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.

What is life

a challenge
