Wonderful Moments aka Miracles!

Today is one of those wonderful moments when the weather, the world, and the apartment are all going haywire, but that is OK!!  My son and daughter-in-law are  coming to Nice!!  He and Jean will only be here for a few days, but that is OK.  I can’t do what I used to be able to do, but that is OK.  My apartment is not as clean as it should/could be, but that is OK.  I look like a mess – my hair needs color, my nails need work, my weight needs work, but that is OK.  I feel like a mess, but that is OK.  I am concerned about the upcoming surgery in two weeks and my frustration with using a cane, but that is OK.  I don’t think they will like France, but that is OK. I will (try to) listen more and talk less (with my usual opinionated conversations), and I may fail, but that is OK.  No matter what happens, it will all be OK.  He is coming.  It has been a difficult time for me.  It has been a difficult life for him.  It has been difficult for Jean.  I’ll admit it.  But, we are all OK.  He is alive, and Jean is alive, and Tyler and Jamie are both OK.  Somehow, we have all made it to this point in time.  And, we are going to have one wonderful weekend together in Nice, France (of all places)  I am very grateful and feel very blessed.  Just a word of encouragement to those of you who feel despair.  Hang in there.  

Say out loud what you want to happen.  Then, let go.  REALLY let go.  Nothing to lose.  Well……  maybe.  But, the French say, “C’est la vie!”  


Best, Jay
