A reminder of how quickly life can change

I received an update recently from a young woman who runs an announcement only yahoo group site. This is the way she send out a monthly newsletter to an enormous mailing list. I had not heard from her for a while and then this turned up in my mailbox today.

I was so moved by what she wrote that I thought it would be important to include it here. Please follow her link to an amazing story.

Thanks, Anne. Wow! She's right, though. My husband, Hal, likens it to swishing your hand in a bucket of water, pulling it out, and noting that nothing has really changed in the bucket. Only a little water is gone, and very soon, all is placid again. So sobering, and reassuring. We are not responsible for everything in this world, thank goodness!

Thanks for this poignant reminder that we can't control everything in our lives, no matter how hard we try. It can all change in an instant; the important thing is how we deal with that change.
