I haven't posted in a little while. The usual thing to do would be to give you a brief update so here goes...
My Mother is ill. She suffers from something you cannot catch like the common cold. She must be hospitalised and the idea frightens me. Nobody wants this to happen to a child, sibling or friend and I especially do not wish to see my mother suffer. The good news is she has a positive 'can do' attitude and I believe she will commence the road to recovery very soon after her treatment.
It is always a shock to your system when you hear bad news and it can make you feel very tiny and insignificant but from this we inevitably grow and manage to cope somehow in some remarkable way, like a bright green grass shoot from a crack in a heavy, grey concrete block. Life finds a way, perseverance pushes us further and hope prevails.
Of course I have more news but I think I will leave those stories for another entry. Sometimes it is better to step back from the hustle and bustle of daily life, close your eyes and take a deep breath.
