We never know what others are or have suffered.  I wrote this after reading Liza’s blog today.  It was full of truth and surprise.


The hope lies in trying

In living and defying

The odds that say no

Standing tall after the blow

Refreshing life and understanding

With strength and friends banding

Against the hurt pain and sorrow

Continuing strong and more so grow

Into a life that is worth living

Laughing sharing and giving

When we can and when we should

To friends family and neighbourhood
