When Life Knocks at Your Door

When life knocked at my door and the visitor was unexpected and unwanted, I was immediately overwhelmed with emotions.
For days following the visit, I didn’t want to share the news with anyone. I didn’t want sympathy. I didn’t want pity. I just wanted to be left alone. I needed time to process the news. We all did!
Life had suddenly been put into perspective. The thorns that had been buried under our skin over the years, prior to the visitor, had suddenly vanished.
Love is all that prevails now.
