December 24 Prompt – Everything’s OK. What was the best moment that could serve as proof that everything is going to be all right? And how will you incorporate that discovery into the year ahead? (Author: Kate Inglis)
The first time I genuinely and honestly believed (not just suspected) things would be OK after Jack died was when I was sitting listening to Coldplay’s Parachutes and Life is for Living came on. I felt his presence, and it seemed as though he were talking to me. I realized that, yes, life IS for living, and that’s exactly what he wanted me to do: live my life.
To incorporate this into the new year, I’ll be living my life the best I can. There is a lot of fear I have to work through, but I’m confident I’ll be able to that, one step at a time. As I was reminded soon after Jack died, it isn’t that everything WILL be okay; it already is.
