Call for positive thoughts and prayers

This has been a rough week, not for me, but for some people that I love. My mom who is still recovering from surgery and a bout with lung cancer, fell yesterday, tripped on a curb and went unconscious. Luckily there was a doctor in the parking lot and she was rushed to the hospital.
She has a bad gash on her forehead, a black eye and a fractured pelvis. This fall may set her recovery back a bit and while she should be fine, I know she is in pain and not very happy right now, so some good thoughts and well wishes would make her feel a bit better.
Also an update on a relative, I don't want to say much because they may not have told others about it yet, but they had cancer and it was removed, but it has come back and likely won't be leaving this time, please send a prayer out for them.
All of this makes me anxious and sad, but I am trying to go to my calm, happy place and one way I do that is I rent funny movies and do fun things and I meditate. What do you do when you need a break from some of the world weary things that happen? Thanks for your good thoughts.
XOXO

Best wishes for your mom's recovered health. Maybe she would like some funny movies in the hospital!

Dawn said...

Oh, wow, your poor mom!
I usually listen to music when I need to brighten my mood.

Had something similar happen to my mom, except she really did not hurt anything, but end 31 month in the hospital. It was I think tougher for her in the hospital, I hope your mom gets out sooner.
Cancer is every ones nightmare, but there is hope and I'll send out anything positive to you I can, prayers, thoughts energy, etc...

Mary Ellen-Thank you and yes, I think it might help :-).
Whitemist-Wow 31 months! Actually,
I think she will get out in a day or so. Thank you for your prayers and welcome to my blog :-).

Funny movies are good! I read a story about a woman who was diagnosed with terminal cancer. The doctors told her there was nothing more they could do for her. She went home and watched funny movies day after day with her family and friends and just laughed. When she was rechecked, her tumor was gone! Apparently, Her tumor didn't like laughter. Hugs and kisses to you both, along with the positive thoughts and prayers. : )

Annie,

So sorry to hear about what's going on with your mom and your other relative. I know this has to be tough for you. My mom had lung cancer too. I'm sending lots of good, positive thoughts your way.

I think it's helpful to do something to distract yourself, even if it's just for a moment. I like the suggestions about funny movies and listening to music. Find something that feels good to you and do it. Remember to take care and nurture yourself because you will have so much more to give to the people who need you so much at this time.

Dear Annie,

Your instincts are so good about distracting yourself with feel good things. You are a powerful influence in your alignment.

Sometimes I think things happen and it doesn't look good to us from the outside, but the person was doing something that was right for them. Perhaps your mother could use that extra time in the hospital or these new nurses and doctors are giving her some care she needs, or they will suggest something that will end up making her more comfortable with her other treatment.

And one other thing I do is call Unity prayer line. This is pure positive prayer that is in alignment with Abraham and deliberate creating. Please let your mother know if you think she would be interested. 1-800-669-7729.

Warm, loving, joyful Well-Being is flowing to you, your mother, and your other family member.

Blessings, Annie.

Annie said...

Suzanne-I toally agree! Thank you for your prayers and for the # for the Unity line. xoxo

hello annie, sometimes i think it's best to sit in the feelings and let them be. you have reason to be sad. you are a person who can and does feel deeply, so you are just being your good self when you feel concern and worry.

it's also good to laugh, and it seems you are doing that too. blessings to you and your mom. i hope she recovers well.

love
kj

Ann said...

I hope and pray your Mom recovers easily. You know what? they say watching funny stuff on the tv aids recovery...

Unseen Rajasthan said...

Hi Annie !! I Hope Now Your Mother And Relative Both Are Well ??

mermaid said...

May they be well.

I breathe! It sounds so simple, doesn't it? Yet, I forget easily. I take a walk in nature, practice loving kindness, read something inspirational, etc.

kikipotamus said...

I am sending healing light and energy out to your mom and you and your other relative. My heart goes out to you.

Melanie said...

Hugs hugs Annie. I do so hope your relatives feel more comfortable.

When I need to feel happy, I put on fast bouncy music and just dance. (I have 2 left feet so this isn't something I do in public.) If I need to let myself feel the sadness to process it, I play blues guitar on my acoustic which leaves me in a more accepting place. Other times just being out with the hounds seeing flowers and the beauty of nature helps or speaking to friends of general everyday stuff.
