Wonder is an emotional feeling of awe for me. This winter I saw such bad behavior in people I love, the recession steal our retirement away and the loss of a dear friend to ALS. The wonder is not disappointment, shock or extreme grief, but of wonder on what came from it all.
The people I love I have chosen to love and I will not change them. I simply put new boundaries in place that will keep drama at a minimum. I feel like my journey has given me a 6th sense to stay focused on the wonderful gift of being loved and here.
With the sudden passing of my dear friend Pam aka Batman, to my Robin, I was saddened and filled with wonder at the same time. She left this world on her terms and peacefully. I have let go of fears about death but it was a huge wake up call. I wondered why her and not me? Why I have lived 19yrs and can still walk when most live only 2-5yrs? My purpose became clear in my grief or Pam whispered in my ear, educate! I HATE fundraising and I'm frustrated with how many people don't even know what ALS is. I came up with "Educate it Forward." One person educates another about ALS and that person shares it forward. We have Croatia, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Philippines, London, Paris, Canada and the USA on board. Info is in my profile.
It's a wonder how much good can come from bad.
