In the words of Helena Wilkinson' Looking back I can hardly believe the words I wrote in "Puppet on a String" are about me! Yet in re-reading the book, making some alterations and finding more of my poems to add for this edition of "Puppet on a String". I felt the heartache, frustration and pain I experienced all those years ago. I can also see so clearly how God had His hand upon my life, directing me to certain people at certain times, all of whom played such important roles in my recovery. Not long ago I was taking a day seminar on understanding eating disorders and one of the organisers was someone who had faithfully prayed for me throughout my fight to beat anorexia. She had not seen me since those days! It seemed so strange to meet her as an adult and as someone on the same wavelength, when my memories were of me as a fearful and distant teenager and her as an older woman who was a part of what I thought was a 'fuddy-duddy' group who prayed for me! At the time I felt awkward and did not think their prayers would do anything. Here I was, standing before her as evidence that God heard and God healed. Now that I am in the position of praying for others, and probably praying quite similar prayers, I am so full of appreciation and admiration for her commitment to me.
