Limitless Love

I have been blown away by the support I have received since my accident! I am surrounded by a lot of love!

A big thank you to all of my readers who put such lovely comments on my last post about my accident. A special thank you also to Kay who mentioned me in her post and as a result 5 of her followers posted comments on my blog. It was a lovely surprise when I woke up and read the encouraging words. I will endeavour to follow their blogs on a regular basis.

I have had several visits from fellow cyclists and the goodies have helped ease the pain of the surgery.

The last week has been really slow as I have hardly set foot out of the house. Lea took me for a drive but travelling is a bit uncomfortable.

Lea has been so loving towards me and has set up the house for easing my day to day coping while on crutches. I even have a spare bed in the lounge so I can watch T V lying down as sitting up is a little painful.

Phone calls and texts from loved ones has lifted my spirits!

The final word has to go to Lea who continually gives me so much love and since the accident has always been a step ahead of me to ensure that I get through the next few weeks less frustrated. I am not used to this sitting around and being so dependent on others. I am such a lucky guy to have someone who cares for me as much as Lea does.

Spent yesterday watching some cricket and in the evening Gilmore Girls which is a favourite of Lea's. Lea has all 7 series on video with each series having about 20 episodes. I really enjoy watching it with her as it has wonderful social comment and often I see myself in the characters.

Here is a song that I wrote called 'I'm here for you'. It is a love song written about 12 years ago and I believe is one of my best. Some of you would have heard it before if you followed my previous blog. This version is sung by John which was a lovely surprise at the time. I really like the way John sang it.

I have written many love songs and I dedicate this one to Lea who is my rock. Love is about being there for each other when in the good times and bad. As the chorus goes 'When you need a rescue rope 'cause you simply can not cope. I'll pull you in from danger give support and hope'.


  1. smiles...i love your song for your wife...and john did a great with it...ha...i love his guitar of pieces....

    and i am glad you have such encouragement around you as will need that in the days to come...still holding you in our thoughts and prayers and will do so until you are back up and getting around...

  2. I really like your song for Lea!
    I can imagine how difficult it is for you just sitting around, hopefully (if you do as you are told, lol) you will recover quickly and get back out into your running and cycling.
    Take care of yourself. :)

  3. What a great song Paul, and the singer, wow! What a voice. I could listen to him all day.
    Get well soon mate, I need to beat you in a race to Clymping beach and back. Do you remember Clymping beach? It's about 6 miles there and back. Just a short warm up for you.

  4. Glad you have this great support and others are saying, "I'm Here For YOU"!
    Great job that John did with your song, Paul! You guys just need a George & Ringo and you will be set for life!! Ha!
    (And I love John's guitar too.)

  5. Checking in from Kay's blog to let you know that you are in my prayers for speedy healing.

  6. Came over from Kay's blog. Wanted to let you know that I send thoughts of healing to you and wish you a fast recovery. I love cycling although I'm not a cyclist myself. I developed my love from watching my husband ride and watching the Tour de France. I hope you will be well enough soon to get back out there and ride.


  7. Good morning Paul. Glad to hear that you're in good spirits and enjoying the bundles of love coming your way. With Lea's help the weeks will fly by, believe me. Give her a hug, she deserves one. It was good to listen to your song again, John sings so well.

  8. Hi Paul! You have such a great attitude. That is really going to help you recover more quickly.

    :-) Marion
