We all have lessons to learn in life; mine is that I am not in control. Right now, I am still in the throes of healing from a surgery. For some reason, my body just doesn't want to heal. I've faced 2 infections, fluid accumulation and just over all pain.
Maybe you have been in a similar situation where you have no control over the outcome. It's scary, difficult and kind of thrilling. We learn the most when we are in these types of situations. May we all have the chance to face the unknown and learn from it.
