When things are hard, or scary, or hopeless, when life is whizzing out of control, when you have no idea what to do…
Find a small moment and hold on to it.
Maybe it is the memory of her smile, or the way he smelled when you hugged him.
Maybe it’s the big breath she took before she did something difficult and scary, or the way he reached out to take your hand without looking.
Maybe it’s the way she talks in her sleep, or the dribble of milk down his chin.
Whatever it is, however small it is, hold on to it.
Hold on until your fingers ache.
Hold on until the fear recedes a little.
Hold on until you can breathe again.
Hold on for dear life.
Hold until another small moment comes along for you to collect.
Eventually you will have a collection of moments to remind you that you love, and are loved, and that you can hold on, we can hold on together, until it passes…
What little thing will you hold on to today?
What small moment of hope will you tuck into your pocket and save for when you need it?
What lovely little moments give you the strength to keep going when things are tough?
