I have always been the type of person who rarely accepted my own personal weaknesses. My favorite Mother’s Day card was a depiction of me as Super Woman. No matter what challenges have presented themselves to me, I have looked them in the eye and said to myself I will not be defeated. I have charted my own course toward overcoming troubles and heartaches
and with the help and support of my loving and supportive husband and my very loving and patient friends I have usually found land.
This week I found out that in the case of one particular problem that I landed on a phantom island instead of docking on safe and secure land. I can’t say that I have completely accepted the fact of my humanity that led me to believe in the reality of the phantom but I’m working on it. And this is where the celebration comes in – because I have accepted the reality of the situation even if it still puzzles me. And I am working on accepting that I may have to take my cape off once in a while. But, I’m still not giving up steering my own course.
And here is hoping you will always steer your own course,
