Where there is life there is always hope! and the white feathers are a calling card from your Angels, sometimes they leave pennies too! I know how you must have felt Jane, my Dad has been in poor health for many years due to a massive stroke, there have been times when the future looked bleak, but we always looked for the positive and encouraged him every tiny step,I really do believe positive thinking can move mountains, for anyone reading this who is interested, I am a moderator on a forum about positive thinking, visit www.cosmicorderingform.com and take a look at the forum, there are some really inspirational stories there!
