true love

My son, who will be appearing here shortly to eat a vast meal, just sent me a Mother's Day message via Facebook. "Saw this," he wrote, "and thought of you immediately." He knows me well.

Lucky me - I have a true and healthy friend whom I've loved practically since birth, who is always available (except when I'm travelling in Europe and even so, it's now available there if I get desperate, which I do not), always friendly and warm and mucky and delicious and smells like home. A gift.

This Mother's Day is a reward. It's stunning - warm and cloudless. The pergola is set up and the garden furniture is out, so the deck is the new living room. The garden is springing to life as I watch.  I have the binoculars out to look more closely at the cardinals at the feeder - Monsieur is orange, not scarlet. Last night at 11.30 I emailed a draft of the writing book to Don, my publisher, so it's out of my hands for awhile. Soon I'll turn on the radio and start making dinner for my family. My cup runneth etc.

I realized this morning that since childhood I've had a thing for the number 14. It has always been a special number to me - I posit in the memoir because of a neighbour girl called Andrea, who was 14 and whom I idolized. It was a great disappointment when I got to be 14, as detailed in the book, and it was not a very good year.

But maybe the special time wasn't the year I was 14, it's the year 2014. Because this year is turning out to be pretty incredible. I am grateful to the universe. And now it's time to cook.

I have been suffering from a deadly disease [HERPS] for the past 2 years now; I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby but until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how a spell caster helped someone in curing his HERPS disease, quickly I copied his email which is (doctorumiefanherbalcentre@gmail.com)
    I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to cast the spell which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after 45 minutes of casting the spell, I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I own him my life, if you are having a similar problem or suffering from any of these diseases such as HERPS,HIV,ALS,MND,CANCER,DIABETES just email him on (doctorumiefanherbalcentre@gmail.com) or call him on +2348134470041...
