My husbands sudden passing was my first storm .....and the storm lasted for five years as we lost many more people dear to us . The stresses and heartache of carrying on without him and raising three kids on a single income were huge. But so was the Soul growth. I am not the same person I was and can actually say I now live life and each moment more fully. His death taught me a reverence for life and the sacredness of it. I no longer take anything for granted and realize how precious it is, Along with my friends and family.
Finally, this year I was ready to fully live and embrace life again. This was an art journal page I did in January.
To me this page was a reflection of how I had gotten through the loss of my sweetheart and many other huge struggles. I was beginning to put the storm behibd me. But I didn't see the new storm on the horizon. One month after this I was suddenly diagnosed with leukemia . Really ?? Have I not gone through enough ? Apparently not.
By this time tho , I think I have finally learned how to ride the storm from the centre of the cyclone. ..the calmest part. Deep inside of you; you will find peace. Going wirhin and connecting with the Divine calms your deepesr fears.
So there I shall resr as I go in to the hospital today for more chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant.
