Last summer, I've mentioned this many times, was idyllic and practically perfect. Even with the frightening stuff that happened!!! Kelly met me in the barely lit passage and traveled with me down the tracks until our ways parted. RLS, Kurt (of this awesome background), and others bore with me and helped illuminate the scarier parts. A few of those helpers have moved on, but their wisdom remains as a glow around me.
New mentors and givers of light have come into my life and I can honestly say, I believe the tunnel is ending. Well, I can hope the tunnel is ending!! I know the brightness I see is not a train. I do not know how far away that opening is. It doesn't matter. Today, the sun is shining and I am aware the end exists.
For now, I will breathe and know tomorrow will happen and be thankful. I am sure, when night comes and I can't tell where the end is, I'll be frightened. Yet, I am absolutely sure, I am not alone in my darkness and there will always be a hand to grasp tightly.
