Wasabi;
I join the others and say that you are in my thoughts and prayers. But my prayer is different.

I will not pray that all will be peachy for you. For that's not what life is about. And my will and wishes won't make everything better. Lie isn't about wishes. It is about learning, growing, overcoming obstacles, and thereby becoming stronger, as a person, as a soul. Life is about learning to adapt to whatever comes our way, and about trusting our family, our freinds, and especially our spouses if we have them. Life is about humility, being able to accept offered help, being able to ask for help, being able to lean on others, and sharing our own talents and strengths with others.

My prayer for you is that Heavenly Father grants to you the strength, wisdom, and courage to face whatever problems life throws your way. If it is to be that you are to get well, then that is truly wonderful, and we will all be thankfull. If it is to be that the future holds heartache, and fear, then take heart. As you exercise your own faith, you will be given what you need, and that includes the courage to face and deal with whatever ailment aflicts you. And I will still be thankfull.

Of course I hope your illness can be successfully treated, and that you can be returned to full health and vitality. But my hopes mean little in the real world. So I pray that whatever the future holds, you will be given the wisdom, strength, and courage to get through it.

That is what I want for you. And I pray that wisdom will grace your husband, you family, and your doctor as well.

Seeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

I'm lighting a candle for you, Linda,

I had the pleasure of listening to a speaker last week who was diagnosed with Parkinsons at 7 yrs old and told he would die because they didn't know how to treat it. Then his life was saved due to an overdose of radiation resulting in horrible burns to his legs - he's had 44 surgeries and is due for another in two weeks. He is a remarkable man.

A couple of thoughts he left with us:

The best day of your life is today - you're here.
The greatest handicap is fear.
The greatest mistake is giving up.
The worst bankruptcy is loss of enthusiasm.

Stay strong - we're all in your corner and we're here when you don't feel so strong to shore you up!

Linda2

Love the thoughts! lindatoo, was he diagnosed at 7 or 70? Parkinsons is for elderly isn't it? I am not trying to be critical here but I would really like to know how old was this man? Anyway thanks for sharing his thoughts. They do help to enocourage.
