Who is Pete?


Well! I’m just an ordinary Aussie bloke. I love life, I love my family and I love my sport.

I think a lot about the simple things in life and how we can all learn from stopping for a few moments every now and then and giving ourselves a chance to consider who we are, where we are going in life and how we think we might get there.

I have been blessed with a loving wife and three children. The kids have all grown up. We now have grandchildren and we are very proud of our family and love them dearly.

I believe in a God who loves us unconditionally and I believe we should follow this example in our relatonships with others in this life as we are preparing for the next.

Throughout our lives we struggle and we smile; we laugh and we cry; we suffer and we celebrate. As we grow in age and wisdom each of us has a different story to relate about our individual journey. There are stories that tell of hardships and pain, courage and perseverance and strength and endurance. They relate how we have experienced periods of deep sorrow as well as times of great joy.  Our stories vary and each chapter in our book of life contains examples of how we have loved and been loved in return. During our journey it soon becomes evident we all need help and support from others to survive. For our life can be lonely and made virtually impossible if we attempt to travel it alone.

It is my sincere hope that perhaps something within my stories might make the journey a little easier for the reader.
