Life keeps on reminding me of my inner strength.
Three years ago I posted ‘Strong‘, using the same image and quote I am using here today. This image is another where you can see my editing skills have improved, while I am definitely no expert. Not even close. But I get by with the skills I have learned.
I wanted to share this image again, because of all playing in my life. Was it not for my inner strength, I sometimes wonder what state I would’ve been in now.

I also used the above quote in 2018, and just like in many other times in my life, it once more applies to my life at this moment. Those who have read here for a longer time knows about the ongoing psychological problems of my son, which is in no way better than they were, but worse. Add to that my own stress regarding this situation, then dealing with Master T being hospitalized the day after his birthday (no Covid). He came home after a few days, but will need time to get back to where he was, which means therapy.
Then, just when you thought we’ve had it all, I came down with… Covid! And as the cherry on top, I received a message from my brother contacted for the first time since my mom’s funeral. My father had a stroke, is in a coma, on a ventilator and heart monitor, and paralyzed on his right. I’ve been in contact with my father these past years, but since his wife couldn’t find my number, she asked my brother to contact me. The jury’s still out on how my father will get through this, if he does. He’s almost 80 years old.
My plate is full, as they say, and it’s in times like these when I am thankful, not only for my strong body, but also for my inner strength. I’m an optimist, always trying to see the positive side of things, even in the darkest times. I am also a believer of ‘the wheel is turning’. Things can’t always be bad… somewhere, something will change, and they will get better again.
