After I finished reading a recent post by Kate Wolfe-Jenson ( MS ” journeyman” who writes about her continuum passage living with MS for decades) I immediately thought of my friend Harriett and her amazing journey with cancer.
So I decided to dedicate this post to you Harriett because Jenson’s observation spoke to me and hopefully will also speak to you… since we share our struggles together!
Kate Jenson makes her kind promise read: By everyone sharing their strengths… we are all better for it…. everyone becomes a receiver and giver simultaneously.
” Even on days when you feel weak and weary… take a moment to feel the strength thrumming within you. It comes not from your muscles and bones, but from your essential being… you don’t have to stretch for it. Just settle into the quiet and realize it is there. ”
” Let each wobbly time be an invitation to gather strength by taking care of yourself. When you are feeling strong enough , celebrate by sharing who you are, what you have, and the creations of your tender heart with the rest of us.”
“The uncertain parts are share worthy too… since understanding enriches everyone’s lives and encourages us all to be brave. Never exhaust yourself -leave room for everyone to find their own answers, chart their own courses, and practice their own beliefs.”
” We are all connected by the human spirit … in every passage of our lives.”
So until tomorrow… ” Strength thrums within you and in us too because, of course, we are not separate. We are iridescent slivers of the same light, complementary fibers of the same muscle. When we shine together, when we flex in concert, our world becomes brighter and stronger.”
I love you Harriett! 🙏🏻😍
