haven’t read anything from you in here lately and hope you are doing well! (Palm, I read an answer from you to the daily question, though)
My best wishes to you, I am thinking of you both! :-))
I am desperate because my whole entry which I had almost finished has just disappeared! It is so difficult because my children, when they don’t have their mobiles or computers, are always quarreling with each other or arguing with me (for example if I am writing on my computer or phone from time to time at a moment when they may not have theirs) and this is a big challenge … OMMM!
Now my husband is on holiday and it is not better … I would like hi...
Now my husband is on holiday and it is not better … I would like him to get them engaged in cooking or other activities, but that does’nt really work. I have myself much housework to do and I seem to be the coach for everybody here, but I don’t want to do that any more.
Ok, as I am short on time let me just say THANK YOU for all your birthday wishes!!
Diane, best wishes and congrats to you, too, although you only mentioned that you had the same birthday month, but I don’t know if you celebrated already or not …
Manda, wonderful that you are at home, have the help of many lovely friends and are getting better and better! I am so happy with you!!
Pilgrim, hope you will get exams results soon and I wish you that a big sigh of relief will follow!! I am praying for you!
Aine, good luck with your clearing out!! And much energy to do that !
Anna, thank you for your regular posts and enjoy the rest of your
Kevin, thank you for your good wishes and I have answered to your photo below! Wishing you a steady healing!
I am happy that autumn is coming, my favourite season of the year! Yesterday I enjoyed some time with a pilgrim friend just sitting outside in a deckchair, and she said the same thing. We seem to have many things in common …This is new for me also! Having a friend … and just enjoying myself together with someone else (who is a woman above all). I think I need some female energy when I live with 3 persons who are so different in some ways … and interesting in things which are so strange for me!
Enjoy the second half of August everybody! I will try to do that, too!
Many blessings to all of you, and good healing to Manda!
Hi Anna, I can’ t answer to your post below, but I will write here for everyone else also! Very interesting the sanctuary near Pompei, never heard of it, please tell me later. I am sorry that you have such a great heat in Italy! Hope you get some rain soon!

This week my children are with the grandparents as my mom came to celebrate my younger son’s birthday last Sunday, and then took both children to my parents’ and sisters town where they can spend time both with grandparents and one of my sisters (the other one is on a holiday).
I was happy to have some time for myself but had some things to do (last week it was so hot that I didn’t move much and when I did, felt awful …) Two days ago I finally had a medical appointment because I felt awful for some days before … Thanks to God it is only a virus, and the doctor tested cancer frequencies on me (it’s a special method he uses) and found that my body doesn’t respond to any of these frequencies … which is very GOOD NEWS! I was so depressed for my other symptoms before … but now I feel reassured. Yeah!
Well, the week went by quite rapidly, and it is already Friday. Yesterday afternoon and during the night we had big thunderstorms, and the rain has cooled down the air which was necessary! I worry about the climate change and harvest losses, and I notice that my tomatoes I grow on our balcony are very few this year and ripe so slowly … I don’t use chemical methods and products, I never did, but I wonder why everything is so different this year. We also had very few bees and bumblebees, when in previous years there were always many of them …
The climate change is being felt everywhere now, we can’t ignore it any more. That makes me worry very much! Hope that the bees come back next year … I mean we live near the wood, there are even beehives not far, and here is a place where I thought we were in nature … but I am aware that some of nour neighbours do not use ecological products like we do in their gardens …
Otherwise, I am preparing a birthday come-together with my family members at the end of next week, before we go on a holiday. My 50th birthday is at the end of this month, and I won’t be here, so we celebrate it before! Afterwards, school begins and other family members are on their holiday.
I really would like to make a big party for my birthday (we have never done that in our family), but I don’t know how to do this. I am thinking of inviting my pilgrim companions in september and make a second party, we’ll see … With my family it’s mainly going to a restaurant, but I have insisted to have cake and coffee afterwards in our condominium (I want to do it outside, and as our balcony is too small, we will use a sort of carriage gateway which leads to our so called “village square” – difficult to describe – which is asphalted. All the green spaces here are either private or inclined, so we can’t sit there, but the children can play there!
Ok, now you know my latest news!
Big hugs to all of you, and have a beautiful week-end!
Mary, Pilgrim, Palm … thinking of you and sorry that I didn’t answer directly to your last comments on my behalf!
I check in here quite irregularly and often only for a short moment, but am thinking of you, I want to reassure you!
Thank you for all your thoughts, and I hope you can & do enjoy your summer (holidays)!!
Much love to all of you, Ursula

PS: I don’t mean to offend anyone if I don’t mention all the names … I am thinking of Cintia (please write again!), Alicia, Charla (where are you??) grateful sea, Kevin, and all the others, too!
Blessings, prayers and much love,
Amazing pictures, Kevin, and I feel your joy in rowing (that I know from your posts of course) when I look at the pictures.
So happy to read that your health is getting better although you have to wait a year for full recovery … The most important thing is that you feel good inside (which you seem to do 🙂 and are able participate in what is important and joy giving to you!
So enjoy! And be well! Ursula
have you seen the film ‘Kedi’? I have just been to the cinema and it’s for cat people … Although I do not have animals, I read about the film and decided to see it. It’s about cats living in the streets of Istanbul and people who feed them.
It’s a wonderful and poetic film! I recommend it!
I wanted to say “grateful” not “able” in the first sentence …
I imagine how you are able for the progress in cleaning out, and I have had the same project for some time. Well, I progress slowlier than you do, but it comes ‘in waves’ … I imagine your relief when another load goes to the Goodwill!
Congrats to your family of choice and the man who helped you with the truck and the sofa! It is good to give on the one hand an to receive when you need it, on the other hand … literally! That’s the flow of...
Congrats to your family of choice and the man who helped you with the truck and the sofa! It is good to give on the one hand an to receive when you need it, on the other hand … literally! That’s the flow of life, and for me it’s a great feelig when you experience it!
Raspberry is great, and we had some (grown of our own) before I went to surgery, when I came back from my pilgrimage. Each time I harvested a few of them and ate them, I imagined how they were good for me, as I heard raspberry is especially powerful against tumor cells!! So it was my self grow medicine against my illness! And I am sure it contributed to my good health! Now I have to wait for next year … I bought some a few days ago, but there is no comparison with my own ones!
Have a good week-end, enjoy making jam and enjoy your friend’s delight when you give it to him!
And think of making a relaxing pause from time to time!
how are you doing?? I am someone who responds strongly to the weather, too, in many ways. This year it was often definitely too hot for me, and I fear that climate change is enhancing that! I am glad that it’s raining today, nature definitely needs water … but if the whole summer were like that, I wouldn’t appreciate it either.
I hope you will have some beautiful August days (August is not finished yet :-), and you can enjoy your daughter being with y...
I hope you will have some beautiful August days (August is not finished yet :-), and you can enjoy your daughter being with you, and other joys which are there!
I wish you that your body can relax and feel well and easy!!!
Blessings to you and a beautiful week-end,
Manda, I hope that your surgery went well yesterday! Sending good vibes & energy!
Hugs <3 <3 <3 <3,
I want to apologize because I had had in mind writing to you before, aroung my surgery, when you talked to be about your upcoming operation. I was so busy with my own matters that I forgot.
I admire though how you have so many projects and events in which you are constantly – it seems to me – participating! That’s wonderful, and I have learned with the time that it is good if you can do that and be present instead of worrying about the future .. So...
I admire though how you have so many projects and events in which you are constantly – it seems to me – participating! That’s wonderful, and I have learned with the time that it is good if you can do that and be present instead of worrying about the future .. So your attitude is VERY helpful! That’s fantastic!
Manda, I am sure – as many others here – that with this positive attitude you will be well soon, and be assured that I am thinking of you, praying for your surgery to go well and that you will BE PAIN-FREE SOON!!
Wonderful that you have your best friend with you! I had many people surrounding me in my various surgeries mainly by thoughts, but not physically. Well, seems I am someone who like to do ‘the work’ alone (which is not always good and also maybe an Illusion, because you are always supported …)
Anyway, support is necessary and always here, remember that! When you are anxious, try to get in contact with God and the Guardian Angels and ask for their help. They will do that for you, I know – I constantly experience that! When you get in contact, with medical staff, let your light shine through (you do that anyway I imagine), being thankful for their help, and the light will shine back on you and help you to feel reassured.
As for your pain because of your mother, I do understand – I have something similar with some family members whom I lacked to feel near me, but every time I had to understand that they asked other People to support me spiritually although they sometimes could not really express their own support for me! But afterwards I always felt their relief when everything went well – I think it may be related to their own great anxiety that they cannot express their support to you!
Manda, you are supported by your bestie and by all of us here, we are holding you in prayer and in our thoughts and ALL WILL BE WELL!!!!
Enormous hugs, Ursula
are you finally on your holiday? And on your way to Calabria?
I am curious to know which sacred place you are at …
Wishing you a wonderful time ! Enjoy!
un abbraccio, Ursula
Manda, as I am aware that your surgery is TODAY and maybe starting right now, I light a candle immediately! This is a good day, I just talked to a Lady who has three supporting friends all born on 10th of August!
Best to you!
Wonderful, PIlgrim! Thank you! Wishing you a blessed day,
Wishing you all the best, Palm, and looking forward to hearing from you again!
Love and blessings, Ursula
Thank you, Manda, for your always so grateful news and for your phantastic Pictures! (The other day you posted one from a walk which was great, too!)
I appreciate your being here!! Have a lovely day, Manda! <33 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Sounds fantastic, Diane! I’ m so happy for you having lived / living all these exciting events!
Thanks for your news, I have been thinking of you .. although I don’t check in regularly here at the moment, and writing even less!
But sometimes I say to myself, hey, you love reading from your friends, so give them some of your news, too!
Enjoy your slowing down, Diane, and your daughter being with you! I will enjoy my slowing down (well … ;-), too!
Aine, happy to read that ‘Grrrrr’ got you out of sadness!! I hope you are still ‘going’ 😊
Wishing you much courage and power! Here you go!!
