This week I was sitting next to a woman in the doctor's office, passively eavesdropping as she spoke to someone on her cell phone. She seemed to be consoling the person about something that had happened recently in his/her life, and my ears perked up when she said this:
"It's just one leaf on the tree. Let it fall."
Yes. Yes yes yes. As my life has changed and shifted in the last few years there have been many leaves. But the tree is healthy and strong, and for that I am grateful.
