Seeking strength to….

“The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places.”

Ernest Hemingway


Have you ever sat in one of those hospital quiet rooms with windows that afford a view? Places you go to collect your wits, your focus, your (their) reality. Serious events are unfolding, life wobbles in the moment. Death looms. You look outward, upward and you pray toward what you daily ignore or take for granted. Now you pray and ask for life, mercy, easing of pain, strength for you to endure what is surely coming in the days….the hours ahead.

Afterwards, after the punch in the gut, the jolt to the heart, the reeling then numbness of loss, do you think to revisit that place in you that made you look up and ask something beyond the reality of the moment? No, probably back to the old self sufficient, positive thinking, self actualization mantras. Well be assured someday again you will be staring out that window, somewhere, and yet again asking for strength and courage beyond all the positive self promotions.  Forewarned is forearmed.
