This summer was mostly a blur for me. I spent a good part of it with my mom, who has been in hospitals and health/rehabilitation centers for the past two months. She is doing better, regaining her strength and moving forward. Still, things are changing.
I tend to think of the ups and downs in life as seasons – stretches of time that are either ordinary, wonderful or painful. My guess is that this is probably a pretty common thought process. For me, these seasons can be a period of weeks, months or years, and I usually label them once the time of happiness or sadness has passed.
Needless to say, these past several weeks have been difficult for my mom and my family. But during this time I’ve shared many tender moments with my mom that I’ll forever cherish and hold close to my heart.
It’s hard to say how I’ll eventually describe the current season I’m in. Right now I just can’t find the words.
