Rise Above the Blah

Yesterday it was blah; aware of the inertia, the drag, fighting to steady, to focus, to go forward. Mulled down.

Then our son had an allergic reaction to something he ate. His stomach was upset; he felt uneven, unsettled. He was anxious, uneasy. He was sick a couple of times, emptying things out.

Through all this things come into quick focus; the blah falls away.

We helped him through, helped him clean up, settle down.

It’s a moment to rise. These are the moments we’re called to, parents helping their kids through the struggle; it pushes our own struggles aside.

Rise above yourself; rise above the blah. Somehow I did. You can too.
