We are Sisters and Brothers Who Dream of Healthy Days in the Sun

typewriterThere are moments when other people’s influence on your life becomes so clear. Moments when the pain, the struggle and the dark nights fade away as someone with a word or an action make a difference.

For my birthday some friends and also people I never have met sent me donations for The OMF End ME / CFS project, as they know about my disease and the hope this project is bringing us.

So here is a THANK YOU to those generous persons and to everyone who in any way try to light up the world for others. Thanks to all my poetry buyers, to family and friends nearby and to all the friends in the ME / CFS-community. We are sisters and brothers who dream of healthy days in the sun (like the morning when my son grabbed the sun for me). Thanks to OMF and the whole team of researchers that give us hope for a tomorrow out of bed. Some day that tomorrow will come.
