Waiting Patiently

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.

  1. I love your story Colline! Well done! I did have life changing news in February 2014…Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma, which is a blood cancer. It definitely has changed my life, and I am doing OK! No more stress in my life which is a contributing factor for one with any cancer! Thank you for participating in the MFtS challenge! See you next week? Be well… ^..^

    1. Thank you so much. And it is good to hear you are now doing better. Stress is a contributing factor to so much in our lives.
      And yes, you will see a contribution of mine again. I enjoy your prompts.

  2. Colline, a great piece about finding calm in the midst of a health crisis.
    The photo reminds me of my Dad and how much he loved fishing. We wouldn’t have been able to pull him away from this spot, even for dinner.
