Yesterday morning, my (16 year old) baby boy had eye surgery. It was outpatient surgery, but you know. Thinking of needles moving anywhere near your eyeball is eek.
When I arrived at the hospital’s surgical waiting room, I thanked God because WINDOWS. Beautiful walls of windows! If you read Girl Meets Change, you know I’m no fan of hospital waiting rooms without windows. Why in the Sam Hill would someone even build such a thing? I mean, the wait time in them feels infinitely longer.
Sometimes conditions for waiting are ideal. Often they are not. At those times, I’ve discovered gratitude provides a window to a windowless room. And always gratitude keeps us from wandering in the dark.
So thank you God for waiting room windows.
Thank you that my boy is recovering magnificently from surgery.
Thank you that the weekend is here.
Whatever your weekend holds and no matter how many windows you are or aren’t sitting close to, I pray you feel the Light that is the presence of Christ.
And I pray you know his love in especially strong ways today.
Happy weekend-ing, friends.
