Isn’t it interesting how just as soon as we think we have life figured out for a while, we come to realize that when it comes right down to it, we have no control. All we can do is adapt and learn and grow as individuals. We have to live by faith. Faith in knowing that as long as we do our absolute best, with the purest intentions, everything will eventually be okay in the end…and sometimes not just okay, but better than we ever imagined.
My mom told me a story of how when she was a little girl, and she was being lazy, her mom told her to go sit by an anthill and observe how hard the little insects worked. She saw each ant working very hard – each fulfilling it’s purpose, and together the entire colony benefited. Today our little ant colony made progress. Hannah took it upon herself to get her siblings to finish packing their rooms up and then clean them too. Danny worked hard at putting things on Craigslist and eBay, and Jonathan and Hunter loaded and unloaded storage stuff. I’m not sure what I did, but I know I was busy!
My Mom and Dad had their first appointment at the Cancer Institute, and now have a few more questions answered. More to think about and plan for with Daddies pancreatic cancer.
I had a Cardio appointment and my doctor wants to reposition my pacemaker. My surgery will be on May 1st.
So much going on, so much to adapt to. So much to learn from. I am grateful for life’s trials and blessings, even though some are hard to swallow.
