HUG Corner: Thought for the Week - 3/5

Location : North Houston

Healing After Loss (Martha Whitmore Hickman)

"Let not future things disturb thee, for thou wilt come to them, if it shall be necessary, having with thee the same reason which thou now usest for present things."

-Marcus Antoninus

"One of the difficulties we grievers have to contend with is anticipating all those future occasions when we shall be without our loved one.

What is accomplished by anticipating this anguish? Nothing. We can't foresee which troubles will beset us, and even if we could, are we so eager for them that we want them for company long in advance?

Do we think we won't have then the ability we have now - to deal with a crisis? Presumably we'll be at least as able then as we are now and we'll know what to do. 

Why not deal with the events and uncertainties of this day?

I will stay with the anxieties and cares of today, trusting to the unknown future its unknown cares."
