Well, as I am sure you are all glad to hear, life has begun to calm down.
As life has been crazy these past few days, I am beginning to fell the swirling wind around me calm down. Yes, there are lots of pieces of debris to pick up and deal with, but at least they aren’t flying towards me anymore. There are conversations I still need to have, and people I need to talk to, but I think I’m now in a state of mind where I can do that.
And now I stand and look at the ones who stood by me through it all, and thank them for always being there, and being a great group of friends, who are like family. I am thankful that they were there and understanding of my needs, even when they didn’t understand what was going on. I couldn’t have asked for a better friends.
But first I stand and look at the One who actually carried me through this. When I couldn’t stand,when I couldn’t even reach out and take His hand, He got down on the ground with me and there He held me until the storm passed. And once the storm passed, He picked me up, brushed me off, and now life begins again. We begin to pick up the pieces and put it all back together. It will take time, and there will be pieces I pick up that will probably make me cry as I look at once was and now is no more, but I think it’s healthy to grieve the things gone past, as long as you don’t dwell there and then look to the future.
So piece by piece, life begins again.
