Sustenance for the sick.

If, for some reason, you want to see what this looks like as a slow motion movie, click on the picture.I whipped up a hot, fresh batch of chicken soup with tiny star noodles for my sick daughter. She’s supposed be up rehearsing on stage as one of the leads in her high school’s Oklahoma production this weekend. Instead, she’s up in bed. I thought the stars were an appropriate flourish.

Setting it down on the kitchen table, beautiful sunlight streamed in through the window creating another star, a gorgeous starburst. I ran to get my camera; my ailing daughter could wait. I was thinking about any number of metaphors or spiritual meanderings that I could type out here, but that whole chicken soup for the soul thing was already taken.

A day later and no earth-changing revelations have popped into my brain. Now it’s time for more hopeful healing with one of her favorite childhood meals, “buhsgetti.”

The show must go on!
