and mercy for this miracle at this profound time; Easter is not lost on us.

We know our God is a Good Good Father one of miracles and wander. Even with our hearts laying broken on the floor.
Prayers and Faith are still holding us up, enabling us to be strong enough to believe in that promise made at Calvary 2020 years ago.

And of course to put back together the pieces of these shattered hearts so we can be warriors, fighting for a man we absolutely adore. Blessed more than words that we are so close a strong, Faith filled family able to fight the fight even after Debs 32 year battle.

Heavenly Daddy hold our father in your arms as he is alone, let him know you more and more.

Fill our hearts with your love & peace. Especially mom as he is her forever love.

Old things have ceased, at the cross, at the cross… that old rugged Cross.

Love Always


Something I To Am Guilty Of; Thinking Of Those Who Have Lost Their Lives, Those Who Have Love Lost One’s. To This Terrible Virus. MTDRIP

a sad society. i am a part of, & just as guilty.

we are so focused on the new both fake & real all day
we post & focus on comlaining about the lockdown & boredom all the time.

we focus on ourselves workouts & cleanouts & our staying safe.
we really focus only on ourselves… still.

how will we ever learn that this selfishness & loss of empathy has caused this world to become a place of war, fighting, sickness and despair.

I can count on one hand the number of posts, tweets etc that are for the victims & their loved ones.

please may we learn the lesson – love one another, care more for others than yourself.

treat our home, planet earth, with the utmost love & respect.

maybe then we can heal this planet.

Love always & a day
