A way to survive the empty nest and a "cracked "relationship with a fun daily challenge of new experiences, reflections, sources, and some biblical guidance. I hope this blog which offers a fun journey to survive by trying something new, either vicariously or by doing, will result in a survival tool kit to replace the past familiar doing, giving, and/or incorporating the interest of your child or your long gone love interest, with some new self interest(s).
This weekend was a beautiful, crisp, sunny day, a day to
feel hopeful and as Little Golden Books exclaims, to “think big” for a cure for ovarian
cancer. There seems to always be a walk for a cause during this time of the year but
today this was an extra special walk because I was able to get together with some awesome
ladies to support a special women in our life who is fighting this disease.
Sometimes when a family member or friend is battling something (anything) those that love
them often feel helpless. No one likes to “just
do nothing,” and a walk for a cause is a healing tool for both the fighter as well
as the friend. I felt encouraged on this
picture perfect day as we walked for all those fighting ovarian cancer and as we showed our support and love for them all.
I will continue to walk for things and I think that taking partin a walk for a cause is something to keep in my survival tool box.If you missed this walk, you have a chance, as
I blogged in Day 23 ,to walk for Alzheimer’s on Oct 11th.
As Jesus and the disciples
were going to the official’s home, a women who had had a hemorrhage for twelve
years came up behind him. She touched the fringe of his robe, for she thought, “If
I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.”
Jesus turned around
and said to her, ”Daughter, be encouraged! Your faith has made you well.” And
the women was healed at that moment. (Matthew 9:19-22)
Sometimes we have physical healing sometime it's spiritual.
