52 Weeks of Blogging with a Purpose: If I could have one superpower...

If I could have one super power it would be the power to heal. It would be amazing to be able to use my hands and words to heal people of their illness but also of their hurts emotionally and not just physically.

Having lost my mother to cancer so young, I often thought about how I wish someone could have touched her and taken away the cancer.  I wish that she would not have had to suffer and go though all that she did.  I know others that have been sick and needed healing and I wish I could have been the one to do it.

So many people walk around with pain that's not physical.  Pain from hurts that they have experienced along their path.  Sometimes it's right on the surface and you can see this pain like its a physical feature. It makes me sad when you see this pain in young kids that shouldn't have to carry it.  I just want to take away all their sadness...not by giving them material things but by being able to heal the pain that they have had to go through.  Tell them they didn't do anything wrong and they didn't deserve it.  I would like to be able to say what they need to hear to let the past go and to heal...and forgive. 

Not sure exactly how my super power would work but I think it would be a miracle to have the power to heal those I love and those that I come across.

What would your superpower be?


  1. Good question. I've found myself wishing for flu powder so I could just pop in and visit friends, but healing would be very good too...

  2. I can understand wanting the ability to heal. I used to work on a cancer ward. Not long after I left, my Father discovered he had cancer. Thanks to what I had learned during my time on the ward, I was able to help him with his treatments. In his case, a surgery and some chema was all he needed.... He is still with us today, but it forever changed. Thank you for sharing your experience and the superpower you would choose. I shared your link on my blog. :)

  3. my superpower would be taking words back.....Sometimes I speak to swiftly!
