Embracing the Journey, Part 3: Here we go, again.

“It’s always the perspective in which we frame our language, that inspires us to keep going as we navigate the mysterious terrain of what it means to be human.” #WFTR ~Ryan D. Luelf

Embracing the Journey: Part 2, Root Causes to Disease

Embrace the journey . . . keep cycling thru. We have embraced the journey of uncovering one stone at a time. While at times we have collapsed timeframes, moved quickly and swiftly to make changes, uncover issues and changed paths when we needed to . . . we also know we are human and we just cannot make a perfect decision every single time. It is impossible for me, for Ryan, and honestly, for YOU.

Reality is ever redefining. It can literally change from one second to the next. . .

30 Days

Finally, I simply want to say THANK YOU. Thank you to all 90 GoFundMe contributors, 22 more who have helped in another financial fashion & misc others I’ve probably forgot to keep track up in all the craziness. We are just so grateful beyond words for the generosity, kindness & love we have received & continue to receive 24/7.

No, we are beating it together with each & every one of you & for that we are eternally grateful!

Hope

The eye has passed. The whiplash from the opposite winds thrust you as if you are mere weightless paper. The sting, the punch, the gasp of air you want to take in but can’t. And yet, hope finds its way in.

The Eye of the Storm

I stood looking at the storm swirling around me knowing that there’s a peace that passes all understanding. I am in the eye of the storm where blustery winds surround me, yet my heart feels calm.

The Sun Rising in the Horizon

Ryan’s biopsy. . . It was a whisper that helped my heart today. It was the sun rising from the horizon.
