I found this quote as I was reading my blogs this morning waiting for the claims adjuster to call me back. I think it fits my situation perfectly.
“When a lot of things start going wrong all at once, it is to protect something big and lovely that is trying to get itself born- and that this something needs for you to be distracted so that it can be born as perfectly as possible.”
- Anne Lamott, “Traveling Mercies: Some thoughts on faith.”
My dream of living in the country with S is trying to be born and all these struggles I have experienced in the last few days are only labor pains and just like when a woman gives birth, once I am there I will quickly forget about all the pain.
