May 25th

“Consider the rights of others before your own feelings, and the feelings of others before your own rights.”
John R. Wooden (b. 1910) basketball coach, author
I always try to put others first in my life,
my family,
my friends,
and
also others.
At the moment though I am being put first by them.
Even Serena a total stranger but now a new friend,
has taken the time to write to me and encourage me
and give me advice on my 365 challenge.
She herself had been into hospital at
the begining of the year but managed to carry
on her 365 challenge.
My fellow 365'er's on UK Scrappers
are also being very supportive
and
last but not least.
all my fellow bloggers,
because it is there wonderful
comments that keep me coming back
here and posting!

“True Friend"
~Author: CindyLee
When you are hurting.
And all it seems to do is rain.
When your heart aches.
I won’t leave you in pain.
When your world is clouded over.
And you don’t know who to turn to.
When all you do is cry .
Come let me help you.

When all you troubles and fears
Seem to bring you tears.
And all you need is a shoulder
My shoulder I will lend and dry your tears
When your world is out of control.
And your life no longer a straight line.
And the strength you can not bare.
I will give you hope that it will be fine.
When you just want to share
Your hopes and dreams to be.
You can trust me.
For I am here for you cause
I am your true friend.

I can only echo what everyone else has said. Wonderful journalling and you deserve the support you're getting, I get so much out of reading your blog. Sometimes you can only give others what they need from you, if you see to your needs first.

On many a day your blog has lifted me so it's only right that I return the favour by sending you best wishes for the week ahead.
Will add you to my prayer list too and say a little extra one for a speedy recovery
