Daily Inspirations by Rita


Dear Readers, this book came into being by admiring, and being touched by a special friend’s poems and deciding I would try writing some of my own! I was traumatised at the time due to my mother Louise’s physical and mental deterioration. She became seriously ill with pneumonia and was staying in St Helier Hospital, Carshalton, Surrey, U.K. I had to fly over urgently from South Africa where I reside as she wasn’t expected to live. As a qualified Reiki practitioner plus trained Hospice counsellor I did the best I could to ease my Mother’s situation by giving her healing and comforting her. Prayers and God’s help saw an improvement and Louise was transferred to a special care home as she had advanced Senile Dementia and couldn’t walk any more. She was very frail and I was deeply saddened by her condition. I wrote poems to release my feelings and the emotional pain and strain I was under. After visiting her in this home for mentally confused people I felt very devastated that my Mother was no longer the person she used to be. She didn’t even realize she wasn’t at home which actually was a huge blessing! I had previously asked God to help my sister find the best care home for my Mother and I must say I was grateful to the carers there who really looked after her well I realized that as I wrote and helped to heal my wounds these poems could also give comfort and assistance to others in their recovery as we are all confronted with challenges in life. This is the aim of the book, to inspire, encourage, and uplift people through their journey. There are poems to be found within the book on every subject as it came up on my journey into discovery, healing, and enlightenment. Each poem tells a different story regarding my experiences in life and overcoming the obstacles. I have asked God to bless all those who read the book and it is my greatest wish that they draw comfort from the words contained therein as I know they will relate to many of the circumstances described in the poems themselves on some level. My Mother finally died peacefully in her sleep on the morning of 7th May, 2012. A poem written by me in her honour was kindly read out by my niece on my behalf at the funeral, which I couldn’t attend physically due to back problems, but did attend in spirit. I went into a meditation and was able to see certain members of my family present so I felt very blessed and at peace. Out of the ashes of the old may I rise like the phoenix to reach my full potential, encouraging others to do the same. I have more books in the pipeline which need to be published and read and really hope you enjoy this one. Many blessings. Rita
