Scars on the Soul and acts of Kindness

At birth we are full of wonder, new sights, sounds and smells envelope our senses.  We are more open to people, learning and life. Something happens along the way and each year as we grow older we start learning that not all in the world is good, kind or nice.  We harden and start blocking our senses in order to protect what we hold dear. … Continue reading Scars on the Soul and acts of Kindness

Give, Hope, Love, Live

So many times in life we shy away from things because we have been hurt before, we shy away from the very things that we want most of all. The fear of disappointment can sometimes take over our need or want, hiding it into the oblivion and warping our perceptions. Those perceptions can often get thrown “helter skelter” and as we go on they get … Continue reading Give, Hope, Love, Live

The life and times of an ordinary human being

Sunshine, that’s what you are…

One of the things that people often don’t realise is just how much they are appreciated during those rough times.  When we’re in the mix we aren’t always able to thank those of you that help us, sometimes the words, the right words just don’t come.   So if you are someone that has helped someone though a rough patch, be it right this minute … Continue reading Sunshine, that’s what you are…

Healing a damaged knee and the soul
