Don’t stand and weep

This is my all time favourite poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye. A friend sent it to me when my mother passed.

Don’t stand beside my grave and weep,
For I’m not there, I do not sleep.

Nothing to fix

29 Nov

The conclusion I came to a long time ago is, “we don’t have to be fixed to be healed.” We must be flexible enough to bend to what life throws at us, not the other way around. Having a certain belief doesn’t take away pain, stress or illness we may have to deal with in the future, but it allows us to understand.

Having to cope with an illness, challenge or a disability doesn’t mean we’re broken or damaged. It’s just something we’re born with. We’re human having a human experience and that means we’ll …

Understanding the signs

Sewing a seed

23 Nov

As a child I said very little. I wasn’t encouraged to think for myself, so I thought more than I said. Years on, I do things very differently. Sewing a seed is a thought we set in motion, a thought that will take root, possibly grow and blossom into something that takes place and bears fruit.

That thought should eventually have a much greater impact on that person’s life, but they won’t necessarily understand or know that at the time the seed has been planted. These thoughts tend to have …

Problems for parents

Usually when children are young they have small problems and therefore their problems will always seem easier.

It may be that when children grow into adults, parents find it difficult to help their children with their problems, because they’re dealing with adult problems. That part for any parent isn’t easy and …
