This ends Pink for the Cause Thursday ispired by Christina of Soul Aperture. I do not finish with something pink but with a beautiful photograph from Texas Children's Hospital Staff photographer Allen Kramer. This photo touched my heart in ways that I cannot articulate. Let's keep united in the fight to find a cure.

If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up, or fight like hell. ~Lance Armstrong

We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself the means of inspiration and survival. ~Winston Churchill

The only courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one moment to the next. ~Mignon McLaughlin

To fear is one thing. To let fear grab you by the tail and swing you around is another. ~Katherine Paterson

When you treat a disease, first treat the mind. ~Chen Jen

Feed your faith and your fears will starve to death. ~Author Unknown

I love that Chen Jen quote and I apply whenever I can. And the picture is so lovely. Yes, my birthday is coming up soon, 16th November, just like my Scorpionic Havana and it is another year we can't spend it together. Oh, well, at least I was there back in Feb :-)

Greetings from London.
