...And I am freaking out! I don't feel like I am ready to "expose" myself. Will I ever be ready? Probably not. But, I can't deny that life has brought me down this path for a reason. I have, yet, to be shown where this, or I, will go... but this is a start.
Not 3 short hours ago I got the call that my best friend lost her brother last night to an overdose. It's devastating. Their lives are rocked to the core. And all of us on the periphery of their brokenness are feeling nothing but helpless. They will ask themselves if this could have been avoided. Could anything have been done to prevent this. The answers won't come.
I know this because my family and I have been through this too. Many of you have been touched by this devastation. Our children ask questions of what happened to Auntie or Cousin or... Still the answers are hard to come by.
I still don't have answers. But I do have a solution... for myself, and that is one of personal healing and transformation. I know, in my heart, that I can only continue to walk my walk and hope that others, like Adam or Kathy or someone else who is suffering might see that living life on life's terms isn't so bad... that they don't have to go it alone. Healing is possible. Yes it's a work in progress and not always easy, but it is possible.
Let's make a go of this thing called life and make it A Way Of Love.
