Giggles, Alison – I am so glad that mine wasn’t the last message and that we are still visiting with Linda, but not in a hospital any more, but her own dear home.  Alison, I am so sorry your pipe story isn’t over – especially in that freezing weather!  

Benji, came running to see what was wrong (or rather, right!) when he heard my squeals of delight at the thought (no matter how imaginary) of your coming to live in South Africa (for a change of water pipe history!) with us.  

Thanks for the lovely things you said about Linda and me!  You are pure gold, yourself – or rather, better than gold, a mountain stream!

Thank you, Margherita, for your kind words too.

Linda, please listen to Karilea and Kate and all of us and your family and rest more than YOU think you need to – that way you will recover sooner!  I keep wanting to pinch myself to see if it is real that you are back in Pip!

Love and light and POWERPUNCH prayers

This thread that Dear Diana started ~ and maintained!! ~ has been like a life line for me during my 2 months in hospital. Over the years I have joined a few other poetry sites just to get a feel for them and I always come back to PiP. It's like coming home. Actually, I've never left his home ~ for home is where the heart is and this circle of friends is where mon coeur lives. Thank you all for sharing so much of yourselves and it has been wonderful to get to know you all better! ~ and to know you, is to love you! Responding to each one of you individually whether it be to your comments, your emails, your phone calls, poems, stories, cards etc. is somewhat overwhelming for me. But please know this, that every blessed mot by every blessed friend poet, has meant the world to me. Yes, my caring friends, I'm not out of the proverbial woods yet, but I know that I am headed in the right direction.

God bless you all!
Love & Poet Light,
Linda xo...

You share so much love all the time, dearest Linda, that it is only natural to wrap you in love too.

It really fills me with deep gratitude that you are "headed in the right direction!", YES!

Love and blessings, sweet friend.

Dear Linda,  It's so good to see you checking in here and to know that you are heading in the right direction.  Fight the good fight as you have done up to now and your two months in hospital will become a long lost memory.  

Thank you for your comment on my poem about the feather.  Yes, we are believers!  I didn't thank you there because it was so far down the page when I saw it but I was certainly delighted to see it.

I'm also presently battling some difficulties but like you I aim to ... hang in there and overcome!  Look after yourself!

Lots of love
Helen

So, my dear, I'll question here...
to be with Alison, such a friend...
we know you're healing, and that you're dealing
but just to what such end?

Please give a clue,
as we all know you...
quiet, you are not!

Allow a nod,
a peaceful bob...
and tell us that you
are on the job!

Hello, my friends and fellow poets!
As one of my earlier poems indicated, "Earth Life Ain't Easy"
While dealing with the physical maladies that prevail, I've been hit in the solar plexus by a plethora of assaults on my emotions. In many ways, they're even more difficult to contend with ~ but contend, I will. Hopefully in time, "contend" will ease into a state of content. In the meantime, I'm chilling, healing, 'going within', and praying with all my might that everything turns out for everyone's Highest & Best! .
Nosireebob! Earth Life Ain't Easy! ~ but it certainly does have it's moments of bliss, joy, and love ~ which is what I wish for all of you dear souls!
It's spring and the sap is rising in the trees ~ as it is within me. I'll be alright! After all, as one of my nicknames would suggest, I'm an "Unsinkable Molly Brown".

Sending lots of Love & Light,
Linda/EA

I do hope with all of my heart that life may get easier for you, beloved Linda! Spring is the time of renewal and rebirth, may Universal energy bring you all the healing and joy you deserve.

Thank you for your wishes, just know that you are in my thoughts and within my heart, always, while waiting for you to come back here.

Love and hugs and divine blessings, my friend.

Linda, you jolly well better stay the Unsinkable Molly Brown!  The tears are coursing down my face with joy and gratitude at everyone's love for you, and of course my tears are tinged with a lot of scary concern.  

It seems that since last night, after 7 days of Hell and expense and non-Internet-connection with my new wireless 3-G connection that my connection problems are over.  I hope I am not talking too soon, but everyone assures me that I am not.  Now, after years of problems with my previous ADSL connection, especially in the last few months, I can get in here - and even type my replies directly into the "Your Reply" box - even long ones!!! without getting disconnected several times!!!), I am able to move about and get in here too.  

Don't worry about us worrying - don't come in more often than you are able to - you know the song I sing for you always - it is more important that you REST, REST AND REST AGAIN!

If you just post a poem, new or old, from time to time (without a picture and voice-recording in the new ones if that takes too much out of you), we will understand.  We will also understand if you don't reply to our replies or to our poems - we KNOW you want to and that is more than enough - we just need you to REST, REST AND REST AGAIN!

Lots and lots of love and light and POWERPUNCH prayers

Yesterday I have called you, dearest Linda, as I longed to hear your voice. It was both joy and pain when talking to you. Joy for the mere gratefulness for our connection, pain for the fact that you have still to fight some serious health issues. How I wish you were well, how I wish you could be the Linda who kept this site going, making everybody happy with your presence, with your wonderful and brilliant poetry and your uniquely spirited and loving comments and replies.
I am sorry I probably didn't find the right words to express my love and my deep appreciation, but whatever I said came from the heart, where you reside permanently.
How I wish I could hug you in person.
Meanwhile here are my virtual hugs, but still they are full of loving vibrations.
May Our Heavenly Father grant you the miracle of healing and the gift of recovering enough strength to enjoy life again.
I love you.
Margherita

I truly apologize for my absence and not responding sooner to these heartfelt and truly appreciated replies. The doctors couldn't hold off any longer putting me on dialysis. My heart has not been strong enough but it got to the point where I was damned if they did and damned if they didn't. Both my heart and my kidneys were failing. Fortunately, my heart is holding up to the rigors of renal dialysis. It's exhausting but I have noticed some improvements.

God bless you all,
Love,
Linda/EA xo

I am so glad you are feeling even a little better.  I realize what you are going through is sure not any fun, but being a Canuck you will see this through and come out of it all with flying colors.  Stay strong and positive, and know you have friends praying for you at your home here away from home. Take care.

Oh, Linda Angelo Terrestre, can't tell you how much I enjoy reading your words here, even if the situation is still so serious, but you are here, speaking to us and this is such a gift.
May God and the Angels accompany you through this tough time and fill you with the necessary energy to ENJOY LIFE and to BE WITH US!
I feel so very grateful within my heart for your presence here. THANK YOU!
I love you with all of my heart.

Oh, dearest Linda, the tears are rolling down my cheeks as a result of very mixed emotions.  I am flooded with light and love so happy am I to hear from you again, yet aching for the suffering you are going through, though with such determination and strength.  I am glad there are some improvements, even though the dialysis takes such a toll on you.  I hadn't yet received an email notification of your reply in this thread, but our very dear friend Margherita so kindly alerted me to your reply for which I am very grateful as you can imagine.

As I tell you in my forbidden-to-reply-to-so-you-can-rest emails to you and Shannon, my prayers for you are still POWERPUNCH ones, and I thank God for letting you know how loved you are by just about everybody on the planet!  

Love and very, very gentle hugs and prayers for as many miracles and as much comfort and improvement as possible, dearest Linda

Linda darling, I m so sorry. I am praying for you and wish you the very best of health. The angels will come and surround you and take care of you.

I am so sad about what is happening to you; my beautiful and talented 'soul sister.' Hang in there and know I am with you in spirit.
