In This Life…

Heart-shaped cloud

It’s a brand new year and

all the calendars been reset to January again.

You found unresolved intentions abandoned way before June of last year

indicating any new resolutions made today are sure to flop.

So, what’s a person to do




Throw in the towel and give up?

Someone said,

before you give up…

Find Wisdom

in this book

notes left behind by Brooke and Keith Desserich.

Notes Left Behind

“…today is the only thing to be lived for…” 

Wisdom from up above through a little six-year-old girl,

Elena Desserich…

reading this book can teach you

…”how to live, how to love and how to laugh…and do amazing things

and perhaps even assisting with making and keeping resolutions this year

because there are many little children who need the best of you

since fighting the deadly

pediatric brain cancer is

difficult enough…

    Living life to the fullest is the way to go. Its not easy but we learn from others, such as this post. There’s so much opportunities for love, peace and joy…. We just need to take it and keep it in our hearts. 2012 is a year of better things…

      The painful life lessons are the hardest to ride through but probably the ones we need the most to get us to become the best we can be…traveling with thoughtful neighbors as yourself makes the journey easier. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    Volunteered with an art initiative/project in a children’s hospital to work with terminally sick children and their families. It will floor you how wise these little children are. So strong…and funny, too. Nice post.

      You are so right…it looks like we help these children during their tough journey but in reality, they are the ones teaching us what is important in life. I bet they produced masterpieces to share with you and the community. 🙂

      The hardest moments came as I followed the journal and seeing. Elena’s physical transformation that came with the medical treatments and drugs she had to go through. This little girl thought she was getting fat so wanted to cut back on her eating but it was really the side effects of the steroids that made her bloat. Bless her soul, her family and may she rest in peace.
      Thanks for visiting Caddo.
