Christmas '08 brought with many blessings. I have been overwhelmed by the love and friendship that has flowed into my life over the past few days.
Some months ago I received a message from Spirit Son Jeremy telling me it was time to get in touch with a school friend Marie. We have managed to catch up only 2 or 3 times in the past 45 years. I telephoned her, promising that I would make the effort to visit as soon as possible knowing that she lives only hours from me.
Marie has experienced much pain in her life due to serious degeneration of the spine. Pain is her constant companion!
Having recently become the proud owners of their first computer she decided to develop new skills and record a Christmas album using family members. Husband Eric and wife Marie performed in a band and their three children all have natural ability making music their life. I received a copy of the CD in yesterday's mail.
The CD 'Christmas Angels' has been produced by Marie herself while the children and grandchildren all performed vocals. I was thrilled to receive a gift that touched me deeply. There is a particular song called 'Christmas Angel' in which Marie has written and performed the words and music. It came as a true gift from heaven!
Today we had a lovely day with 'The King's' family and it was with a deep sense of peace that we were heading home when I felt the area of my right breast only to discover that I have another breast lump.
As I look back on this day I wonder what will be most lasting memory?
Fortunately, I have an appointment with my doctor in Sydney for Tuesday. It was to be about my pain levels. Now! Who knows!!
