Not a single person warned that this would happen (this running so wildly, and never stopping for breath…this giving all of herself, without stopping to question), that it would result in this. But it was all she knew, and it was everything that she had. Her entire faith, her entire process. Never a chance to breathe, totally surrounded in everything she knew. But it ends. And it changes. And we have to open our eyes eventually.
