Evening, Wisdom and Beauty and a Request

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them,
but I can look up and see the beauty, believe in them and try to follow
where they lead.
 Louisa May Alcott
I learned tonight that my youngest daughter has been diagnosed with breast cancer. I would so appreciate your prayers and good thoughts for her and my family. It's been a difficult new year for us.
If you have made mistakes...there is always another chance for you...you may
have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call "failure"
is not the falling down, but the staying down.
 Mary Pickford

Oh Sylvia -- I am winging my good thoughts to you and your daughter. So many times your beautiful pictures and quotes have lifted my mood -- I hope I can return some of the Karma.

And I know for sure that diagnosis doesn't mean what it used to -- and I am sure she will come through it well (betting that she inherits her mother's positive attitude and fighting spirit!)


Arti said...

Will surely pray for her Sylvia. All will be fine, God willing.

Take care and know that there are so very many people all around the world sending good vibes over to your daughter right now.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
