blurry smile Mom Writes, June 9
A hearty laugh.  

Evidently, the idea of embracing life’s paradoxes spoke to a number of you. A related metaphor came up last night during a meeting of Erik’s and my support group. Trying to maintain my balance between the belief that I can get well and the medical/hospice expectation that I may be dead in six months is like riding two separate logs down a rapidly flowing river.

Knowing that you are joining me in this tricky balancing act is comforting for me now and reassuring for my family in the future.

During a recent Reiki session, I came up with an affirmation which removes fear from the balancing act. I am guided and guarded by divine light and divine love which is a beacon of joy.
