Let’s Just Get To The Bottom Of This Hill

I read many blogs that deal with Internet Marketing. ¬†I find the subject interesting. One of my favorites is a blog called Psychotactics by Sean D’Sousa.

In his latest newsletter Sean wasn’t talking to grieving parents, but he could have been.

Imagine thirty thousand menacing obstacles in your path to success.
You’re dehydrated. Hungry as hell. And wobbling like an Irishman on
too much Guinness. Your eyes hurt, your head throbs and your will
is all but broken. You’re not even sure you want to go on.

Isn’t that how you’ve felt?

I’ve heard so many parents that have lost a child say they no longer want to go on… don’t want to live anymore. In those dark days after our kids died we just can’t see any way we can deal with it.

As in the character Frodo, in the final episode of the ‘Lord of the
Rings-The Return of the King.’

Terror and dismay gleam from Frodo’s big, expressive blue eyes. In
the distance, he can see his goal. But it seems to him like he’ll
never get there. He turns to Sam and says in a defeated tone, “Sam,
it’s the Eye,” referring to the eye of Sauron – the enemy he must

And Sam turns to Frodo in a soft, encouraging voice and says,
“Let’s just get to the bottom of this hill, Mr.Frodo.”

And that’s how it is.

Just get to the bottom of this hill. Just face this day. Take one step at a time.

Slowly, ever so slowly, you get above the fog. The darkness lets in some light. The pain becomes less intense.

The journey isn’t an easy one. The monsters and¬†obstacles will always be there. Face them as they come. One at a time. Take the next step.

Just get to the bottom of this hill.
