So thank you fellow bloggers for cheering up my morning on this difficult day!

  1. Well done Wendy. That’s fabulous. I’m personally finding your blogs inspirational so I’m not surprised that you have got so many followers. Good luck to your daughter in law for her surgery and speedy recovery. Maria.

    1. Ahhh thanks so much Maria… very much appreciated!!! Hope all is good at the Croft? Surgery went well and Jen is back on the ward and is still smiling…now that is true inspiration! xxx


  2. This makes me smile. On the day I learn that my cousin’s wife is not going to win her battle it is particularly poignant. Thank you for finding me. Thank you for all you do. Thank you NHS for being there to save the lives of as many as you can. Thank you life. Hard-knock you may be but you are the most living of things and we must appreciate you. Treat you as the most precious gift.

      1. Thank you. But please understand that the fact your daughter-in-law is going to get the chance to raise her girls when the same disease that smite her mother is what is about to take our girl gives me so much hope. I weep for her, for my cousin, for her children though grown still her teenies and yet I smile copiously for your girl. That’s just the way life is …. we win some, we lose some and we must embrace very chance we have to live.

        1. You are so so kind Osyth… and on a day that is so hard for you and your family I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it… Life is bitter sweet.. I am full of gratitude that research has enabled this procedure which as you say wasn’t available for Jen’s mum… I’m sure she was watching over Jenny today though! Enjoying every moment while it lasts is so important you are right! Thank you and I’m so glad we are in contact – your support is amazing and beautiful! xxx

    1. You were my first follower Victoria!… I can’t believe that I’ve now risen to 500+… Thank you for your wonderful words and continued support for my blog and for my lovely family!! xx


      1. I am. I was busy last month helping a friend with her English and more of building up her confidence due to health issues. It took me away from the blogs and I have missed everyone, like a family. Now trying to catch up with all the blogs I am following. Will come that way soon to see what has been going on 🙂 ❤

        1. How funny – that fits perfectly with the blog I’ve just posted about giving a helping hand… It’s so important and far more important than blogging! How lovely that your friend has someone in her life who cares about her! x

          1. I know but in this case it did not work that way. You see as she is an adult and has the basic English knowledge, and needed to look at her health in a different way, I started teaching together with positivity. By writing gratitudes as she has almost every ailment that one can have. After the first month she didn’t want the new things, someone who does not want to leave the comfort zone but sticking to the age old habits and beliefs !!!
            When I was talking on how praying can help and I showed her quotes on positivity. She got me confused in saying I think funny that what she wanted was English !!!
            This is an instant that by going to help, I got disappointed but I have taken it as a lesson. As you see its not all who can understand what some of us are doing. Here we are on a different wave length and for a brief period I was shown how far I have come and how much I have developed myself. I believe I can write an article later on this. When there is so much going on and when one can upgrade oneself, some choose to be ignorant and lead lives of ill health leading to unhappiness !!

          2. Oh so true… There is an old saying… “you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink”… It may be that this wasn’t the right time for your friend and in the future your words may come back to her… that has happened with me previously.. Not all people are ready to look within… it’s not easy! Well done to you for having done so and continue your improvement journey! x

          3. Yes you are correct. Some are Not ready. It happens to me often as I tend to notice or see things much earlier than others. And they realize later sometimes too late as she also has the same issue like your daughter in law. I have taken it as a positive experience and written an article about it just now. Thanks Love and Light 🙂 ❤

          4. That’s brilliant.. yep ‘flip it’ from negative to positive – always a good philosophy and there’s always a silver lining when we look from a different perspective! x
