Fandango has given us an assignment:
Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, will be to post a story, a poem, an image, an interpretation of what the expression means to you, or to do whatever it is that you want to do based upon the daily adage. Today’s adage is:
All’s well that ends well
Well…at first I was not sure what to do with today’s adage. I have been out all day and I am not feeling very creative this evening. I just want to crawl to bed and rest my painful head. Major headache raging all day!
However…I want to waffle for a little bit about what I think this adage means to me. I guess when I hear this expression, or use it, I define it as being willing to put up with a lot so long as the end result is good.
In fact, along the journey there can be bumps and scrapes and hardships. But when you reach the wonderful destination you have been journeying towards, well, the memory of the difficulties seem to melt away.
I have felt that way with Jack in recent months. It’s been a very rocky ride, there was a lot of pain and sadness along the way. However now…what a complete reverse in our situation! All the trouble seems to have faded into insignificance. All that matters now is the wonderful ending.
Do I think that everything that happened along the way was necessary to get us to where we are today? Nope! But nonetheless, now that we have reached an ending that we both longed for and worried might never happen, the challenges we faced are less provoking. We are at peace with what happened along the awful journey to get here.
One of the lines I picked up on in a popular song from last year, was “all’s well that ends well to end up with you“. It really struck a chord with me. I never imagined that things would work out so wonderfully well. I don’t mind too much what happens in the future. A weight has been lifted from my heart. Despite the hardships, it has all ended up well!
