Headway, Painfully

Dear Little Sister,

I see you, rowing hard.
I see that boat tossing on the waves, see you struggling with stretched arms and stretched courage and stretched patience to stay up and on course.

I see the frayed edges of your heart, the way your hope is rubbed raw.

You are beautiful and brave,
With that hard knot of persistence clenched in your belly.

I see you.

You are not alone.

You are never, never alone.

Mark 6:48 - And he saw that they were making headway painfully, for the wind was against them.
