Ulm Cathedral 2 – sorry for the sideways photos, as usual.
I try to post one of my photos now- an angel that says:
Do not fear!
Dear gratefulness community,
I have already tried to post something (including photos) before but haven’t been successful.
I know that you are waiting for my news. Have had my treatment today and everything has gone well. Thank you so much for your support! I hope that my healing is already in progress and going to continue till I am fully recovered!
Of course I have prayed in the Cathedral of the beautiful city of Ulm for all of us, especially for all in the Gratef...
Of course I have prayed in the Cathedral of the beautiful city of Ulm for all of us, especially for all in the Gratefulness Community and in particular of course for those who are needing it urgently at the moment! May you find healing and peace of mind!!
Please forgive me that I am not able to post any photos at the moment. I am glad that my husband has lent me his computer so that it is easier for me to type, and hopefully my message will get through!
Furthermore I would like to send some individual posts or answers to some of you, but please be patient. I can’t do that at the moment, will try later when I am back home and have my own computer and some time for myself!
Abundant blessings to all of you! You are all in my thoughts! Ursula
and special thanks to all of you who have sent me so lovely messages!!!!!!
I have been so busy since I came home, but I want to tell you that I am sound and safe … and plan to stay like that 🙂
My boys are home because they are on holiday since I came back, and I am already preparing my next travel – with my family this time! You imagine that I have lots of laundry to wash again so that everything is prepared for our travel and the boys being b...
My boys are home because they are on holiday since I came back, and I am already preparing my next travel – with my family this time! You imagine that I have lots of laundry to wash again so that everything is prepared for our travel and the boys being back to school when we’ll be back at the end of the week …
So sorry that I didn’t answer before! Coming home has been a bit of stress on Friday … I was so enjoying sitting in the sun and having a lunch after the appointment, but had to rush to the train station so that I could get my train … It would have been good for me to rest a bit! Now I am nervous again, but pray and visualize that all will go well for me with the treatment!
I am fortunate that tomorrow is Martha’s Day so that I can tell her all my hopes and ask for her support! I REALLY need it! Of course I do pray often these days, and as I light candles I always think of you here in this lovely and loving gratefulness community, friends near and far …
Thank you SOOOO MUCH for your support!
In two days, I will have to get up early once more because when I bought the reservation today, the train was already full so that we will have to start very early … and we don’t want to arrive too late, as it is getting dark after 5.00 p.m. since they changed the time yesterday.
Sorry that I couldn’t post photos yet, I will have to try to take photos of the famous Cathedral when I’m back in Ulm!
Diane, I am so happy to read that you feel better again!
Anna, thank you for your thoughts. It has got quite cold here and we had a storm yesterday, and today when I went to the train station with the kids it suddenly started to snow (?) – well it was kind of snow!
Manda, Palm, Aine, Dakki, Sylvie, Pilgrim, Patjos … thank you so much for your lovely posts and thinking of me! And for posting encouraging experiences and words which are of comfort in difficult moments!
Hope I haven’t forgotten anyone! I am with you in my thoughts and suppose the same is true for all of you traveling with me to Ulm in your thoughts (I know you girls and guys 😉 – I will try to let you know how I am feeling after the treatment, I hope it will work well, for me and for the internet connection!
HUGS to you!! “See” you soon!
I have arrived in Germany and thanks to technology (and free Wifi here which works perfectly) I can even leave a message for you here!
Thank you for all the blessings, prayers and good wishes!

Thank you for all the blessings, prayers and good wishes! I am feeling them because I have had a perfect day, despite getting up early and my younger son feeling ill this morning … I tried to get him some ‘medicine’ (gave him herbal tea that I had fortunately prepared, and looked for homeopathic pills in my home pharmacy), and I was lucky to get all the trains I needed – just at the right moment!
In one of the trains I had a very nice man sotting beside me, a musician (opera singer) from Latin America (which matched perfectly with my Spanish knowledge), and we had a nice conversation. He even asked me if I could give him some German classes or maybe also translate his master thesis, because although I find his German very good, he has difficulty to write the thesis in a foreign language. Anyway, it was nice and the time went by quickly!
In the next train I felt a bit tired and listened to one of my meditations, and it was perfect because having crossed the border, in Germany the sun came out and shone on my face! And the beautiful tree colours were a blessing for my eyes!
I also saw some clouds (what was the name for cloud lovers, Manda?) which let me think of an angel with huge wings … which comforted me because lately I often heard a bad inner voice telling me that ‘it’ wouldn’t work … Maybe it’s my old fears and lack of self-love!!
When I arrived in Ulm, I walked very much, I made all the way by foot. By the way, the hotel is near the Danube river and, best of all, just a few steps from the doctor! This is a coincidence because when I booked the hotel (which I knew because I’ve been here before), I didn’t know. But I go there tomorrow, I have just looked where it was.
Of course I visited also the most beautiful Cathedral, which is known for its very high tower, to make a prayer (for all my friends here as well!). And the light inside, falling through the stained glass windows, was fantastic!
So you see, although I have been nervous lately, I feel fantastic tonight!
The man was of course sitting beside me, not sotting!
PS: Glad to see you again, Aine! I haven’t been here regularly either but have been thinking of you!
the Cathedral is really amazing! I already have some favourite places in it, among them the candlelighting space where you can find an angel in a mosaic … see above!
Thank you so much for your prayers, cara Anna!
Blessings to you!
Thank you so much, dear Aine!
Hugs to you!
Dear Always Learning,
I wish you the best possible outcome and healing for yourvtransplant! Being in Germany for a treatment right now and praying for the Gratefulness Community in the Ulm Cathedral as I said in the Gratitude Lounge, I am including you in my prayers!
I want to welcome you, too, and I share Diane’s words entirely! It is a really amazing, wonderful and supporting community here and many of us can relate how others words can be si helpful in difficult times, but we also share joys and wonderful experiences and learn so much from each other!
I hope you will continue to visit, as Diane says! Blessings on your gratefulness journey!
may your soul find peace as you honour the loss of your twins.
Buona sera, cara Anna! As you read, I am now in the City of Ulm, Einstein’s birth place and the town with the highest Campanile in the world as I read just now. Have you ever visited it?
Thank you so much for your thoughts and comforting words, dear Anna! I am glad you can understand my worries with my sons, as you share some of the experiences with boys … And as Diane says, we mums often think we have to be perfect! Well… my sons teach me that perfection is is superf...
Thank you so much for your thoughts and comforting words, dear Anna! I am glad you can understand my worries with my sons, as you share some of the experiences with boys … And as Diane says, we mums often think we have to be perfect! Well… my sons teach me that perfection is is superfluous, they just came home with bad marks in German and English (their mother tongue, and a foreign language when their mum is a Language person’ 😉)!!
You are right, I am VERY lucky to have the advantage to be able to benefit from medical progress with this special method, and to live in a part of the world where we have medical treatment available (and my parents who support me financially)! This is a great gift for which I am incredibly grateful!
Plus I have the luxury to have a little holiday which is good for me, too! Thank you, Anna, for your support!
I am glad that your referendum went well … and as I read, it was successful!
Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers, dear Kevin! Your support means so much to me!
Thank you so much for your comforting words, dear Lunamagicae!
And so nice you say Ursala instead of Ursula, because children often pronounce my name this way, and an aunt of mine still does, she never changed it!
Thank you so much for your loving words, dear Diane! I am so deeply touched by what you say to me … It is difficult to express what I feel when reading it!
Diane, I bow before you when I read what you are feeling right now, physical and emotional pain, and at the same time you are expressing deep gratitude … This is almost incredible for me, that you are able to welcome all the hardship in your ‘guest house’ (Rumi) although you are suffering! May you feel ease...
Diane, I bow before you when I read what you are feeling right now, physical and emotional pain, and at the same time you are expressing deep gratitude … This is almost incredible for me, that you are able to welcome all the hardship in your ‘guest house’ (Rumi) although you are suffering! May you feel ease of your pain dear friend!!! I am praying for you! I will light a virtual candle for you right now, visualizing the wonderful Cathedral of Ulm, and the sacred place where candles are burning …
Maybe I can take a picture next time when I go there and post it here! I hope the light will be good so I can do this!
Vielen, vielen Dank, liebe Sylvie! Es freut mich, dass du hier geschrieben hast – hab an dich gedacht, als ich das Video hier hereingestellt hab. Und dein Englisch ist doch perfekt, du kannst ruhig öfter schreiben! 😉
Alles Liebe, Ursula
