I am usually pretty willing to do most anything. I had to be willing most of my life. The career that I chose led me down a path of caring and here in these years I call 'retirement' I am willing to care for the one who chose to care for us all those years ago. We also chose to be 'willing' when we opened our homes and our hearts five years ago to two of our grandchildren, who were in need of care. Richard was, by far, more willing than I was, but he convinced me it was the right thing to do. And it was!
I am willing to let go! I am willing to forgive. I am more un-willing when it comes to forgetting. I need to be more forgiving to people in my life who have left me hurting. But I am unwilling to be walked on. I am not willing to settle for less. I am unwilling to take all the blame. But I am willing to move on.
Really, I am willing! I am willing to keep trying and learning and living. But I can't take on more than I can do. For that I am not willing...
