Dreams that contradict reality

When somebody tells you they will physically do something medical professionals have stated is not possible, and you know full well why it is not possible...how would you react?

As a Christian who believes in miracles, I know it's possible....but as a professional, apart from a miracle, it is not likely...so what do you say?

This is something I am repeatedly having to deal with...
I refuse to crush people's dreams, no matter how far fetched they seem.
Without dreams, what is the point of living? Plus, as I said, I do believe in miracles.

It's like you see the rose bush and know it will grow roses...but the other person believes it will grow tulips... you can tell them rose bushes only grow roses, but they don't want to believe that. They want the tulips so much they won't accept any alternative. I don't want to see their face when the roses grow... I want to protect them from the disappointment of no tulips...but I don't think I can...

Old hobbies

After speaking with some friends who are similar ages, we've come to the realisation that when people said we had all the time in the world in our school days....they were right...
How many of you had hobbies in your pre-working life that you just don't seem to have time for now?
It seems so silly that it's obvious....that we're so busy trying to make a living, meet commitments and get through each day, that we've forgotten what it's like to be free to do what used to come naturally...

Examples are drawing...painting...playing an instrument...writing...sewing... craft... the simple joys of childhood...

Maybe it's time to think about making room in our lives for the old simple pleasures again...
It's easier said than done! ;)
