I share this entry because of the amazement I felt having served this particular passenger.

I picked up a gentleman late one fall evening who came out of a care facility. He appeared very tired. I quickly learned that this man had just finished another one of his near daily visits to his wife who had remained in a coma for over 10 years. Many years ago, this man woke up in the middle of the night to discover that his wife lay next to him unconscious. She never regained consciousness.

The stress of this man’s experience had taken its physical toll on him. Despite the stress clearly aging him during this endeavor, he projected happiness and contentment despite enduring what few could possibly imagine. His love for this other human being was simply a different level of intensity and devotion.

The commitment and dedication driven by unremitted love this man displayed moved and inspired me. This man’s dedication could have easily been a Nicholas Sparks novel.

It reminded me that in the darkest of times and places, there is immense love surrounding us, even if we are unaware of it.

CRISIS IS OPPORTUNITY

If you can keep a level head and learn to compartmentalize the worst situations → bite sized chunks / one step at a time before you move on to the next part of a daunting task. You’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish.

Just like the lobster, we only tend to grow & seek change when things get uncomfortable. Embrace life’s challenges & look for the beauty that comes with them. Life’s most difficult situations are the ones that tend to bring the most wisdom and blessings.
