During your journey on Earth, you face incredible moments of joy, challenge and discomfort. You never know where those "moments" may originate or for how long.
In your life, you may face an accident, loss of a loved one, disintegration of a friendship or disease. A famous philosopher said, "Life is a spiritual boot camp. You will be tested. You must make good choices to thrive."
As a former hospital medical tech, I met a child named Paula in the cancer ward enduring her chemotherapy sessions.
"How does it feel after your chemo treatment?" a family friend asked Paula.
"It feels like an earthquake inside my body," she said. "It shakes my bones and turns my stomach to vomit."
"How do you deal with it?" the family member asked.
"I hold the sky," said Paula.
A small child may be better prepared for life's "boot camp" moments than adults. They don't think so much about their predicament or feel sorry for themselves. They battle onward with their body, mind and spirit.
