Liverpool Care Pathway - Wonders Are Before Our Eyes

There truly are miracles in life...
Life is that miracle.

Miracles abound. They are all about us. We see them every day about us and yet, with our stilted thinking, we never see them as such.

Is there time...?

There's always time.

First Life Café break of this brave new year that awaits us...
"We were never given any hope. We were always of the impression that he wouldn't recover from the tumour.

"No one thought he'd make it - he was so poorly not even the doctors thought he would pull through. But slowly but surely he got back to himself."
This is the Mail Online
A 14 year-old boy who was left paralysed after suffering from a brain tumour has baffled doctors by making an unexpected recovery and getting his black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
Daniel Kimmins underwent emergency surgery just days before his seventh birthday when he was diagnosed with a brain tumour.

After the operation he was left paralysed down the left hand side of his body - which doctors warned could be permanent.

We may not know, we cannot tell but only wonder. To stand in awe is humility itself and recognition that miracles abound.
