“You are the sky. Everything else – it’s just the weather.”
This blog is for the many amazing women I’ve come across in my life who’ve influenced me and helped me become the person I am. It’s also for the men in my life who support me with respect and love and let me be who I am.
I’m still a bit shell-shocked after a few “procedures” in hospital over the last couple of weeks, but again I have to thank all of the medical staff at Crosshouse and Arran Hospitals for their care and humour in the face of annoying physical weakness (and their appreciation of my Hot Chili nail polish) I’m so grateful for the healing prayers and meditation that came my way and the opportunity again to remember that I’m not in charge, but I am much loved and if I let go and just breathe, I’ll understand more than if I twist and turn and try to find answers.
I’ve taken much comfort from the writings of the Buddhist nun Pema Chodron which were shared by a close friend who knows of my impatience and my searching for answers.
