Life: September 2, 2009

Life

Death certificates… forwarded mail… letters from banks… just a few of the things Life brings you when there is a death in the family.

Emergency card forms… homework folders… payments for lunch accounts… just a few of the things Life brings you when a new school year begins.

Ash from fires miles away… air conditioners running incessantly… tears and tempers… just a few of the things Life brings you when the traditional end of summer heat wave arrives.

Lunch with friends… talks in restaurant parking lots and the phone… greetings on Facebook… encouraging tweets… just a few of the things Life brings you when you are experiencing the above.

Sadness… gratitude… restlessness… confusion… anger… lethargy… avoidance… many of the feelings I've been having as I live this Life right now.

When do you find time to catch your breath?

Ain't life complicated? good luck with all that and onward through the fog.

I wish I could hug you in person. :)

I know it has taken me forever to respond to this, but you are on my heart and in my prayers daily.

there is no perfect thing to say, but I wish I could be closer to know when the hardness of it is hitting you - without words.

Thinking of you today Mary Lue. Although some of the things written in this post are difficult or sad - it is written very, very well.

You made me feel what you are feeling.
