Today's post is a bit on the melancholy side. It's a post for all of us at one moment ... or another. It's a post for people who are hurting and struggling, yet must somehow deal with their issues at the same time they continue living. From my own window today I can view:
- A man whose mother died after a long illness where there was hope for her recovery just a few weeks ago.
- A man whose wife decided after many years of marriage that she wants to move on alone.
- A woman who unexpectedly got pregnant and let that joy permeate her life before she lost the baby after she tripped and fell in her yard.
- A patriarch, who for so long has taken care of everyone and been the family rock, suffered a debilitating stroke just a few years into his retirement.
... oh and every time I'm close to you there's too much I
can't say; and you just walk away; and I forgot to tell you I love you.
