today I was not that brave..........

In the last hour  literally of today...
I want to express my gratitude for the people who have reached out to and for me...
Those of you who have walked in my shoes know the foggy thoughts that cloud your mind and spirit..
I thought I was going to be able to handle this... but I got sick...feverish...and just plain exhausted getting through my new day with two new additions...
The rumbles and grumbles coming from my body were audible ...
and the fatigue is hard to really describe but I have made it through the first day ...
that is an accomplishment in itself...
tomorrow will be a better day.
The rains came today and when I took the dogs outside I felt as if I had the trees crying for me...
gentle whispers ...reassurances... soft breezes caress my face...I was home and was here when a voice called me from my past...
Patty had tracked me down after over 25 years and we were able to renew our heart spirits.
She will never know what her call meant to me...old friends are golden and know us through thick and thin .
We now have a chance to make new connections...share our grand children....relive old laughter ... and become sisters once again.  Somehow ...sometime in the future ...we now can have a chance to meet once again and share our final decades with each other. 

Come forth into the light of things
Let Nature be your teacher.  William Wordworth

Remember just to fly....

I am feeling the strength returning...tomorrow is my gift.  Besides we are making tree top angels with the street children on family night.  Imagine and Live in Peace,  Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  6. Hope you are feeling better today. Your words about the trees really touched my heart.

  7. If there is anybody that deserves health and happiness, it is you my friend.
    I do believe that the trees were crying for you, you are so in tune with every that's good in this world. I send you wishes of speedy healing and energy.

  8. Thank you all...I am headed to bed now but every time a bell rings...an angels get her wings....we made angels with tiny angels tonight. Art Saves Lives! PEACE. Mary Helen
