Our Folded Hands

Women helping Women. Reaching out to the Sister who still suffers. Helping each other through the Good times and the Difficult times. To get to the SOBER way of life, One Day at a Time.

Promise of a new Day

Death, when it approaches, ought not take one by surprise. It should be a part of the full expectancy of life. —Muriel Spark—

The process of living includes many dimensions. We can joyfully anticipate high periods and we must expect pain. We won’t escape sorrow over the wrongs we’ve committed nor grief for the departure of a dear one. Anxiety over what many transpire is a given. But working to develop a balanced perception of all the events in our lives will ease our way. It’s our overreactions to the ups and downs that make all of our daily steps uncertain.
Fearing the unknown wastes our time. How much better to trust that life will offer us exactly what we need to develop as healthy human beings. No event will be more than we can handle. All events are necessities of life, and each event need simple acceptance.
If I understand that every situation carries a blessing, today will offer me comfort throughout.
