In the spirit of Christmas and as a huge thank you to all of you who have blessed this little blog with such great comments in my “best life possible” series, I am giving away my copy of The Power of Illness To Change Your Life by Kavi Jezzie Hackaday who blogs here on WP at Live a Holistic Life

Although he does not blog often, when he does, his posts are full of wonderfully helpful health filled content.

I purchased Kavi’s book through Amazon, and I did not want to put it down, finishing it in two days.  This is a major feat for me as I am a very slow reader.  I found it easy to read and understand, with it being part autobiographical and part how he healed his autoimmune disease that he was told was incurrable.

Please leave a comment if you would like to have an opportunity to win my USED (very used) copy.  I am so very sorry, but this is only available for those in the US due to shipping costs.

The winner will be drawn December 10th, 2019 from names of those who leave a comment, by one of my children.  I will contact you immediately for your shipping address and the book will be shipped via USPS media mail.

Happy Learning!

…..or maybe just a hundred or so.

Although this post has little to do with living simply with chronic illness, I wanted to write down why I chose the picture I did as the “theme” for this blog.  Yes, the picture was one of the free choices, but once I saw the photo I knew it was perfect.

In my imagination the picture creates an image of  a small farm in the late fall with a barn standing proudly next to the beautifully sunlit apple orchard.  The barn made me think of me, weather beaten, worn, tired and working hard to remain standing against all that mother nature continues to throw at me.  I look functional and I still have an important job to do but the outside looks so much stronger than what in going on inside.

The trees represent those of us with chronic illness standing so alone, yet gathered together for a common purpose.  We are bare and vulnerable to the elements without the covering of leaves and fruit and the health that others take so much for granted.  We were once bursting with the fullness of life, just like the trees in the spring and summer, but now it is autumn, with the hope that spring will come again.

It is dawn and with it comes the promise of a new day.  Each new day gives us a fresh start  with endless possibilities and hopes of a miracle.  Maybe, just maybe, this day will bring a miracle for you and for me.  Here is to new days, hopes, and dreams that just may come true.
