I wrote this during a difficult time.  My husband was in UCSF having surgery that would change our lives.  We both acted brave.  We both were scared.  As I read this today, the words still strike a cord with me.  Life isn't easier or harder now 

than it was those 23 years ago.  Life just is.


This is the season of reflection, merriment, worry, and joy.  It is a time of mixed emotions and experiences and expectations.  Like life.


Take time to acknowledge your feelings. Take time to balance expectations with reality.  Take time to find your joy in this very busy time.

Let me know how you face all Life presents to you.  By sharing we realize we are

not alone in our comfusion.  




Life is a challenge

     meet it

Life is a gift

     accept it

Life is adventure

     dare it

Life is sorrow

     overcome it

Life is tragedy

     face it

Life is duty

     perform it

Life is a game

     play it

Life is mystery

     unfold it

Life is a song

     sing it

Life is opportunity

     take it

Life is a journey

     complete it

Life is promise

     fulfill it

Life is beauty

     praise it

Life is struggle

     fight it

Life is a goal

     achieve it

Life is a puzzle

     solve it


What is life

     a challenge
