December 8, 2016, Prescott-
The toughest month of the school year is almost half over. Many people, adults and children alike, are eager for the Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa festivities. Others are dreading the loneliness and tension that the same season brings.
I find it a delight, while keeping my heart open to the suffering. We got the ball rolling on help for a hurting soul, this afternoon. Another feels life is crushing- and for her, the only answer is “One step at a time.” Neither is really alone, and both have a shot at getting through it.
Nothing is guaranteed, though, and things can and do fall apart, for reasons far from understood by yours truly. I only know that taking the bitter with the sweet has been my saving grace, for many years now. My son is finding that out, once again. His healing has progressed another notch, and he is free to wear regular shoes again. I hope gell pads are part of his foot gear, but he will make that choice and heal completely, regardless.
My own situation is such that, by taking each day as it comes, and learning from each thing that comes my way, I will first survive and then thrive. Healing has taken five years, mistakes were made along the way, and people were hurt. I am confident that some amends were made, and that, with my angel’s watchfulness, life will continue to be fruitful and full of growth opportunities for my soul.
As we continue to move towards our holidays, I wish all to find some solace and know that the light of love is shining, however distant it may seem.
