Spiritual Preparation

Part of Families

This is the home stretch. Take a deep breath. Now take another. There are many details to attend to, and many things that can potentially go wrong. This is the best time to stop and be thankful. Thankful for this fantastic group of people with whom you have worked for months. Thankful for the supportive community that has brought you this far. Thankful you know how to ask for help. It is not in the easy and quiet times that our strength of spirit is tested; it is in the frantic and busy times that we use all the resources we have. It is here we find our ground if we but take a moment and look for it. Take a breath. Take another. Doing one thing at a time is a tremendously difficult spiritual practice. Let this busy time be an opportunity to practice.
