Stand By Me

My wonderful friend S, who is so sage and exudes peace, came to my rescue last night. Her capacity to listen, to say the right thing at the right time, amazes me.  She declared that this is the worst it will ever be. My lowest point.  I needed to hear that. I needed to have…

‘People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.’ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross.   When I was a child, one of my favourite hymns to sing was ‘this little light of mine, I’m going…
