Is it really a surprise?
I have looked at change as a constant for some time. What is always surprising to me is that it is really SO VERY CONSTANT!
I think I have gotten used to the new arrangement in the sand of my hourglass and there it goes again – upended with a new arrangement to get used to. It does not make me feel weary, but it does ask me how secure I am in my ability to discover the new arrangement – resting patiently with an open heart and a quiet mind.
I could think cancer is the ultimate narrow spot – but I know that is not true for me. Cancer has given me a rich vocabulary to tell the story and a determination to live life – but the emotional roller coaster of life in relationship is an ever-changing and daunting reality.
I am ever grateful for patience, persistence, gratitude, grace and enthusiasm. Sifting out one’s gifts is an important aspect of moving forward.
