That Stubborn Zodiac

The most important thing in illness is never to lose heart.    ~Nikolai Lenin

I have been struggling with my feelings all night, so much so that I’ve written so many drafts only to hit Ctrl + A then Del. I’ve never been good in comforting, because I never really figured out what the right things to say are. But I stumbled upon this short poem that more than sums up what I want to tell you.

Illness is so limited that:

It cannot cripple love
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot corrode faith
It cannot destroy peace
It cannot kill friendship
It cannot suppress memories
It cannot silence courage
It cannot invade the soul
It cannot steal eternal life
It cannot conquer the spirit

I have no idea what you guys must be going through right now, and the most that I can do is try to share with you words of encouragement that I have found over the internet. In the urgency of all that is happening, none of you may read this. But I hope that if someone just happens to come across this humble blog of mine, that you walk away from the computer with more hope than you had when you first sat in front of it.

I’m praying for all of you.


P.S. Thanks to Jena for the wonderful quote. :)

Allie has seen many a dust bunny in her lifetime, most of them in her dorm room. She is often mistaken as a 13-year old, further intensified by her weird fashion choices that mostly involve cutesy patootsie rings, colorful knee high socks, and ribbons and bows in her hair. She dreams of waking up one day and finding herself as a character in Star Wars. Preferably a jedi. With a purple lightsaber.
