Inspiring message

To be honest, I am not someone who has ever been heavily into politics BUT I do know that yesterday Canada lost a great leader and a greater man! Canada will truly miss NDP leader Jack Layton. A man who while facing the last couple days of his life wrote an inspiring letter to Canadians.

So moved by his letter I wanted to share a section of it with you.....

"To other Canadians who are on journeys to defeat cancer and to live their lives, I say this: please don’t be discouraged that my own journey hasn’t gone as well as I had hoped. You must not lose your own hope. Treatments and therapies have never been better in the face of this disease. You have every reason to be optimistic, determined, and focused on the future. My only other advice is to cherish every moment with those you love at every stage of your journey, as I have done this summer. "

I will leave you with the closing of his letter.... I hope that each of us can take something from his letter and maybe just maybe together we can change the world!

"My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world."

If you have never squeezed your lemons it's time to start!
