Five Minute Friday: Here


August 3, 2012 by Beth Hess

Here, you take it.

No, wait. I got it.

Ughhh … I am so over this. Here, it’s yours.

I don’t like the way you’re holding it. Can I have it back?

Too heavy. Too hard. Not mine to drag behind me anyway. Here, I give up.

Over and over I pull my hands from the wheel of control in my life. I remember, momentarily, to float. Only to grab it back and move things as frantically as I know. It must look just flat ridiculous to watch me travel this road, moving this way, then that. Trying to drive from the passenger seat.

So here I am again. Laying it down. Letting go.

Here, Lord. Here.

    Dropping in from Five Minute Friday. Really liked your take on “here.” I too struggle with letting go of control, and now you’ve given me imagery to think on when I’m pulling and tugging for my own way! 🙂
