Are you ready to go? It’s ok if you’re not. We can wait a few minutes. They’ll still be there even if we’re a little late. You know kiddo, I know it’s not the same but I was scared the first time I had to have surgery. Oh, it was my… my appendix. I’m sorry for the tears, honey. I don’t mean to make this harder for you. I would rather you weren’t sick or going through this. Aw, you don’t mind them. Really? I’m glad cause I’m not going anywhere and I’m sure there’s going to be more. That’s right. I’ll be right by your side for every single step of the way. Hey, don’t you start now. I know this isn’t a guarantee but you’ve chosen to go through with it. I’m sure it’ll be fine…  Hey! Did I ever tell you about my childhood? There was this old house around the corner from ours. Me and Barbra Jean used to play in the yard. I bet you can’t imagine Auntie Barbra being little can you? Well we used to… you see there was this tree in the yard and I didn’t like to climb it. But each and every time Barby Jean used to egg me on. Until one time I finally did it. And what do you think happened? Yeah, I did fall. How’d you get so smart kiddo? Well I broke my arm in two places. We had to go to the hospital to get it set. The whole time all I could think about was how awful it was going to be for the pain. You are absolutely right it did hurt, but not as much as falling out of that tree. And look it still works. So you’re ready then? Ok. Let’s go.

300. Are you ready? Prepared. And if you’re not… take a few minutes to gather yourself. It helps.  Know what has to be done, and be ready to follow it through. Life may be complicated at times and dish out some really unexpected information. There’s not much that can be done about the past once you have that information. Best thing is to determine what can be done and accept it. Find those things and embrace them. There doesn’t have to be a downside all the time. There is hope in dark places. Just have to find it. Light can exist in darkness. And darkness in light. Look for it. enjoy. kisses. m.
