100% Hits: The Best of 2007

My crop of "Reverence?" by seeks2dream

After getting nowhere fast this morning I happened on Imelda's posting about a woman who has been told she's only a year left to live. Imelda asks: If this past year had been your last year on earth, what in it would have left you glad at the end?

One thing - learning to smile even when in pain and finding that a true smile (not a grin and bear it grimace) really does ease the pain. Especially the half-smile of the Buddha.

Very courageous to want to live one's ultimate moments with a smile, even half a smile...

You are truely a Guru!
I think I would be grateful that I've said 'yes' to help offered.

Caroline said...

Joy Eliz - ha ha... its not me that's the guru...

Caroline said...

And Tinker - sorry I thought I'd already replied to your comment - thank you - the pain has been a great lesson... lessening it has been a great challenge... :-)

Caroline said...

And Krimo - what is happening here? I thought I'd answered you too...

Its not courage - just being pushed to limit and finding that's what has to happen... hard to explain any further...

Hello Caroline :) I completely agree with "being pushed to limit and finding that's what has to happen"!

Family...cousins, aunties, siblings, uncles, nieces, nephews.

We all made my dying auntie happy to the end. I hope.

Last year, when my cousin was going through a dreadful divorce, we were all there for her.

The magpie made me smile... Thanks :)

Anonymous - strange that we are so obstinate as to need pushing so far!

Tony - Well I know a good one...

GG - you are lucky to have such supportive family. My family seems to have become very scattered and not so supportive...

Krisse - its fun isn't it - that's why I borrowed it. I've finally got it together now...

MP - glad you liked it!
