AWARE OF WHAT GIVES LIFE

I am celebrating my fourth anniversary of surviving a major accident. It was the second accident in two years, and there were many injuries. Though there is pain and though there are obstacles, I am so happy and grateful to be alive.

According to medical science, there is no reason for my recovery to be as successful as it is! The support of people like you has been key, particularly during the months when I could not yet walk properly. Now my goal is 10,000 steps a day.

According to medical science, there is no reason for my recovery to be as successful as it is! The support of people like you has been key, particularly during the months when I could not yet walk properly. Now my goal is 10,000 steps a day.

There are many measures of success -- weight is one, which I hope will follow from all the other successes and miracles in my life.

Thanks for walking with me.

Other Information:
As from a large heap of flowers many garlands and wreaths can be made, so by a mortal in this life there is much good work to be done.

The perfume of flowers goes not against the wind, not even the perfume of sandalwood, of rose-bay, or of jasmine; but the perfume of virtue travels against the wind and reaches unto the ends of the world.

There is the perfume of sandalwood, of rose-bay, of the blue lotus and jasmine; but far above the perfume of those flowers the perfume of virtue is supreme.

from the Dhammapada, Shakyamuni Buddha, Juan Mascaro translation

I saw your post on the message board where you suggested to set an alarm clock.... came over to your page and read your last blog entry. It's good to be reminded of the tools we have to be calm, expecially as I was feeling quite nervous at the moment.

Thanks for your encouragement on my blog about rediscovering enjoyment for cooking.
I like your profile image...Kuan Yin (or Kannon), the Bodhisattva of Compassion, yes? Something we could all use a lot more of in our lives, and to extend to others as well.
May your journey be a good one and your health and wellness shine brightly.

Jane

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog about Houston, my son, and the Ronald McDonald House. It was very kind of you to say that I am a good mother. I don't know about that, really. In the situation I am in, the only thing to do is the best you can, one day at a time. There isn't any way to make it easy.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day!!
