One day at a time. I’ve heard it my whole life. But since my husband’s Acute Myeloid Leukemia diagnosis, it has taken on a whole new meaning. As a natural worrier, it has been a struggle to not allow the fear of tomorrow rob us of the joy of today.
A friend of ours recently lost his 8 year old daughter in a tragic accident. Another friend lost his battle to his own demons and was found dead – a father of 3 beautiful children. The news of Kate Spade’s death this week – a designer I greatly admired, was also a shock. It seems everyone really is fighting a battle of some sort. Addiction. Depression. Health. Insecurity. Emotional Distress. – the list goes on and on.
First, I want ot tell you, I am always here. Imperfect, but available. If you need a shoulder to lean on, I’m your man.
Second, I want to share the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline phone number. If you or someone you love is in distress, call 1-800-273-8255 24/7.
I designed this encouraging greeting card with the hope that it might be a form of connection – a gentle reminder to share with someone who might need to slow down, take a step back and understand they are cared for and loved.
Finally, I would like to share a Bible verse that I’ve drawn a lot of strength from over the past year and a half.
“Therefore, stop worrying about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
With love, Jason
