Special Friends…

This morning my best friend Renate send me this beautiful video. I had to share it with all my online friends and family.

Renate, Thank you for always being there for me. Thank you for your love and support. Thank you for being my Quiet Angel.” ~Coreen

Renate, my Quiet Angel.

Renate has Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS)* and due to Covid 19 and Lockdown we haven’t seen each other in 17 months. I miss her terribly and although we are in contact daily it is not the same than being together laughing and talking.

Renate is always there for me, in my dark days as well as my happy days. She supports me and always encourages me. I love her very much. She is always positive and grateful no matter in how much pain she is. She reminds me daily to be grateful and positive. She is my inspiration to always strife to be a better person.

I wish that we can visit over a cup of coffee. Renate in number 1,2,3 and 4 on my list to visit as soon as I receive my vaccination against Covid.

But here in South Africa the Senior Citizens and all the health workers has not even been vaccinated. So I will have to be very patient.

Thank you with all my heart for stopping by. Thank you for your continued support. I am truly grateful for every view, like, follow and comment.

Have a Blessed day.

Stay safe and grateful.

Coreen

*”The Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) are a group of hereditary disorders of connective tissue that are varied in the ways they affect the body and in their genetic causes. The underlying concern is the abnormal structure or function of collagen and certain allied connective tissue proteins.  

They are generally characterized by joint hypermobility (joints that move further than normal range), joint instability (subluxation (partial separation of the articulating surfaces of a joint)) and dislocations (full separation of the surfaces of a joint), scoliosis, and other joint deformities, skin hyperextensibility (skin that can be stretched further than normal) and abnormal scarring, and other structural weakness such as hernias and organ prolapse through the pelvic floor. In the rarer types of EDS, there is also weakness of specific tissues that can lead, for example, to major gum and dental disease, eye disease, cardiac valve and aortic root disorders, and life-threatening abdominal organ, uterine, or blood vessel rupture.”
