I was driving home from town last night, along our country road.
My eyes were fixed on the centre, unbroken lines that curve and straighten, guiding me home.
I thought about how my life is mirrored in these unbroken lines. Sometimes, they are straight, life is good and everything has a cherry on top.
Don't we all want it to be this way?
When the lines curve, my life seems off centre, something happens or takes over and all I want is for the lines to become straight again.
To be back on track.
To be able to breathe.
Right now, there is a huge curve in The Road, one that is overwhelming and emotional and I really don't know when and how the lines will straighten.
When your child is unwell, when there are many unanswered questions, your mind wanders and the fear of the unknown takes over.
I'll bring you the story, when I can. When I'm ready to share and release the built up anxiety and sadness and confusion that I feel.
Until then I'll watch the lines on The Road, and hope that they straighten and safely take us home.
