jackson is spending the night with my in-laws.
i find myself walking by his room;
i take a quick glance inside.
that familiar feeling starts to bubble in my chest-
a mixture of anxiety + longing.
so i begin clean his room.
i vacuum + straighten toys + fold clothes.
and once i am finished,
i grab my book + a medicine ball tea
and read.
and sip.
and read.
and sip.

as the sun sets outside his window,
i feel that other familiar feeling-

this is what surrender looks like,
at least for me,
in this season, in these days.
