It is hard to put words to any post these days, which is why I haven't been posting I suppose.
One day takes the next, and while the situation is essentially a tough one,
we are all managing, I feel, with strength and courage.
My parents are truly handling this circumstance in an inspiring way.
It reminds me of the strength of the human spirit.
If we think to far into the future, imagining where this road will take us,
we can easily become overwhelmed with grief and thoughts
of how we might not be able to make it through.
Yet when we manage to stay present and deal with each moment as it presents itself,
it somehow transforms us and the moment, into something that we can digest and deal with.
My dad, his body fading away before our very eyes, yet the spirit in his eyes shining clearer than ever.
My mom, tapping into an inner strength, I think she had forgotten was there.
I am filled with love and admiration for these two people, for the human spirit,
and for this thing we call life.
