Stablizing Forces


The weekend gave me glimpses of a stabilizing force recharging and normalizing my life.
I turned 34.
I drove my car, a LONG distance.
Saw kitten faces, friendly faces, and brunched to bring in the new year for me.
I managed to cook.
I napped only once.
The couch went unused.
If you told me I had cancer, I would've scoffed and laughed.
I felt strong.
I felt centered.
I felt clear headed.
I lived a normal life.

Today, I browse job possibilites,
let some creative juices find their way to page,
watch a new generation take the lead,
revel in the sun streaming in, steaming the frost off grass and roof.

Today, I move forward.

Jenna,

To you and all at the birthday brunch....how wonderful to see those who helped you through the journey and celebrate your birthday and witness the step forward. May this new year be filled with constant steps forward, a new job and continued found strength and joy in life.
In Psalms it says: "For you created my inmost eing; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made." You knew my thoughts before I thought them."
Jenna what a creation you are a blessing to me, may He who knit you together continue to strengthen you and guide you on your new path, new found purpose in life.

Love to all and thank you.
Love from the Heart
Mom
