Life is an opportunity...

(this is my "one little word" for 2012, "fresh courage daily" will be my motto)

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. 
Life is a beauty, admire it. 
Life is a dream, realize it. 
Life is a challenge, meet it. 
Life is a duty, complete it. 


Life is a game, play it. 
Life is a promise, fulfill it. 
Life is sorrow, overcome it. 
Life is a song, sing it. 

Life is a struggle, accept it. 
Life is a tragedy, confront it. 
Life is an adventure, dare it. 
Life is luck, make it. 
Life is life, fight for it.
~ Mother Teresa (1910-1997)

 Just when we are happily able to now celebrate one parent recovering from something similar, another falls into the same diagnosis, smacking hard; 

Congestive heart failure 

(Heart failure, also called congestive heart failure, 
is a condition in which the heart can no longer pump 
enough blood to the rest of the body.)

Would you please, in your charity, offer a prayer of Thanksgiving for my husband's mother now out of hospital after a five week stay, AND ... for my father, who endured a very rough weekend, entered the hospital emergency ward yesterday, suffering from heart failure, and there remains himself for a few days? 

Would you please also assist us with continued prayer, that the team of doctors will be touched by the Master Healer, that all will be in His perfect plan and will for my dad.

Love you Dad!
