“It matters how we choose to encounter transition.
In the waiting we have important work to do.
We must reflect, remember, recover
who we are and who we are not.
In the waiting we are given time to confess and repent,
to forgive and heal,
to gather our strength and courage for all that is yet to come.
In the waiting we prepare and plan,
queue up resources,
hone our skills,
negotiate connections and do everything – everything –
we can to ensure continued work
and the eventual success of an outcome
we cannot imagine and will never see.”
- Shay MacKay, “The Grace Within the Waiting”
