There is Nothing Which I Cannot Do

Yesterday,  after working at the St  Lawrence Market, I stopped by Tim Horton’s and bought a box of Tim Bits for an evening snack.

Tim Horton’s always makes me think of my mom. When she was alive, she and I would meet at Tim Horton’s at College Park every Tuesday. We would sit and chat about what was happening in her life and mine. She’d have coffee or tea, and I’d have an Ice Capp and something sweet to eat, like Tim Bits or a donut. 

Afterwards, Mom and I would browse the stores in the mall and then have dinner at either Cafe California or Sambucas.

Tomorrow would have been Moms 98th birthday, so I’m going to celebrate by ordering dinner from Sambucss and having a cake and finishing off the Tim Bits.

Why the odd tittle for this post you may ask? Well, about 3 weeks ago I popped in to a Tim Horton’s after the Market, and this weird thing happened to me. All of a sudden, out of the blue, there was a voice inside my head that said, “There is Nothing Which I Cannot Do.” It was like an epiphany! For these past few months I’ve been extra stressed out. There’s so much I need to do and so much I want to do. And, honestly, looking for new PSW’s, interviewing them, and then training them has been the most stressful part. 

However, this brilliant phrase has given me strength to carry on. Whenever I’m stressed out I just repeat that over and over in my head and I feel better. I can’t help thinking maybe Moms spirit was in Tim Horton’s and she put that idea in my head. Mom was always there to support me and believed in me.

I love you, Mom, and miss you so terribly much! Like I always used to say, you’re the best Mom in the universe!
