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.

A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you. – Elbert Hubbard

Just a little something

Just a little something I saw in a book today and which I’m constantly telling myself ,,

Being a parent is fabulous but full of worry and guilt . Did I do the right thing for them ? Do I do the right thing for them . Should I work should I be at home ? Did they eat well today ? Etc..

The guilt can be endless !!

But I always say to myself all you can do is your best and that’s good enough !
I found some stuff by Louise l hay today which I thought was interesting about how we should feel about our own parents !! Takes the pressure off a bit !!

They , too , were children once.
Now is the time for me to stand up on my own two feet, to support myself . To give myself what my parents couldn’t give me. The more I learn about their childhoods , the more I understand their limitations . No one taught them how to be parents. They were living out the limitation s of their own parents . Parent issues are something we all deal with every day . So the best we can do us to live them as they are and affirm that they love us as we are . I do not use my parents as an excuse for the negative parts of my life . I bless my parents with love and release them to the happiness that is meaningful to them Louise l hay meditations to heal your life
