Today I took care of myself. Three doctor appointments. All hard. All to help me be in, and move through, the current chaos that has found me. I’m so thankful for professionals in my life who tell me things like eat lots of asparagus, and give your body lots of warmth, and extend yourself lots and lots and lots of grace. Feel what you are feeling. Things are going to be sloppy for a while.

It’s the “for a while” part that gives me hope. I will not be here forever, but it’s pointless to try to be somewhere else right now.

And so, this song has been on repeat all afternoon. It’s the one thing I know I can do, for now.
