Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.
Farrokh Vavoom [ real life name Mark Shilts] has been my husband, friend and life partner for many years. We married in the 1980's and have a wonderful son who is now 30. Mark has worked for many places like Lawrence Livermore Lab, Dolby Lab and did web design for Journey, the band, who we brought into Second Life for an experiment in 2007-2008. Then disaster struck in the form of a huge tumor located in the center of his brain. It left him unable to function and was in danger of killing him. He had an operation in October of 2009 that left him disabled. I am his Caregiver and Relay in Support of him and all others who are affected by disease and devoted to research that will prevent and cure any and all forms of cancer. Caregivers are an important part of Relaying and we appreciate all the help we get and give from being involved. Go Relay!
A short update: We are still trying to workout a settlement with our Mortgage company but they are dragging their heels and it is taking a toll on my sanity and spirits. I am trying to remain calm and carry on but between caregiving and keeping up a positive face for my dear husband, I am feeling like a hamster in a cage just spinning my wheel. Positive energy needed and prayer accepted. Love you all .. oh and a series of winning lotto numbers would help too ;)
