Currie's Gratitude 10 October 2014

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

[J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring]

I love the whole of this quote. There are parts that stand out, yet they are often missed BEcause we think too much. I am grateful for NOT thinking too much. And I am quite Enough. I agreed to two more chemo adventures. Just saying that makes me feel a little wobbly. I was so happily letting the myriad side effects take me through 4… then when my doctor, who really listens to me, and respects me, opened a door, I would NOT start to stop listening.

It is amazing what someone just listening, or read-hearing you can still. That’s all today.

I love you, Currie
