Our Folded Hands

Each day a new Beginning

It isn’t for the moment you are struck that you need courage, but for the long uphill
climb back to sanity and faith and security.  —Anne Morrow Lindbergh—
Most of us are on a long uphill climb at this moment. It’s a climb we are making
together, and yet a climb we can’t do for each other. I can reach out my hand to you,
and you can grasp my hand in return. But my steps are my own, just as you, too, can
only take one-step at a time.
For brief periods we skip, even run, along the uphill path. The rocks and the occasional boulder momentarily trip

us up. We need patience and trust that the summit is still
achievable. We can help one another have patience. We can remind one another to trust.We look back at the periods that devastated us so long ago. And now we are here.
We have climbed this far. We are stronger, saner, and more secure. Each step makes
easier the next step–each step puts us on more solid ground.
I may run into some rocks or even a boulder today. I have stepped around them
in the past. I will do so again.
