My mother was checked into room 2315 at Kaiser Hospital hospital last night. Her chest? Pains? Swelling somewhere? She is in California. I am in Georgia. I felt far away from home. Far away from her. Vulnerable. There was nothing for me to do but pray, wait, breathe. Believe. Believe. Breathe. Pray. Wait. As the night turned into morning I realized that I am always vulnerable. Wherever I am. Wherever I am, whatever the circumstances, there is never much more for me to do, than surrender to what is.
My mother was released from the hospital this afternoon. Thank You, God.
