For months we have been going full force into battle. Sephine especially. Now March is here, we are home a lot more now. Only in treatment on Mondays. Sephine and I are finding ourselves with a lot more free time.
She has low energy. Sleeps a lot. I have been finding myself with low energy as well, finally I amreally feeling everything that we have been experiencing this whole time. Part of the process, and I am tired.
I guess it's like hitting a plateau. Stuart Wilde said "Our life's journey....is a series of steep climbs and flat plateaus, then further climbs."
I'm convinced life wouldn't be as beautiful if we, if I, if she, did not have these climbs. Then we rest in plateaus. Finding peace in our emotions and truth in the raw element that makes the pain and the happiness feel so real. Then we climb some more.
I love to think of it as a climb because that means there are views. Views from where you came and views to anticipate what might be ahead. Never knowing fully what lies before us, we continue forward....upward.
Sephine has always been a hugger. I find that I am comforted immensely by her arms around me. I love climbing with her, I love resting with her. With so many people cheering her on, journeying through this together, we feel extremely blessed.
"Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb." -Sir Winston Churchill
