Currie's Gratitude 15 May 2014

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. [Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version]

I have been dealing with a lot of “strangers” lately. I have had to put myself into the hands of many strangers, BEginning with the moment I stepped into the ER in March. Strangers have been passing me along, one to the next for 2 months Now.

Only recently have I realised that I, too, have been a stranger to each and all of them.

Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.   [Henry Wadsworth Longfellow]

This has BEcome very challenging. I feel I have nothing but angst and confusion seeping out of me. I don’t want to give that to anyone. I don’t even want it myself. Still, I keep showing up. And I keep answering questions. And I keep DOing what seems the next indicated action. I don’t know if it’s sorting itself out or making things all that much more tangled. A lot of my time is spent quietly alone. That helps me.

When will our consciences grow so tender that we will act to prevent human misery rather than avenge it?  [Eleanor Roosevelt]

I find this a most brilliant idea to consider.

I love you, Currie
