Weathering The Storms Of Life

Barco

 

Recently an unexpected storm blew into our lives and over the last few weeks we have been doing all we can to keep our heads above the water. As a family once divided we have now become reunited. It really is amazing to see how in the midst of a life threatening storm love washes over the wounds of the past and brings us to the present moment. This is the moment where everything else falls away and reveals to us what is most important. It is what we cling to as we hold each other tightly in love’s warm embrace.

As one storm passes others begin to roll in and reveal themselves from their once hidden depths. It’s as if we are dredging a lake, removing layer after layer of silt and debris. Finally the storm begins to break and the light begins to pierce through the clouds of confusion and uncertainty. It’s in these moments that we realize how blessed we truly are and what we have been missing out on by dividing ourselves from one another for so long.

There are times along the way where things don’t make sense at all. Even the endless parade of medical professionals are confused not knowing which way to go. What then is one to do? Question the questions, keep digging further, and refuse to sit idle with the ever expanding mental list of what ifs. We must remind ourselves to hold on tightly to the edge of our ship and take each day, hour, and moment one at a time.

This is a huge wake up call for all of us to live in the present moment. As we face both the shiny seas and the cloudy storms know that life is in constant motion and change will always come. In the times in life when we are riding high upon the waves surfing in the sun, we must live our shining moments to their fullest. For in the blink of an eye, a storm can roll in and rock our world at its deepest core. And during the stormy times it is important to remember that change will come, the moments will pass and we will soon be riding high upon the sunny surf once again.

Blessings,

Shirley
