Fighting Parkinson’s, and sharing a compassionate smile, part 2

Last week, I posted Fighting Parkinson’s, and sharing a compassionate smile. In that post, I explained how one compassionate smile can grow into many compassionate smiles and a wonderful release of dopamine. Today, I will show you where one compassionate smile has lead.

At the end of last week’s post, I shared a big compassionate smile. In response to my post and smile, Karen in Ireland commented, “Hi Howard, big smile to you and all warriors. Tried to add a smiley photo with no success. Lol. 🙂 Big Love. Karen xx” Karen then sent me an email with a picture of her big compassionate smile.

As a result of her comment and her email, I then posted this comment:

“Hi Karen,

Something in the software does not allow for inserts in the comments section. Thank you for the lovely picture you sent to me. I tried to insert it into your comment, but the software did not allow it.

So, how about this Warriors, send an email to me with a picture of you if you wish, I will set up a page on the website where we can have the pictures of any of you who wish to have your picture on the page. Then, we can see who all of you are.

Love and blessings,

I have begun our picture gallery. I received a dozen pictures and added one of Sally and me.

Click here to see the picture gallery. Also, the picture gallery has been added to the “Page” choices in the menu at the top of any page on this site and in the menu choices on the mobile view of this site.

Recovery grows with each smile.

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

    Hi warriors, how lovely to put faces to names. I feel a connection to every soul in the Gallery. Especially lovely to see Pratima, our angel warrior.
    Big love to all. Hope the Gallery grows, I’ll be checking it each week.
    Karen xx

    Hi all, Jimmy I always thought you were much older! Lol It’s all the wise stuff you usually post. You’ve been quiet of late. 🙂 xx

    • jimmy says:

      hi dear Karen thank you very much for your sweet words…you are so nice…………you look great too with your beautiful smile…….. i have been quite lately, cause i am learning of the wisdom of all fellows…..but i promise to post again………….how have you been??

      • Karen in Ireland says:

        Hi Jimmy, I’m doing really well simply because I am spending a lot of time with Jesus. Addy last week posted a quote from a book called A Course in Miracles, which I have. It’s amazing how differently we receive words based on where we are at. As I’m reading it so much is jumping out at me, like I already have heard it before in the guidance of my heart. The book is everything Howard has been teaching us, operating from the heart and returning the mind to love rather than fear. I love it because it feels like Jesus is talking directly to me. Powerful as I feel a new sense of peace which is so unfamiliar to me in the last five years.
        It’s also so lovely seing all the faces of fellow warriors, so much strength and warmth in every face, makes all our connection stronger in knowing we are all in spirit together. 🙂 xx
        Now you get back to all the good stuff you used to share, but translate it before you post it! Lol. I LOVE google translate! 🙂 lol

        Wow you all look so amazing friends ,.!
        Wonder if anyone else noticed what I did that nobody looks like they have parkinsons disease. In fact it’s just a name someone invented a long time ago for a curable neurological set of symptoms and we are curing ourselves with the help of our good friend Howard.
        Jimmy I too thought you were older you look great and Karen you look lovely.
        Hope to be able to share soon too.
        Xxx 💞😊

    Johanna you look beautiful. Wayne Dyer was one of my favourite spiritual teachers. One of his teachings was ” if you change the way you look at things, the things before you change” I have used this teaching with great success. An example, a relation of mine I found very annoying, constant negativity, whinging etc. So every time I was with her, I totally CHOSE to focus on what I liked about her. I won’t lie, it was a challenge 🙂 BUT she changed before my eyes over time as I CHANGED my perception! What I’m trying to say is try and change your perception of people and how you feel they are judging you as a woman. Have fun with it, but the results are amazing. Hope this helps a little my friend.xx

    Dear dear friends. I have not written much, but now seeing your smile of strong beings and after many sufferings, a light has lit up in your eyes. God help us to get back to the sun from the darkness of the disease. With love, Leo
