Facing My Fear
Went for my walk; to face my giants. I never saw a snake; thankfully... but walked where the one had struck at me. Must admit; I felt queasy... -- no;- totally sick to my stomach was more like it. God With Us, in my ears. ;)
I really hate to admit how afraid I truly felt. But I made it, and tried to ignore my feelings. I walked to the very spot where it struck. When I got to the pond, I walked around it, with that gruesome scene from Lonesome Dove on my mind. Then something zoomed by, and it dawned on me what it was: my first dragonfly of the year! If that weren't enough, then I saw another, then another,... and still more!
"When you see a dragonfly, know I love you and I'm all around you," she said.
In an instant my queasiness stopped.
