Hope to hang on to a dream

by Virginia (La Crescenta, Ca)

Dear God,

I am struggling to either hang on or let go of a dream that I wanted to fulfill in this lifetime. I don’t know whether to let go of this dream or to change it. I am in deep turmoil and anguish. You gave me the gift of teaching and inspiring children to learn. I am certain that was my destiny. Retirement is approaching and I want to continue to live a fulfilling life with my husband who is now retired and plagued with disabilities resulting from a stroke. Please give me guidance. I am afraid of continuing to pursue that dream if it wasn’t meant to be. Should I let go and accept that it wasn’t meant to be? Is there another plan for us? I can’t help but feel that you are trying to help us. Thank you. Please forgive my lack of strength and patience.
