THOUGHTS FOR MY DAUGHTER.....



Today in Australia is National Breast Cancer Awareness Day....and all morning on the magic of radio I've been hearing such inspiring tales from women who have been diagnosed with this devastating condition.   I salute you all... you wonderful women....and I pay tribute to those who did not make it.

Every day we read or hear of new advances being made in the fight against this most insidious disease. Progress is being made, although for those already suffering, time moves so slowly....but it will be wonderful to know  that within a few years ( such a short space of time in the scheme of things,) there may be a simple answer to the problem. We can only hope.....

With this day in mind I would like to share with you all some special thoughts for my daughter....

                                  Be like a very small joyous child
                                    Living in the ever present Now 
                                  Without a single worry or concern
                                   About even the next 
                                  Moment in time.....

                                  Be at peace...
                                  And see a clear pattern and plan

                                Running through your life......

                                  Nothing is by chance.
                                

                                                   (Words by Eileen Caddy)                  .

How very beautiful.

Even in the midst of our anguish and suffering there are flames of hope. Let no one put out the hope. And… if we could only live in the present with no thoughts of tomorrow, our living would be better…more quality and less quantity.

"Nothing is by chance." Not me, not you, not Leith.

Prayers, my friend.

Beautiful. Reading it reminded me a bit of Desiderata by Max Ehrmann - http://www.fleurdelis.com/desiderata.htm

Yes Lily....I know what you mean. I am familiar with Desiderata, in fact it was one of Leith's faves a few years back, framed and up on her wall. Thanks so much for your comment
