I love words and sayings, they keep me in a state of Wonder… And although I’ve been known to speak the wrong ones on occasion and miss spell them often, I still love words!
“Out of woods” came to mind this morning. I was thinking about a family meeting that will take place to discuss my parents current situation.
I thought… He’s out of the woods! Making reference to my dads pneumonia.
Only to realize, what’s on the edge of the woods looks even scarier!
Not knowing what’s next and the thought of a nursing home breaks my heart… Although they are not quite there yet, it is just a matter of time.
As I write about this season in my life, I have come to realize it’s my own type of personal therapy. I am thankful for being able to write and share my thoughts. For me, it is an amazing way to release my emotions that may otherwise have stayed suppressed.
Summed up in words…
Dads “out of the woods”
I’m still “spinning plates”
My family is on a “roller coaster ride”
And mom, well, “I’m lost for words” which is exactly what happens to her daily…
So today’s life lesson…
In awe and wonder of it all…
