A letter from my friend Robyn demonstrates that "art saves". A breast cancer survivor for many years, she has been going through a difficult time with it lately, which is only serving to make her spirit stronger. I know she will be fine. Every so often, Robyn orders what I call a 'care package' from me. She leaves the contents up to me. I choose items very carefully, wrap everything individually, and send her the package. Sometimes lovely things happen. She has given me permission to share this with you.
yesterday, 18th I had my operation as you know, I took one little gift to open while I was waiting to go to theatre (operating room).. and you will never guess what it was! the angel wing. I was truly surrounded by angels yesterday.
today 19th, I was resting on my cane lounge, looking at my pile of little gifts yet to be open and I had an urge to open one. the one that I knew i had to open was a little square package.. and inside a chain with a medal on it.. the St.Joseph, maria medal. perfect for today which is the Feast of St. Joseph. perfect for today our wedding anniversary.
I do believe that I am going to be fine.. all of these gifts are telling me that each time I open one.
also, the little pouch that I spoke of the other day.. I am using it to keep my bach flower rescue remedy in.. perfect because of the words on it: stay calm carry on..
anyhow, if you would like to share this on your blog, please do!
sending love always Robyn xoxo
