I received this beautiful, beautiful story via email. It's a lovely heartwarming tale, especially at Christmas time.

This dog was born on Christmas Eve in 2002. He was born with only 2 legs. He of course could not walk and even his mother did not want him. His first owner also did not think that he could survive and he was thinking of 'putting him to sleep'. But then, his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met him and wanted to take care of him. She became determined to teach and train this little dog to walk by himself. She named him 'Faith'.

In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfboard to let him feel the movement. Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and reward for him for standing up and jumping around. Even the other dog at home encouraged him to walk. Amazingly, after only 6 months, like a miracle, Faith learned to balance on his hind legs and to jump to move forward. After further training in the snow, he could now walk like a human being.

Faith loves to walk around now. No matter where he goes, he attracts people to him. He is fast becoming famous on the international scene and has appeared on various newspapers and TV shows. There is now a book entitled 'With a Little Faith' being published about him. He was even considered to appear in one of Harry Potter movies.

His present owner Jude Stringfellew has given up her teaching post and plans to take him around the world to preach that even without a perfect body, one can have a perfect soul'.

In life there are always undesirable things, so in order to feel better you just need to look at life from another direction.

I hope this message will bring fresh new ways of thinking to everyone and that everyone will appreciate and be thankful for each beautiful day...

Faith is the continual demonstration of the strength and wonder of life.

A small request: All you are asked to do is keep this story circulating.

Mom's advice for sore throat

Gargle with salt water.

That thought came to me loud and clear on Saturday night as I was suffering from a really painful sore throat. No matter how much honey, lozenges, cough syrup I took, it still hurt like crazy. Even reiki didn't help much. I was wandering restlessly around the house when that memory came to me. Mom always used to say that whenever I had a sore throat as a child. So I obeyed. And it worked. My throat was much, much better yesterday. Thanks mom :)

Dad and I have decided to honour her by organising a memorial on her birthday, 21st January. Yay-Yay!

Message from Mom

I dreamt of mom again last night. This time, she was teaching how to look after a baby. Mom was young and vibrant, and when I woke up (at about 4am), I couldn't go back to sleep. It felt very peaceful just lying there in bed.

Two realisations dawned on me : I am to go for the Living Fully and Joyfully talk this weekend, and I know mom will be with me when I have a baby. Not so scary now.
