I got a special card from Gigi (my mom’s mom) last night in the mail that had especially good timing to lift my spirits.   Here is what it said:

When it seems everything is falling down around us, 
something strong and certain within us
is preparing to spread its wings and soar.

I’ve seen you meet challenge and setback
with wings of your spirit outspread.
Transforming your pain
into  power,
courageously moving ahead…

So as you continue your journey
remember what I know is true-
You’ll once again rise on the wings of your soul
more graceful, more joyful,
more YOU.

I love you, Gigi.
