I survive this disease by capturing my thoughts in a journal. Most of the time it is just my ramblings, but every now and then I will try and capture what I am feeling in a more thoughtful way. Here is my latest and I felt like sharing it with you, my family.

The Storm


I set sail one day on calm blue seas

It did not matter where

The wind was soft with peaceful seas

The sunlight for my guide


But soon I looked and all around

Dark seas had sprung to life

Each monstrous wave would crash upon

My only hope for life

The little boat so calm before

Was battered, frayed, and torn


In hopelessness I hung my head

Ready to surrender to the storm

Then piercing dark, a light did shine

To bring me safely home


And through despair fresh courage came

To face the trials of life

And gently turned my little boat

As the light guided me home


He stood there on the sandy shore

Arms open to embrace

“Come here my child and gain some rest

before the next storm comes”
I love you all and hope you find peace amongst your storms.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.

Wow Randy, that's great! Very inspiring.
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.   Buddha
