Paris terror attack

Husband pays touching tribute to ‘love of his life’ in defiant message to attackers

The husband of a woman killed in the Paris attacks has written a touching message to the “love of my life” and promised to raise their 17-month-old son “happy and free ”.

Antoine Leiris, whose wife Helene Muyal-Leiris was among the 89 killed in the Bataclan concert hall attack on Friday evening, posted an emotional message on Facebook.

Mr Leiris, who first met his 35-year-old wife 12 years ago, told the attackers he would “not grant you the gift of my hatred.”

In a post – shared more than 60,000 times by Tuesday morning – Mr. Leiris said in French he would raise their son Melvil “happy and free” and that responding to “hatred with anger is falling victim to the same ignorance that has made you what you are.”

Something to think about …. “Innocence Lost …. Sad”!!

WAR CHILD

Little girl, trying to sleep in your bed
don’t listen to the sound of the bombs nearby
just close your eyes and try not to cry
and let your brother sing you a lullaby.
And don’t listen to the noise of the guns
as the bullets flash by your door, don’t cry
just think of the peace found in sleep
while your brother sings you a lullaby.
Little girl, as you sleep in your bed
when you dream, try not to dream of the day
when soldiers came with their guns
and took your father away.
And when you wake up to a new day
looking for the sun, through the dust and smoke
try to find some hope in that terrible place
as you and your brother strive to cope.
Little girl, war is the world of grown ups
and there is nothing you can do
even if you tell them of your fear and sorrow
no one will listen to you.
But when the war is over and done
and you no longer hear an exploding shell
maybe your young life will be a better place
more like Heaven and less like Hell.

MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER …. IF ONLY!

We all know the reality.

We all know what happened.

We all know how “life” took Lady Diana from us.

We  know this has been photo-shopped.

Doesn’t it look perfect?

We have all wished this tragedy away. Now, as William and Catherine have started their family, we can’t help but wonder ….

If only …..

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

To start the day …. “Wind Beneath My Wings”!!


Wind1

~~January 29, 2015~~ 

This has always been a very special song for me. It means so much.

It applies to anyone in my life who has been a direct influence into my becoming who I am today. 

Indispensable family members are lost because that is the way of life …. yet without them when could have never reached the heights and the potential that we have … we arrived into this world, we grew, we learned, we achieved …. all while they were in the shadows. 

I want to honor those in my life who guided me and helped be who I am today.

They were the wind beneath my wings!! 

Words could never express how thankful I am for all that you’ve done.

~~LYRICS~~

It must have been cold there in my shadow, 
to never have sunlight on your face. 
You were content to let me shine, that’s your way, 
you always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory, 
while you were the one with all the strength. 
A beautiful face without a name — for so long, 
a beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that you’re my hero, 
and everything I would like to be? 
I can fly higher than an eagle, 
’cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed, 
but I’ve got it all here in my heart. 
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it,
I would be nothing without you.

Did you ever know that you’re my hero, 
and everything I would like to be? 
I can fly higher than an eagle, 
’cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Fly, fly, fly away, 
you let me fly so high. 
Oh, fly, fly, 
so high against the sky, so high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you, thank God for you, 
the wind beneath my wings.
