Hi Garf,

AHAhA really, you are drawing "the Lady" I could not imagine...yes it's really difficult because I guess she needs to be the mix of a great beauty but at the same time her body language and some parts of her needs to be hateful, dark, evil.

So you are an artistl that's great !!

Love, Sofia

Oh Sofia,

I am so sorry to read your latest post and that people have hurt you again. People like that annoy me very much and to do that to you again is for me unforgivable, especially when you were feeling low anyway. I can understand why you felt so low at the moment so we will just have to try and cheer you up as we have missed your words of wisdom on here. I think when someone like yourself has cancer, it is inevitable that you will have highs and lows but please let us know and we will do all we can to help lift your spirits just as you have done for many others in the past few months. As I write this to you I am having yet another hot flush as a result of my Hormone therapy which finished several months ago. The same thing happened to me when I was writing to Mickied and I told her I must be the only guy in Sussex that has to have an Electric fan on in winter to cool me down.!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sofia, please take care, sending you best wishes and hoping you soon feel more like the Sofia we all know and love, Brian

Hi Brian,

I just stay away from here because on those days I don't have energy to did anything. I tryed to write on here and on "my book" it was impossible...when I was with anger and other bad feelings I can't write, I can't function

I come here everyday to read and sometimes i feel the need to answer but I can't do much more... I blocked

But I will not let anyone else hurt me again. I'm too good to get away from people. I will protect me

love, Sofia

Hi all,

Have been so busy the last few days, I haven't had time to add to this thread. This latest one is by Abraham Lincoln. As this thread was started by Sofia and I know she likes reading this I will have to try harder to add to it more regular.

"I am a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn't have the heart to let him down".

I wonder how many people have found themselves in that same situation and they succeeded merely because others believed in them. I do  believe that when people have faith in us, we can accomplish more than we would have normally been able to do without that faith and belief backing us up.

Take care everyone, Brian

Good morning everyone,

I saw this quote this morning and relate to this one so much. It's by Anonymous (whoever they may be)

"Children seldom misquote. In fact they usually repeat word for word what we shouldn't have said".

This has happened to me so many times when my son was growing up and on many occasions caused me acute embarrassment. I wonder how many others have had the the same thing happen to them.

Have a good day, Brian.

Hello Brian,

Your quote reminded me of a time when we had a picnic with Dad and his wife, my sister and me and my stepbrother and stepsister.  My sister announced midway through her sandwich, 'Look at that fat bird over there' - she was referring to the overfed birds that were hovering around the picnic tables.  Instead our eyes fixed on the rather large lady sitting at the picnic table next to the 'fat bird' and we all nearly choked on our sandwiches for laughing.  It is a story that my sister has been reminded of ever since!

Anyway, its cold up north, I'm away back down to the fire, Katielouie.

Hi Folks,

I found this quotation today and how appropriate it is for this site. It's by William James.

"Act as is what you do makes a difference. It does",

Sometimes just a kind word or two, or even a laugh can help people on here more than we think possible.

Best wishes to everyone, Brian

Hi Folks,

This quotation is by Taylor Swift.

"This is a new year. A new beginning. And things will change".

My wish is that this year large strides are made in the treatment of cancer that have less side affects than present treatments.

Morning everyone,

Its snowing slightly as I write this latest quotation out and more is promised. My grandchildren will be so pleased as all three of them love having snowball fights which is why I wont be going near them today. I would probably end up looking like a snow man for their aim is much more accurate than mine as I have already found to my cost.

Today's quotation is by one of Sofia's favourite persons, Steve Jobbs and is as follows:-

"In good times and bad times, I'll be on your side for evermore, that's what friends are for".

Most of us have friends, but just as Steve Jobbs has written, a true friend is someone who will stand by us whatever happens. It doesn't matter who we are, we all have need of good friends at times.  I feel so sorry for those who have no friends at all(or family) for they must feel so alone. When my mother was in the last few weeks of her life in hospital,there were several elderly people who never had visitors at all according to my mother. So I aways said hello to them and spoke to them so they didnt feel so alone.

Take care in the snow and if any of you have to go out, travel safely.

Best wishes, Brian

This is a lovely one and so true.  We too have snow flurries and my garden is once again pretty having been cleared of snow yesterday by my grandson and his Dad to make a snowman who is grinning at me through the window. Did not quite get the snowdog companion but had a visiting fox yesterday who played like a puppy in the white stuff.  Have been out as far as our bird feeding area to top up with goodies and am walking to visit my Mum's care home after lunch(~takes about half hour normally but in my new zebra wellies I may slide along a little quicker) which should be refreshing!!!  Like you Brian when I visit her I often end up chatting to the other residents who are with it (and some who are not) and also the staff who are doing such a valuable job. Stay warm and cosy all. Depending on how much snow falls today could make getting to work interesting tomorrow.Jules

Good morning all,

Have been searching for quotations for this thread and came across this one. It's by Charles Dikens.

"The most important thing in life is to stop saying "I wish" and start saying "I will". Consider nothing impossible, then treat possibilities as probabilities".

There are so many people in life who have succeded where other have failed because they have adopted a similar attitude to this.

Have a good week everyone, Brian

It's a really good thinking Brian and remindes me another quote:

"nothing is impossible, there are just things infinitely improbable!" Laplace Demon

Hi all,

Brian, your last quote has reminded me of the screen saver that is on a computer screen that can be seen by the members in the Health Club at the site where I work.  It reads---


It is relevant for people doing a work out but it's also relevant to so many other people.

Hi Everyone,

Here is my latest quotation and its by Margaret Peters.

"Time has a wonderfull way to show us what reall matters".

The latest news on my father in Canada is not good. My sister told me the doctors still don't know what is wrong but one of them think it may be his prostate cancer coming back in other areas so still very worried.

On a brighter note, my 13 yr old granddaughter phoned me on Saturday to tell me she has won second place in a story writing competition. I am so proud of her.

Take care everyone, Brian,
