I am a busy mom with 4 sons, a dog, and a hard working husband. Christmas season means lots of fun and extra items on my to-do list. I embrace the annual Christmas card, host a cookie exchange for friends and neighbors, love to decorate and shop for meaningful gifts. It’s a busy time, but it’s fun!
I was right in the middle of all of this when I got a call last week that my mom was taken via ambulance to the hospital (see my previous post, “Please wait”) I have been to the hospital every day since. I spent 7 hours at the hospital yesterday and came home to hungry kids, laundry, and a hyper dog. Today is day 6 that she has been in the hospital and I am feeling very overwhelmed. Everything has stopped for me. I don’t know the next steps for my mom and desperately want to move forward. I feel helpless and nothing is in my control.
Often when we get in these situations, it’s easy to feel alone. I was reminded today to trust God and found Proverbs 3:5-6 very comforting.
“Lean not on your own understanding, but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.”
