THANKFUL THURSDAY - AND I HAVE SO MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR.


Good Morning from a beautiful clear morning in Adelaide - well it was when I started writing to you. Such a lot has happened since I started this about five hours ago.    The sky is still blue, the wind is coming from the north and it is hot a very drying. I have been shopping, posting  a package to United States, faxed some papers for Jenny, been to the Pharmacy and made the girls at the Post Office laugh for a long time.
Pharmacy girls gave me Lindt Chocolate for Christmas.

Home again and shopping away - I decided to check my email and there was an email from Transplant Nicole (my Coordinator) telling me they have received a Christmas Card for me from my Donor Family and that it is in the mail to me now.  I am quite blown away by the kindness of this family at a time when it is the anniversary of the loss of their loved one - they thought of me.  Yes there have been tears but not of sadness - I am totally in awe of the strength of these people and the courage they show and blown away by the Medical skills which keep me alive.

I used to think that I could not go on
And life was nothing but an awful song
But now I know the meaning of true love
I'm leaning on the everlasting arms

If I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

See I was on the verge of breaking down
Sometimes silence can seem so loud
There are miracles in life I must achieve
But first I know it starts inside of me, oh

If I can see it, then I can be it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly


Hey, cause I believe in me, oh

If I can see it, then I can be it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

Hey, if I just spread my wings
I can fly
I can fly
I can fly, hey
If I just spread my wings
I can fly
Fly-eye-eye

What more could I wish for this Christmas time - my gift is in the mail from a family at a time of grief, yet special enough to reach out to me.   I am overwhelmed.  How brave and courageous they are.

I shared this news with someone very special who shares my joy and marches to the beat of the same drum, then with a  my family  and a Liver group - I had to email them because I couldn't have spoken on the phone for tears and they would have gone into panic mode thinking there was something wrong.   

With all the lovely support I have and the people who love me and care for me I Believe I can Fly and on that lovely happy note I am going to have to catch up on the work that has waited this morning while I cried and came to terms with this news.   There is not a day goes by when I do not think of this wonderful kind man and I am thankful for the gift of "Oliver" who keeps me alive.   The love of friends and family keeps me grounded and safe and the support from people all over the world helps me soar on eagle wings.

I Believe I can Fly.


A Moment of Stillness for today:


At birth,
we are given and angel,
a protection,
a song of courage.
And all we need to know 
is that it is there. 

My love and care to you all and thanks for visiting The Musings of My Heart - a happy, totally overwhelmed heart today.



(No Christmas Music today - don't worry thought Tinselitis will be back tomorrow because I think it is incurable.

I believe you can and do fly! You just have to "believe" it!
