Friendship

Well it’s been a hell of a few months !!

My mum was diagnosed with breast cancer , she finished her radiotherapy treatment today !

She’s had surgery and radiotherapy and taken it all in her stride !!

We’ve been in a sort of cocoon for months where we could think of nothing else !

We had weeks of not knowing how things were going to go .

And now they feel quite confident that they have cured her .

What joy what bliss what an eye opener !

Throughout it all friendship was there both amongst us as family members sisters mothers daughters and with friends .

We may not have for to speak much but just knowing you had friends there made all the difference !

Thank you to all my friends both those related and not !!

We’ve come the other side and we are celebrating with a new teapot for mum and a bottle of champagne !!

Sister. She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she’s the reason you wish you were an only child.

Living in the moment

Saw a man on the tv this morning . He has recently been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and has 6 months to live !

He said he never felt so alive the sun , the trees , food , everything is so amazing now ‘

He feels like he is tingling all over !!

It’s a pity that a terminal diagnosis is needed to appreciate life !!

We should all learn from this gentleman to appreciate life now !!

To live every day as if it’s our last .

“What day is it?”
It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
My favorite day,” said Pooh.”
