There are days that feel…so big. Giant-seeming problems without fixes, fears without a foe to focus upon, and massive feelings of helplessness and sadness even when you feel like you’re really trying to do everything right.
It’s 10 times worse when it’s about your kid.
I can stomach most things if it’s about me. But my little son, all of 4 years old, has a nasty rash and bumps that won’t go away, can’t hear out of his ears right now, and I’m now hearing from his teacher that maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea to hold him back a year before attempting kindergarten…while waiting to see if he’s going to need another ear tube surgery (which would be his 3rd in 4 years).
My emotions are all over. My brain is all over – looking at what it would take to move to a different district, what might moving to the public school might change, what could fix his rash, what are we going to be able to do about his ears, why haven’t I changed pediatrician a before now…
Not necessarily creating a mountain of a molehill but a large vortex of pain and fear and anxiety and helplessness.
Dear Jesus, take the wheel. I know not where to go or think, I don’t know what the next steps are, but I trust you do. I will walk in peace and faith today knowing if I take that step, all the rest will follow.
Thank You God.
