Moving Forward

 "When you can’t control what is happening around you-
     Challenge yourself to control the way you respond.
                That is where your true power lies."

I never imagined that I would become a widow at such a young age, let alone while my daughter was still so young. Like many who have experienced similar trials, it was difficult for me to focus on moving forward. I wanted to change what was happening, to miraculously make a terminal illness not be terminal—but did not have the power to do so. What I did have the power to do, however, was to choose each day to continue living my life. To focus on what I could do to enjoy each day, both for myself and for my daughter. And what a difference that has made! We cannot always control what will happen, but we can choose how to respond when it does.
