This was my introduction to you all. Thank you again for all of the kind welcome replies.

Not sure if this a place to write this, but wasn't sure where else to put it - and need to share if it's okay. If not - I trust the moderator will remove my post for me.

Today I discovered quite by "accident" that my oldest sister, who was like a mother to me, has breast cancer. She'll have surgery on Thursday, Dec. 17th.

In addition, her oldest daughter is having brain surgery later in the month, and I have another oldest niece in another state who's dealing with many serious health issues.

While I understand in a logical way, that I cannot control the outcome, and that there are so many people in the world suffering far worse ~ I pray for all people everywhere ~ I'm hoping if you choose, you will think about those who are dear to me.

My own death of the body holds no fear for me. I would trade place with them in a heart beat. Knowing each of us is connected, yet traveling on an individual soul path - lost my train of thought.

Very tired this evening. No replies are necessary - it helped me to write there here - the place where "Love Grows." I have reaped so many wondrous benefits by coming here as often as I'm able.

In gratitude and with love, Laura

I just want to say that I don't believe there should ever be a comparison between what she/he/they are going through. Each individual and their details are important and worthy. What one goes through never negates what another is bombarded by. There is no "Less or More"... there is what is and meeting it with all you've got... and much you haven't... yet... but it comes....

Thinking of you and your loved ones... I've seen miracles of human and medical impossibilities... I hope you will also, Laura!

Thank you reading what I wrote, and for your kind, thoughtful reply.

I've settled down since I wrote that post, knowing and accepting that it's not for me to determine the outcome in anyone's life.

Back to bed for awhile - very cold, windy in CT. Hope all is well with you.

luv Laura

Welcome Vasundhara :)

Thank you so much for your kindness. My sister came through the surgery fine, and I spoke with her yesterday.

Even though we've lived too far apart to visit much, she is my soul companion and we understand each other well.

She was like a Mom to me when I was little, and for that I will always be grateful.

Hope you like it here, and best wishes to you!

Thanks again - :) You have warmed my heart - Laura
