Just the way I like it. Itemized for simplicity, sincerely from a heart that is concerned for the good of others. I read this post and thought it right to share. Grab the lessons in it for you and do what is best. I’m extracting mine already! It sincerely is worth sharing!

A Leaf in Springtime

“To learn and not to do is really not to learn. To know and not to act is really not to know.” ~ Stephen R. Covey

Three years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I can tell you there is nothing quite like the sheer terror of tottering on the edge of a deep yawning abyss and peering down with wide stricken eyes.

I remembered clawing helplessly at the remnants of my life’s best laid plans. I remembered for the first time in my life, growing old seemed such a blissful prospect. I remembered being jolted wide awake.

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me.

The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!

  1. Dear Teecee, thank you so much for visiting and for this reblog. I appreciate your kind words and this generous gesture. I am touched to know that this post has blessed you. It is always an honour for me to meet people whose chief concerns are to love, to care and to share. I am blessed by your hope and the message of peace you send out to the world. Warmest regards, Sharon

    • You are always welcome! You wrote from the heart and I appreciated it. Your words were unique and sweet; they resonated with me. I just did what I thought best and I’m glad that you appreciate it. Life is beautiful when we share. We learned that others might learn and we teach so that others will not repeat our mistakes. The world will be a better place if we stop keeping things to ourselves. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a beautiful response behind! 🙂

  2. God, I can so imagine that!
