You know when life keeps coming at you like an AKA-47? Well, that’s what it’s been like here. I’ve missed writing for fun and, with my blogoversary coming up in a couple of days, I’m feeling the pressure to write something from my heart. Any of you who are going through trying moments, days, months or years, I feel you.
Glad there’s this reality that Emily Dickinson writes about, “Hope is the thing with feathers/That perches in the soul . . . .”
So, for anyone else waiting for news for a loved one (or yourself) and praying, wishing, and believing the best, know you’re not alone. We’re all out here in cyber space together, holding virtual hands.
Life can be a series of “whys” with only a “because” for an answer. We do our best to live in the now and appreciate everything and everyone good in our lives.
I’ll leave you with a quote that has spoken to me and I’ll be seeing you all soon.
The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places.
But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now
mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.”
~J. R. R. Tolkien
