Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Healing thoughts & prayers please (Nigel Paterson)
I guess I've been taking a bit of a back seat over the past few days...been concentrating on composing. Apart from the fact that it's something I enjoy immensely, the 'creative process' has helped lift the severe depressive episodes I have been experiencing over the last month or so. What is also pleasing is to read your posts, safe in the knowledge that our Thread is in good hands.
       So we have information about the snow storm in America & Canada; beautiful words from a beautiful song (would it be considered a hymn?)...more folks in need of our thoughts & prayers...interesting personal anecdotes & a cheery sprinkling of humour. Nourishment for the Heart & Mind.
       Jane is 'between treatments'. She has finished with the radiotherapy, but can't resume chemo for another couple of weeks. She remains cheerful, but needs plenty of timeouts to rest. Jane is trying to set herself one, achievable task, job, a pleasurable, personal moment. One special thing for each day. So far, she has not missed a day. She is a wiz in the kitchen, so that's where she often ends up, but what the hell, her sense of satisfaction & achievement is worth it's weight in gold. Jane has even gone out of her way to make (and buy) diabetic friendly food, just for me. With everything she has on her mind, she still makes time for others. I love her so much.
      Keep warm, stay safe,
                                       With Love,
                                                      Nigel & Ann.
