|I snapped this photo on a breezy Sunday morning before the beginning of a church service. |
This morning, my mother was admitted to the hospital. For about an hour this morning, I fought off a heavy stream of tears. A few months back, my father passed away. Losing my father was difficult. I just do not even want to imagine losing my mother right now.
My mother has struggled with various illness over the years and has always managed to bounce back. In fact, she has rarely let illness stop her from enjoying her life.
This morning during my near crying jag, I scrolled through my camera and found this photo. As I gazed upon it, I felt a calm come over me. The tree is standing so steady through the strong breeze. During this scary time, I am envisioning myself as the tree in the photo.
