Grateful for health.
Over the last month I have had all my scans and blood tests to make sure that I am in full health with regards to my breast cancer which I faced 9 years ago. Having had cancer keeps me humble as I know that it is something that one has to be on the look out for ever after. Each year as I have my tests done I experience a relieved and grateful heart when I am told that all is still fine. It underlines the fact that I want to keep spreading light and kindness to others around me.
The way I enjoy spreading light.
I believe we are all given strengths and talents that we can enjoy for ourselves as well as to share with others around us. I enjoy connection through friendships, and I also enjoy communicating through writing and art. I value encouragement and wisdom as much as I value the arts. Part of my makeup is to withdraw from time to time to a place that is quiet and calm. I think, read, reflect and express my personal life here and out of this space I find ideas and feelings that I want to share. I leave you with one of my favorite blessings…
An Old Irish Blessing
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life’s passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
May the blessing of light be on you, light without and light within. May the blessed sunshine shine on you and warm your heart till it glows like a great peat fire, so that the stranger may come and warm himself at it, and also a friend. Irish blessing
