Loving Wishes

As my mother collapsed today

and is being treated in the hospital

supported by an external pace maker

and awaiting an internal, permanent one next week,

I am sending loving wishes her way:

May all her fears be soothed.

May her pain be eased.

May her caregivers be extra kind.

May her doctors be wise and competent.

May her inner child find refuge.

May her heart receive support

and her body new strength.

May this procedure prolong her life

and renew her strength.

May all things work together for good.

May she know that she is loved,

and may she feel safe

in the midst of her vulnerability.
