Hi everyone,

I apologise for neglecting this thread for a few days. This quote is by Anonymous.

"Home is where you can say anything you like cause nobody listens to you anyway".

I just bet the reason why this person wanted to stay anonymous, is so they don't get into trouble when they get home for writing this quotation in the first place.

Take care my friends, best wishes, Brian

Hi Jules and Garf,

Glad you both liked that one. Each day things are slowly returning to as near normal as I will ever be for as my wife says, I have never been normal!!!

I managed to visit our next door neighbour yesterday and even managed to drive the car to our local shop. So hope it wont be too long before I am able to chase the wife round the kitchen table once again

Take care both of you, Brian

Hi Folks,

There have been a lot of people on here recently who have a mother who is seriously ill or have lost their mother recently, so as a tribute to all our mothers and how much we owe them, when I came across this quote I knew I just had to share it with you all. It is unknown who wrote it unfortunately.

"I love my mother as the trees love water and sunshine - She helps me grow, prosper and reach great heights".

There's nothing much I can add to that except to say, I know my mother helped shape what I am and I owe her so much and miss her greatly.

Take care, Brian

Hi, it's me back again,

Just having posted a quotation regarding our mothers, I felt I had to post one about our fathers. It's also sad that it's not known who wrote this, it just said, written by anonymous.

"Any man can be a father, but it take someone special to be a dad".

Garf, I hope you like this one, for it's so true.

Regards to you all Brian

Thank you very much Brian,

You right in how correct the quote is and I like it very much. What a shame the writer is anonymous.

Hello again,

Today's quotations was written many, many years ago but is still as true today as it was then. It's by Sophacles.

"Grief teaches the steadiest mind to waver".

As time goes by and we all get older, it's a forgone conclusion that at some stage in our loves, we will all feel grief. For some people it will happen when they are young, for others if we are fortunate we will not feel it until we are older. But I don't feel that there is any age when we are properly able to cope with the loss of a loved one. As we get older we may have family of our own who can help but it is still the most painful experience we may ever have to face. One thing this site had taught me there is no right or wrong way to grieve and we all have our own ways of trying to deal with our loss and this varies quite considerably from person to person.

But I think most will agree, shareing our loss on here with others who know the pain involved, make it more bearable just to know that people on this great site that we may never meet, are there and offering help and support to all who need it.

Take care everyone, best wishes to you all, Brian

Hello once again,

I have just found this quotation and I would like to share this one with you all. It's by Marcel Proust.

"Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our soul blossom".

I have honestly never looked on the people who make us happy as gardeners but the more I think about it the more truth I see in  it.

Have a good weekend everyone, best wishes to you all, Brian

Hi Everyone,

I have today's quotation and it's by The Dali Lama and reads:-

"Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from our own actions".

Over the years I have met a few people who just look so miserable and often for no particular reason. They have never smiled or laughed or given even the smallest indication of enjoying life. I would just hate to live my life like that. I know all to well from reading so many stories on here about the rocks that life throws at us, that life is not easy sometimes, but life is made for living and to spend all of it being miserable like those people, is something I could not do. But we do have to work for happiness just as the quote states. I have to say on a personal level, I am happier now than I have ever been and am really enjoying my life.

Kind regards to you all, Brian

Hi Folks,

Time for another quote. Today's one is by Patti Davis and concerns grief.

"Life lesson 3. You cant rush grief. It has it's own timetable. All you can do is to make sure there are lots of soft places around - beds, pillows, arms, laps".

This is so true and I have the feeling this person is speaking from experience.

I did look for life lesson's 1 & 2 but couldnt find them.

Take care my friends, Brian

Hi Brian,

So true about grief having it's own timetable and that it can't be rushed.  Grief also has a tendency to remind you that, just when you think you might be on top of it you find that you just aren't.

Take care.

Hi Folks,

I have another quotation I would like to share with you all. This one is by Helen Keller and reads:-

"Alone we can do so little. together we can do so much"

This applies to so many things in life, but I fell it particularly applies to this site. When we are suffering pain, either as a patient or a carer, we often feel so alone and distressed. But with the help of so many wonderful people on here offering help and support, it enables us to get through some very difficult and painful times much easier than we could have done solely on our own.

Take care everyone and keep on doing what you are doing, best wishes to all, Brian
