Sometimes “life is what is” as my sister in law often remarks to me. She should know as she and her husband both carry a diagnosis of Stage 4 cancer. Here’s what I know: sometimes we can just do what we can to cope and hopefully – and thankfully often – the rest of the world will just have to be patient.
Being a counselor who supports many on similar journeys, there is one more truth I cling to – it won’t always be this way. Tomorrow is just around the corner and reminding ourselves often of this truth can give us hope.
