Poppy

How can such a little fluff ball fill such a big space?
Quickly letting us know she was pivotal to our world.

She never asks for much – a warm spot, high five and a fuss.
But she some how filled my heart with those beautiful eyes & gentle soul.

Yet my beautiful one.. you have a battle ahead of you no one should have
Fighting to live, play, snooze, eat, cuddle & be so loved.

You watch the birdies outside, unaware of the battle that wages inside you.
I send you healing my beautiful one, hoping it can somehow stop the war.

I need to tell you how much I love you & how you’ve brought such joy.
Whether we beat this cancer or not, thank you sweet Poppy.

I was given such a precious gift when you came my way that summers day.
I’m beyond blessed to share your time and I love you so… thank you xx

Two words…

I find myself so sad & melancholy this day..
For today I got the news no one wants.
The news a lovely friend has had to bear.
Given 2 words that instantly change everything.
‘Brain tumour’ – such sickening, visual words.
Words that instil anger, fear and pain.
Anger that someone so lovely is gripped.
Fear at the thought of her battle ahead.
Pain in my heart for her & her family.
She gives out so much happiness to all.
She makes people laugh and smile each day.
It’s so hard to understand ‘why her?’
She has a husband/children/grandchildren.
There’s a battle like no other before her.
But she’s a fighter & I’ll shower her with healing.
Shine bright my lovely, funny, kind friend.
I am so much richer for having you in my life.
We’re all fighting with you and for you. xx

Transformation either way…

Many things in life can cause a transformation. Sometimes it’s for the better and sometimes it’s for the worse.

Think of the person that’s been told they have cancer and then fight against all the odds to survive. Their life is transformed and they know they have a second chance. Often they then live a fuller, happier life because they choose only to do what makes them happy as they have a new understanding of how precious life is. What about the person who has lost the most precious person in the world to them or maybe more than one person. Their transformation can be very different as they may wonder if life is actually worth living at all. They then can push the self destruct button and spiral down into total despair.

But maybe the person that has been given a second chance is the one that is supposed to pick up that person who has lost all hope. Maybe they are there to help them find a positive transformation from the sorrow they have gone through.

The master plan is complex… Do we know all of it’s twist, turns and pathways?

No we don’t and I don’t think we are supposed to… it is complex and some believe it’s all meant to be whilst others believe we are flesh and blood living each moment only.

I guess we’ll never know… or will we….
