“We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming. We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives.” – Gary Zukav
My brother travels eastward. It is a journey for his life. For many months he has endured … fought the good fight … found within himself the seed of life sufficient to enable him to face each day carrying hope while burdened with pain, immense discomfort, and a failing body. He now travels to a clinic in the Midwest hopefully ready to offer him a new liver, one born from another’s misfortune but destined for new gifting of life.
This journey was been shared. His loving and supportive wife has nurtured him through these terrible months, sought understanding of his infliction, and discovered opportunities to bring him relief. Her effort would have overwhelmed others but like my brother, she has found something special within her to keep her focused and moving down an unknown road.
Family and friends all now share a common bond … sending my brother and his wife rich blessings and best wishes that these final steps on his journey to a new tomorrow is successful. Yes, there is much that lays ahead but this approaching moment is a turning point … one supported by many and hopefully meant to be made successful by the universe. It all is now in the hands of greater forces. Immense love is now flowing eastward … closely following them. May it wash over them, help protect them, and contribute to the strength and wisdom of those about to change a life for the better.
Sending blessings, love, and support …
