Simply trying.

Standard

…before Al Anon meeting…
to be calm
to be reflective
to rehearse the things i wish i could say
to think of my son
fighting
for his life
his beautiful, beautiful, meaningful life
wondering if other people see him
as i do
wondering if other people
will ever
put in the work that he needs
for recovery
knowing that he must recover
nonetheless
even if they flick their chins at his situation
with the back of their fingers
knowing that – even that
will be part of his recovery
drizzling sunset
quiet, peach and lavender
wishing it could
wash this all right
knowing He’s there.
i trust Him.
i chuckle –
i know He didn’t forget me in this valley…
i’m sure He’s looking for juuuust the right
mountain top to set me on.

    I am praying the Holy Word over you and your family today! I just wanted to leave you with 2 scriptures. Praying they encourage you in such a way that no human words can.
