We Adjust, We Adapt

I want to write about a lot.
Some people don't know what.
I have too much.

A daughter's high school graduation.
An international trip.
A daughter marrying, moving away.
Tired, stretched a little thin.
Adjust, adapt.

Another daughter off to college.
Reeling a little, but getting it all in.
Everyone back in school now.
Adjust, adapt.
Mom is sick.
Mom is really sick...
So much time in the hospital.
Trying to keep up.
Mom is back home...but time is limited.
(Isn't everyone's?)
To treat?
Why ruin the last days?

No one knows how long.
Months?  Years?
Too young to have lost both, but feeling old anyway.
Adjust, adapt.
The time was always going to come.
But it was always "later".
Not now.
Things will just never be the same.
Neither good, nor bad.
And we adjust, we adapt. 

We are molded.
We grow on.
It's His Plan.

For everything there is a time and a season, a time to be sad and a time to be happy.... Everything according to His time and plans for you. Sending hugs and blessings as you adapt and adjust,
love Gilly xx

Sometimes it's hard to go along with the plan when we think we know better. I'm hoping you're feeling better. Remember when we say- I can't manage, He says- I will direct your steps. Prayers that life comes together.
