Well Said

One of our IS guys is leaving our department.  He has been with our hospital for 11 years and although I don't know him, I know his mother well.  In his farewell today he included something he has written.  I found it deeply moving and wanted to share it:

"Often, we dream of where we wish to be, but do not know the exact path to take in order to arrive there—the place in life we imagine as our destiny, what we believe to be our purpose. Experience counts that time; persistence; knowledge; a good plan prudently executed; an understanding of one’s gifts and limitations; unconditional forgiveness interwoven with unconditional love; a belief in the paragon of unreciprocated kindness; an appreciation of beauty in the mysterious [or unknown]; a gracious acceptance of the unchangeable; plus inundant laughter all interact as life’s spectrum to help illuminate our way. Destiny, therefore, is not a destination but rather a patiently traveled, well-illumined journey, full of limitless potential when filled with determined, honorable purpose. 1

This started as my story, but has evolved to OUR story. This is the story of life as a single parent to a wonderful little boy while we wait for baby sister. China LID 2.12.07.

But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day.
