Incredible views along the way.

I think we were still in a state of turmoil, for myself, i felt like i was still floating, kind of an unreal feeling, we were seeing so much, and every animal coming our way, felt like a gift, a gift to keep me focused, to be alert.       I talked a lot, actually texted a lot with my daughter Karen, who gave me hope through prayer, over and over again, i would feel like i was falling apart, could not go on, and she would guide me right back on track, i needed to reach Bert, to somehow help him let it all go, to let the accident go, we were so fortunate, neither one of us was hurt, Curtsy is built like a tank, such a strong boat, a modern boat would not have done so well…….    so, Karen sent me a story, by text, here it is…

A PROFESSOR IN UNIVERSITY WAS TEACHING HIS CLASS ,I BELIEVE PSYCHOLOGY, AND ONE MORNING GAVE THEM A TEST, EACH ONE RECEIVED A PAPER, A WHITE PAPER WITH A SMALL, BLACK DOT IN THE MIDDLE.       THEY ALL LOOKED AT IT FUNNY, HE TOLD THEM TO WRITE ABOUT WHAT THEY SAW.       SO, THEY ALL STARTED, IT TOOK THEM A WHILE AND THEN HANDED IN THE PAPER.         THE PROF LOOKED THEM OVER, SMILED , AND THEN TURNED TO THE CLASS.      ALL OF YOU HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT THE BLACK DOT, ITS SIZE, WHY IT WAS THERE, WHAT WAS ITS MEANING, AND ON AND ON…..      WELL, HE SAID, THIS PAPER IS ABOUT ALL THE WHITE, ALL THE WHITE YOU SEE, THAT IS YOUR LIFE, ALL THE GOODNESS, YOUR HEALTH, YOUR FAMILY, HOW TRULY RICH YOU ARE, THE BLACK DOT IS YOUR TROUBLES, AND LOOK HOW SMALL THEY ARE COMPARED TO YOUR GOOD LIFE.       THE WHOLE CLASS BROKE DOWN…..

So, Bert and i , after reading this, broke down too, we cried, and laughed, and hugged, and were and are oh so grateful!!!!!
