Relationships are an interesting lens through which we see our world. Some people lean heavily on their partners to provide a backbone to their life. This happens easily if you have a health challenge and a partner gratefully can add precious support. The challenge in this situation is shining your light and summoning up your courage after there has been a pattern of deferring to your partner during times that you don't feel well. It's a dance and one that requires a lot of understanding on both sides. In the spiritual realm, there is no illness and even if you've been sick for 25 years, and perhaps especially if you've been sick for 25 years, you develop a relentlessness to heal, to persevere, to love and to surrender. Shine on. Love is ever near.
