Do not let your fire go out,
spark by irreplaceable spark,
in the hopeless swamps of the approximate,
Do not let the hero in your soul perish,
in lonely frustration for the life you deserved,
but have never been able to reach.
Check your road and the nature of your battle.
The world you desired can be won.
it is real,
it is possible,
it is yours.
This is Caroline on the beach of Sydney, Australia. She has been waiting for the perfect moment in which to take a bracelet photo. Its there on her wrist. And do you know what the occasion was that day? I am using an excerpt from her mother's email to me:
I came home from chemo yesterday to this. Nolan came into my bedroom saying "I let you sleep for awhile, but mom, I KNOW you will want to see this" He was right. It was a beautifully wrapped present and hand made card. And do you see the double meaning? For a flip-flop loving, beach worshipping, Palm tree adoring, girl- this present of light shone brightly at just the perfect moment. Thank you Steph!
I also heard the "cookie fairy" stopped by and the only evidence I have of that is an empty plate! Obviously, Angie, the cookies were awesome! These were in addition to brownies from my Aunt Carol, and monster cookies from Heidi last week. You all know how to love on us!
The cards and texts and emails just keep coming and hope keeps attaching to them. Hope, along with gratitude is building a bridge for me... to the possible. All is grace, and all is possible.
