Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!
While the world goes about busying themselves with the holidays, I decided to take it easy this holiday season and sit quietly as much as possible. After watching a sunset almost every evening during my 10-day trip to FL, I learned to sit still and appreciate every moment of the process. Of course it was much easier to do when it was beautiful and warm. lol! But, in sitting through it all day after day, I realized every moment in life is beautiful in some way, just in a different light. Now that I am back home in the snow country, I learn to sit with snow and ice. They have a quiet charm of their own.
I so wish my cancer would just vanish overnight, but the truth is I was probably sick for a long long time before any symptoms shown, so maybe the reverse is also truth, I will feel well for a long long time before my scan results will clear. All I need to do is sit still and allow the universe flow through me like watching a sunset or snow.
Warren Buffet says it best about patience, it takes 9 months to make a baby. You can’t get 9 women pregnant at the same time and have a baby in a month! (For the record, every guy I told the joke to said they want to test the theory just to be sure!! Hahaha!) In my “old age”, I finally have the patience to allow things happen when they are meant to happen. I am no longer the student that wants a perfect report card rather than appreciating the lessons of life. Cancer, the perfect teacher, has taught me that much at least. So, on this holiday season, I offer a little patience to the world. My patience is the world’s patience. My stillness is the world’s stillness.
