Someone special...

I feel I know this lady, her name is Therese and she is the wonderful writer of Ella's Child. I wrote and linked many of her posts to a post of mine here and Blogger swallowed it up. I could not recover it, It brought me to tears because, as I was recovering many of my favourite stories Therese has written, I felt I got to know her and her family intimately.
Therese is a very candid and yet soft story teller. Right now, her beloved Don who became a quadriplegic back in 1982 is in a Sydney Hospital awaiting his dream of returning home to die. Their country home that they have made together is just glorious, it is sanctuary, it is only right that it is where Don and Therese and their lovely adult daughters need to be. Oh and not to forget their other children, their animals!!
Last night I began reading Therese's blog from the very beginning. This lady is so gorgeous, courageous and so damned smart. I love her because she is fun, truthful and kicks but of all bureaucrats whether it be in the health system or parliament.
Anyhow, my thoughts are totally with this lovely family. I am guessing that Ali's Angel will guide Don on the next part of his journey when he is ready to let go.

What an unbelievably amazing woman.
I would be so bitter.
I sincerely hope that Don gets his wish. I would be so #$@%*'n mad!!

That croc in the fountain..

I am convinced that humans were never mean't to live there.

Theresa is wonderful, isn't she? I was so sorry to hear about Don.

They're in both thoughts and prayers.

Thanks for posting this. Hugs.

The main reason i love blogs, is humanity, i could watch people on this level for the rest of my life, struggles, chalenges, and beautiful stupid moments. in a word, i love life, in all its forms.

I couldnt even begin to imagine what therese is going through, i wouldnt wish that on anyone.
