Tonight is a rare occasion when I write as Anne Marie.
Last night was a rough, hospital night. As my BFF Sorcha would say, it was one of those nights when nothing you do makes any difference. She learned from her mother’s nursing wisdom, back in World War I. I’ve learned from twenty seven years as a Respiratory Therapist. But, in 2015, those wise words still ring true.
Everyone knows the right thing to do, but so few stand up and make it happen. Because, it’s hard. Doing nothing is easy. Doing the right thing takes guts. I watched Scandal tonight and thought, Olivia Pope and Sorcha Alden would have hit it off. Two strong women, from different times, with the same mind.
So, maybe, just maybe, by God’s grace, our bad night turns good in the end. It happens. We’re due.
Better yet, is the excitement of joy to come. Joy with a capital J….or a capital R.
Little girl…your world awaits.
