Love, Life, Death.

It’s amazing how an emotional work out can be more exhausting than a physical one. Over the years as we grow-up and take on our roles as a spouse and as a parent, bringing other individuals into the family with their flavor for life, we change ourselves and we watch other change. We all change and grow at different rates, some not fast enough, and some we might feel grow off in the wrong direction. Sometimes we grow apart.

Through this pain and void in our relationships with loved ones, life goes on as time does. Separately, we experience life’s pleasures and disappointments and resentments grow from absence. “Where were you when I needed you most?” is sometimes the hardest to forgive.

Ignorance, some say is bliss, however it can be quite painful to find while off in another direction, there is somewhere you were suppose to have been and unbeknownst, another wedge was pushed in.

I have a funeral and a family reunion to attend. Sad, yet bittersweet.

    Life always ‘goes on’. And in so doing, it throws blankets over the things we need revealed and comforted the most. I know where you’re coming from. And I hope you get a phone call or note or email.

    Here’s my best wishes.

      Hey Cayman,
      It is too bad that it takes such a tragedy as death to bring us back together. But it is something how, with loved ones, we pick up and go on, hug and heal. Hopefully come together closer than before. Life is too short.
      Thank you for your best wishes, it is so nice to see you still reading : )
      My best to you!
