thankfulness










Thank you for lighting candles for me

Thank you for lifting me up into the light

Thank you for surrounding me with your positive energies

Thank you for reminding me that lupus does not define who I am

Thank you for loving me regardless of what comes tumbling out of my soul

Thank you for believing that I can overcome even when doubt infiltrates my spirit


In my weakness,
you have carried a portion
of this burden
and added together,
my load has lightened.
Like a beam,
your light has shined
in my direction
to reveal the truth
which sets me free.
You have uncovered
this diseases frailty
and revealed the strength
I possess to keep fighting.
Joined are we in spirit,
with bonds
that are not made visible
with the human eye,
but are felt,
heart to heart.
How could I not
accept this gift,
but embrace instead,
the richness of love,
the warmth of light,
the strength of encouragement
and the renewing of hope.
So grateful am I,
that there is nothing else to feel,
but humility
and the grace
that you have extended to me
in my hour of desperation.
The mountain is moved
and once again
what lies ahead
resembles a path
that has been paved
with your love.

Where would we be if we didn't lift each other up? Keep believing in miracles of all sizes.

It is very easy to give support to such a loving soul.

It is we who are doubly blessed to have you in our lives.

More Reiki energy coming your way. It is coming to you and your entire family should you all choose to accept it. If not that is OK too. It is there for you.

Live Strong.
