At the end of my Weight Watchers meeting, our leader had a person in the back remove her sticky name tag and roll it into a ball. Then, she was told to pass the ball to the person beside her and have that person add her name tag to the sticky ball.
One by one, we added our names to the ball as we stuck our name tags on.
Then, the leader held the ball and said, “Someone here might need more support this week. You get to take the ball and bring us all home with you.”
A woman behind me asked for the ball, bringing us all with her into the difficult journey of her week.
She’s not alone. I saw our names in her hand.
