Hope for Healing

This past week has been difficult for many people in my extended family.  In several unrelated events, this week has brought tears of pain – both physical and emotional – to people and families that I love.  I won’t share the stories here; they aren’t my stories to tell.  But I will share hopes for healing for the people I love, and the people who take care of them.

I hope my mom recovers from pneumonia quickly, and that she gives her body time to recover.

I hope my cousin heals from his injuries and his doctors put him on the road to recovery.

I hope my Gramma’s time in the hospital is filled with people she loves so she can fully recuperate. 

And, I hope for healing and closure to a very painful and sad “goodbye.”

Throughout this painful week, I’ve looked at Reid and thought about what it would be like for him to be sick, or hurt, or depressed, or anything but my happy little baby.  As selfish as that probably is, I think that is what happens when terrible things happen around us.  We look in the eyes of people we love and search for answers.  Many times, there aren’t answers.  We just have to look for the good, look for the love, accept what we cannot change, and keep going.

It hurts my heart that people I love are hurting.
