I sit beside the hospital window feeling a draft that sends shivers through me. A blanket of calmness wraps itself around me while I stare out at the bleak October day. As I listen to the geese that are flying by in perfect formation, I have an overwhelming sense that all is as it should be. I don’t know who is responsible, who to thank for my hopeful prognosis. The generation that has just passed before me? God? As gratitude washes over me, I am reminded how little we know of whose hands hold our fate.
