One Moment in Time

“I want one moment in time
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I’m racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity”

(One Moment in Time, Whitney Houston)


My dreams no longer count, and the answers are out of my hands, but this is my moment in time.  A moment that will define me.  Every challenge that has gone before will fade in significance as I meet this new challenge head on.  Can I be more than I fear that I am?  Do I have the courage to face my destiny without backing down?  I don’t know.  What I do know is that so far I have never backed down from a major challenge in my life.  This cancer may break me, but I will fight it with all of the inner strength, serenity and grace that I can muster.
