Last week, I found myself in a pause from the Write 31 Days challenge. I moved my mom from the hospital into rehab. I battled fatigue that overwhelmed me traveling back and for to where she is at. On top of it all, I also feel like my anemia worsened and need to visit my doctor soon.
I miss the nights in the hospital with my mom. I know she doesn’t but feels thrilled to be continuing her road to recovery. Those nights etched into my mind a renewal of love for my mom. I took a pause with her to reconnect. I don’t know that this pause to reconnect would have happened on its own naturally.
We all get so busy and hurried, days meander and then fly into weeks and months. We had it our to do list to see our relatives, our close people; but those wishes got knocked down by car problems, health issues, and work schedules.
What if she had not become ill and died suddenly, I don’t know that I would have taken the time with her that I was forced too.
If you are in the same boat, dealing with a loved one who is suffering or recovering from illness, look at these seasons as a gift of pause from God above. I know I do. How do you look at forced seasons of pause?
