I need you

Blog Posted:5/2/2011 6:01:00 AM

Dear friends

Life has become even more challenging.My darling husband now has cancer.Can't quite believe it and although life must go on, at times everything seems so unreal and my emotions are in an upheavalI hope you don't mind me sharing this with you but I wanted to explain why I have not been so committed to SOUP recently.But I still so need you.

.Although I know that I have family and friends you and your words matter so much.You cheer me up with your funny rhymes.Your words can also comfort me and give me strength and make me realise although my own world is upside down others are suffering too and are in need of compassionand the hand of friendship.Also those of you that have faith of any kind inspire my own,though my poems/love'>love of God remains as strong as ever.

I have printed off my favourites from you for my own personal use so that whatever I need I know you will provide when I read them.Although all your works are special to me.I appreciate all that you are,your spirits and your humanity shine through your poetry.

I am so grateful you have all come into my life.Your names are too numerous to mention, but I want to thank you for what you give to me and I know will continue to give as you share your talents and skills and most of all yourselves.I realise a long uncertain road lies ahead,one maybe that some of you have travelled but I know that you are there and I will not desert you.

God bless you all and may His LOVE guide you and keep you safe.

My love to you June(sylvia) xxx

Dear James Andrea and Wilma-Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and prayers.My love for God will never alter no matter what happens in life.But I am merely human,and as vulnerable as the next person.So I am so grateful for your outpourings of love and compassion that give me strength and raise my spirits. I am so glad to know you and count you as friends. God bless you all and may the power of LOVE continue to guide you in your lives. Love June(sylvia)xx
