As you already know Abi was in an accident. We were posting updates on this blog but decided to give Abi her own space. This will be much easier to manage and it will allow her to manage it on her own when she gets well. She will be able to have a record or diary of what has been going on and she will be able to add her own insights as time goes by. You can always comment here or leave an encouraging word on her new email or her new blog.
That email address is: Weloveyouabi@yahoo.com All emails will be printed and put in a binder for her to read. We know that Abi will need all of the encouragement she can get in the days ahead. So leave some comment love here or on her new blog and then email her when you think about it!
Wonder is the cause of delight, because it carries the hope of discovery. -Thomas Aquinas 1225-1274
With a few flowers in my garden, half a dozen pictures and some books, I live without envy. -Lope de Vega
Dragonflies are symbols of significant meaning in many cultures. On the ancient Nile they were used to represent life. In some Native American tribes they represent swiftness and activity, and for the Navajo they symbolize pure water. It is said in some Native American beliefs that dragonflies are a symbol of renewal after a time of great hardship. In Japan dragonflies are symbols of courage, strength, and happiness, and they often appear in art and literature, especially haiku. In ancient mythology, Japan was known as Akitsushima, which means "Land of the Dragonflies". In Vietnam the dragonfly is used as a barometer for the weather. In other cultures the dragonfly represents a wild and free spirit.
