Plateau – iv

Now, today, from this calm plateau, I look back to seven months ago. I survived. I’m out of death’s valley, death’s grip, upon this plateau of calm, acceptance, hope. Strength has been given me, and now a calm acceptance of life as it is.

I pray this writing, this release, will give that time it’s voice, so it may now rest.

Rest Donna, let your body and mind and spirit rest. Sleep, sleep, sleep... then sing, and laugh, and dance, and rejoice.

A new day awaits… a new call… new adventure… new love… new life…

My God, gratitude from the core of my being flows to you, who has held me close with strength and protection. Hope is now finding space with joy, evermore each day.

Thank you for life, God.

  1. Donna, although I’ve never commented, I’ve read all your posts from the beginning. Your writing is beautiful and articulate, and I regularly think about your journey and what you have to say. I think about how I can better live my life today, knowing that nothing is certain or guaranteed. You have been courageous and inspiring as you walk this new path. I’ve been praying for you and quietly cheering you on all these months, and will continue to do so. Hugs and encouragement to you always! ❤️

    1. Lisa, I do believe the sweetest people in the world, are named Lisa. This writing of mine is not easy reading, so I’m amazed that you’re following along. Thank you, truly. It has taken this experience to make me also reevaluate and love better. Thank you dear Lisa for this support…


  2. I’m going to try to do a better job of keeping up with your posts, Donna, but please know I’m still out here. Your words are always meaningful to me.
