Holding on

Posted in Thoughts and Reflections at 8:23 pm by

Ah. Rough week, full of medical shenanigans and “Really? This is my life?” moments, but at least I haven’t completely lost it. I did shrine rite tonight, and with Bast’s blessing got my ritual for tomorrow’s chat sketched out, so I have not yet flaked on one of these chats. I have not fallen completely into the void of apathy and nonresponsiveness. I have not had to go on leave from the priesthood again. I have not given up.

Each of these times is a tiny victory. And I thank Bast for Her patience and Her love, and my temple family for their prayers of support, all of which help me to stand up again, to keep walking, to keep working, to keep serving.

I raise my hands in praise to the light of the Lady of Joy.

I’m still here, Mama.

    Thinking of you, and hoping the days since you wrote this have been better.

    Also, I love that picture of Amber. ^_^

    Hrm, not sure why it listed me as anonymous, but the above was from me! :)
