Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain!

I Am Here......




I've walked through a new land called Grief.......
I've been here for a while now.....
When I got here the darkness was totally consuming....
Scary, as if I'd never be able to breath again or get out of this place.
But I kept on walking and
a little light began to shine through, and some air.

I took some breaths and walked slowly, resting at some places.
Not a good rest, but a paralyzing rest.
I had to be rescued or I would have stayed there.
This was a new land and I didn't have a map.

But others did.

And they guided me. And supported me. And held my hand.

The road was bumpy but it lead me in the right direction.
Towards bright tomorrows. They were a long time coming.
I got here! I'm going to be alright.
Changed by the experience, but alright.

There is no end to this, no completion, just acceptance.


Peace

So glad you've come through to the other side of Grief. I'm sure that's why God gave us friends, to guide us when we couldn't see our way through.

Big Hugs ♥xo

Acceptance is a stepping off point O. Step off to the future secure in the love carried forward from the past.

Be Well
