It Already Happened


It seems very fitting that I should happen upon this idea today--on John's Birthday. A day I value more each year because there is, in fact, another one. 

I was listening to a CD of the teacher/writer Geneen Roth in my car today and I heard her say this:

"I have spent 40 years of my life preparing for losses that have already happened."

Yes, I do that too, Always braced, anticipating, worrying, and preparing for a terrible loss. But the truth is, in my life, the big losses already happened. And even on this day I know that we are OK right now.
