Dropping her line into Fool’s Lake, she patiently waited for something to bite. Fishing was a little like her life at the moment. She had to wait quietly, calmly, for the results she wished to know right now. But worrying about possibilities would not speed up the process in any way. Taking a deep breath, she looked out onto the rippling blue water of the lake. She allowed the tranquillity of the scene to seep into her soul and quieten her fears. The light breeze moved through her hair and the silence on the pier was an unexpected gift. She knew that if the tests were positive and she did have cancer, her life would change. No longer would she tumble headlong into meetings and flights all over the country. Instead, hospital visits would be on her agenda. Her priority would be her health and the healing of her body.
What would you do while waiting for life-changing news?
