“The real glory is being knocked to your knees and then coming back. That’s real glory. That’s the essence of it.” Vince Lombardi |
This past week has been tough and I still can’t really find words to explain it. We spent a day with my mom at the hospital, and grace upon grace, the diagnosis wasn’t as severe as the symptoms she experienced.
My heart wants to burst that we are tightly surrounded by community and work colleagues that prayed and supported us. We are in awe of a health care system that we as “Canadians” now receive free of charge. Where a Specialist, even though travelling, sends an e-mail to follow-up and checks in to make sure treatment is going as planned. Where a Physiotherapist, even though it’s a long weekend, finds a space to treat and make sure there is time for a follow-up appointment before her long-haul flight back to South Africa.
For now, what I do know, this week was a testimony that grace runs deep in our lives. That getting back up from our knees, stepping back up and admiring the “whole picture” my breath is taken away. -
Taking one more step further away, I spot a tiny Riaan way below in my picture - sometimes you don’t always have to have the perfect words and breathing a sigh of relief that it’s the weekend, I think can also just be enough 👋🏻 #lifeofadventure #ohcanada #contax645 #portra400 #thefindlab #ishootfilm #darlingweekend
