“Life and death are one thread, the same line viewed from different sides.” ~Lao Tzu
Two of my favorite photos, separated by the thread of autumn and winter.
My emotions, separated down to a last thread...is it grief? Doubt? Happiness? Fear? Every moment in time...different.
On Tuesday, at 9:30am, I go back under the knife. Life...death...separated by a thread.
And for the first time in my life, I’m petrified. I’m petrified that I won’t get off the table...that my life will cross over that thinly veiled thread...and into death. I’ve harbored that fear, I’ve tried to bridge that gap for days.
However, the thin thread between night dreams and day fears tip to the dark...and every night I cross the same bridge.
I don’t know if I’ll post again before Tuesday. As I wrestle my hopes and my fears, I don’t know if I will have the opportunity to explore.
Regardless; I’m thankful for everything I’ve seen, heard, felt and loved on this earth. I’m thankful for Maine and all the beauty she’s shown me. I’m thankful for the precious gift of motherhood, to love someone more than myself and I’m thankful for the joy, heartache and journey I’ve shared with @awcaseyme .
Fingers crossed folks and I’ll see ya Wednesday ️
Different sides of the same thread
