Currie's Gratitude 12 June 2014

Grief was like a newborn, and the first three months were hard as hell, but by six months you'd recognized defeat, shifted your life around, and made room for it.   [Ann Brashares, Sisterhood Everlasting]

I’ve been noticing this truth in several ways lately. It’s one way I am seeing the cancer thing. It’s also how I am viewing my disappointment about Hope Village NOT happening as I had hoped when I moved here.

I am good at making room for Change. At least I think I am. But mayBE I am just adapting. Anyway…

Maybe if the empty space inside her was filled with love there'd be no room for sad and dark things.   [Glenda Millard, A Small Free Kiss in the Dark]

MayBE Ifs are slippery slopes for me. MayBE If this then that would BE true. Therein lies the trouble.

MayBE If is best used for adjusting myself. MayBE If I try finding the pony in the poop then all this cancer stuff will BE more “fun” for it. Crazy?! Okay, perhaps. But it’s working. Can’t fault what works, eh?!

You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.   [Dr. Seuss]

This is really just the way Life is. Good to know.

I love you, Currie

Adaptation is highly underrated. ;)

So often things we imagine ahead of time are not as we imagined when we get there. Doesn't mean they aren't as good. Just different. ;)
