Three years ago we were told Corey would heal but it would take time. One of the lessons I’ve learned throughout this journey is Time is Relative; it is what we make of it.
We must come to see that human progress never rolls in on
wheels of inevitability. It comes through the tireless efforts
and persistent work of men willing to be co-workers with God,
and without this hard work time itself becomes an ally of the
forces of social stagnation. ~ Martin Luther King
As the saying goes ‘time heals’ but truthfully its living, striving and persevering through our challenges that things are made better.
Time is not our opposition, it’s our workplace. Focus and effort is our second hand that propels us forward. Now is the only time we have. Our perspective and what we do with that gift determines our path and outcome. We must expect the best of ourselves and never relent to the ‘supposed’ boundaries of time.
Corey was very upset today as we traveled to Bryn Mawr. In a moment of clarity she shared, “I’m afraid I will not be all the way better and I am most afraid of how long it will take”.
I was very honest with her, “Inside I am scared of that too. But on the outside, I only let myself think of what you could be. I don’t know how long it will take. We never thought you would be doing what you can do today! Imagine if we both thought it would take too much time to get better and we gave up? Today is going to get us to the tomorrow we want”.
