....and so it is with healing. Although not as glamorous as the displays of spring, healing is breathtaking, it is a gift and it is magical!
Tim and I both have experienced the breathtaking, the gift and the magic.
Sometimes magic takes time -- the very thing you don't want to give. Time is a precious gift and one that should be savored...except that in the face of healing, time feels too long. But as surely as the glories of spring follow the bitter cold of winter, healing follows damage.
...and so it is with Tim. The day he asked about "testing the waters" by driving again it was as if a new tree had flowered! It was the day that life was shaken awake again. In his sleepy slumber the world changed from winter to spring and spring is soooo welcome! In his awakening Tim has attended 4 sessions of General Conference and the Priesthood Session (all via satellite, of course!), he has driven and he rode to Louisville and back with me to pick up young Tim and Lisa. Tonight we will go to the University of Kentucky Art Museum to see the Excavating Egypt display that is there. And at the end of next week Tim is going to try to go back to work (part time) again! All of these things are firsts as Tim makes a come back that I think is more glorious than spring!
