Happy Diwali!

Today started so positively. Well actually it started with me dragging myself out of bed. I really didn’t want to get up. I love my bed so much. Pete said to sleep in and that it would be good for me but that lasted all of about 5 minutes. I can’t sit still for five mintues plus my days are like black holes! So that was positive I guess too.. but then it continued even more positively..

During yoga, kitty joined me again (love her) and during the stretches I cried -again. What is it with doing yoga and crying? Only these were happy tears. I had an overwhelming happy feeling and some of my wonderful friends popped into my head. I feel so lucky and grateful to be blessed with such support. I honestly cannot believe that they are so kind. I know I should stop saying that, ‘ I can’t believe..’. As it can come across quite negative but I don’t know how else to word it. I am simply humbled.

One of our lovely friends sent us a message this morning wishing us a ‘Happy Diwali’. She explained that it seems it was made for us both. The meaning of Diwali is that it is a festival which celebrates good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ingnorance. She went onto say; To Hindus, darkness represents ignorance, and light is a metaphor for knowledge. Therefore, lighting a lamp symbolizes the destruction, through knowledge, of all negative forces- wickedness, violence, lust, anger, envy, greed, bigotry, fear, injustice, oppression and suffering. I love it..Love and light.. that’s us.

Another friend, when we were altogether the other week, tied red wool to each of our wrists. Red symbolises blood. The intention is to bind our group, symbolising the circle of friendship and the incredible bond we share. The string was divided and each friend received enough string to create a bracelet. The string represents the connection of my friends and we look  at our bracelet of red string they think of me and send positive energy my way. Brilliant! 🙂 The big ball of wool is carried around by my Bear and he continues to expand the group as he sees more friends. I love the thought of all of us wearing it and feel empowered to work harder and try harder and live happily forever!

Pete told me last night that a client he has known for many years, has been praying for me in his synagogue with all of his community (that’s hundreds of people!). I am so truly touched. Again ovewhelmed.

With so much positivity and fluffy happy feelings, it really made me want to do nice things to show people how much I love and appreciate them….So I got to thinking. (Clearly I can’t say.. walls have ears and all that!).. smiley-innocent.gif


I contacted Christy today- the lady who told me about her experience with dendritic cell therapy. She is doing reasonably well apart from having a scare. She had a terrible chest infection for months and thought the canSer had gone to her lungs. On having a CT scan it turns out she doesn’t have canSer in her lungs but pneumonia!… BUT.. the canSer has not progressed at all!! This is wonderful news and I am so very pleased for her.

She advised that the fact I feel great is a positive sign and it could take time to get under control, as that was what she was told. Well I have everything crossed that it is working quickly! ha ha!


On the menu tonight; soya bean and avocado soup with cubed roasted spicy potatoes with some greens maybe whilst watching Masterchef! Oo I can’t decide what to eat now.. too many choices of greens! smiley-undecided.gif
