What would you say to the stranger who saved your husband's life? How would you even begin to say thank you? Not questions I ever thought I'd have to answer. Until last week. When I started seeing George almost ten years ago, he was still undergoing treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukaemia...

At the lunch, I noticed that the women there were glowing with vitality and the kind of strength that comes from an inner sense of wellbeing.

'I want, I want, I want!' We all have greed for one thing or another. Are you aware of your 'wants'? When you get what you want, do you find yourself wanting more? And when you get it all, are you satisfied? For how long?
