  1. I watched my younger brother die of cancer – it was the most difficult thing I ever did but also a great privilege to be there for him right to the end. I struggle with some things in my life but I know that I need to surround myself with those people and things that nourish my soul. Out of our personal experiences we can use our creative gifts to bless others as well as ourselves. Thank you Linda for sharing your abundant gifts!

      1. I agree with you Linda. It is a gift we need to guard carefully and protect ourselves when we tend to give out so much. I have learnt through the grieving process, that those who have travelled the same road are able to understand the pain and struggles.

      2. I also forgot to say, that while my brother was in palliative care saying goodbye to his three children, I got a call to say my Nan had passed away. That was tough because I couldn’t get to say goodbye because I was looking after my brother. I still miss them both.

  2. Just sitting in here for a moment, reading the prior comments and sending ❤️ to you beautiful souls. Life is fleeting, yet how fortunate we are to know what is important and what must be shared.

  3. I have loved and lost one of my brothers you can read about in a tag, Death, on my site. I agree with you, life is here one second and gone the next. If we remember now to cherish those moments each day with our loved ones the treasures are endless.
