What you gonna do when things go wrong?
What you gonna do when it all cracks up?
What you gonna do when the Love burns down?
What you gonna do when the flames go up?
Who is gonna come and turn the tide?
What’s it gonna take to make a dream survive?
Who’s got the touch to calm the storm inside?
Who’s gonna save you?

Do you know that feeling you get when times are about to be tough? That sense of losing control despite trying to brace yourself for the impact because you know what’s coming? No matter how prepared you think you are, it’s always this sweeping force that knocks you for a loop. Then after the disruption is over, you are left standing in a pile of emotional rubbage.
I’m clearing away that pile and trying to get back to my life. Having my relative here for the amount of time they were only made me more afraid, stressed, and uncertain. I used to hear from them every day, but it has been a few days since their last call. I hear the behavioral health facility they are in has an excellent program. I hope they immerse themselves in the activities that will make them well. I can only do so much then the rest I have to turn over to that higher mysterious force that eventually picks you up and puts you back on your path. He watches over us, and so I’m told, never gives you more than you can handle. I have faith that I can be there for them yet have some distance from the situation. I have faith they will return to a level of normalcy, or better yet, happiness and satisfaction. Some things take time and do not happen overnight. Waiting can be a difficult endeavor.
That said, this is the third phone wallpaper set in the August series. Again, it was before all the chaos blew in and back out of our lives. My husband and I want to go to the beach. But, the realization of those dreams is far in the distance right now. When I created these, I was daydreaming of the beach. This set and others are available at phonewallpaper.art.
