It’s Wednesday, which means it is time for Wishcasting with Jamie! Today’s prompt is
Where Do You Wish for Healing?
I think there are the most obvious places right now: this country that is reeling from the terror of the last week and shut down of Boston as well as the heartbreak of West, Texas. It feels like we have lost our center, like we are off-balance and searching. Not that everything has to have meaning. I think there are lots of things in life that have no explanation and no meaning. But we were thinking that we were OK. And now we maybe aren’t. Or maybe in a week or two we won’t be so raw and we’ll be complacent again. I don’t know.
It just feels…like we are…off-balance and in need of some balm for our souls.
I’d like some healing for my Sner and the GrandSner. The Sner has been ill for almost two years due to ammonia and exhaust exposure during the course of her job. The damage to her lungs will not get better; her illness is chronic. Her life has changed dramatically, and it has taken a toll. While healing in the traditional sense is not a possibility, comfort certainly could be. And for the GrandSner, who has extremely limited heart function and who’s steady, slow decline has apparently begun to accelerate. I will get to see her at the end of May. It’s a short while away in the grand scheme of things, but it is an incredibly long time in her scheme of things.
And finally for me…I’m still not feeling right. And my body is still not doing the things that it was designed to do. I’m doing my best to accept the things that I cannot do anything about and not worry about the rest of it. But I can’t shake that I don’t feel right.
On this Wednesday, where do you need some healing? What are you wishing for this week?
