A thread of loss has woven it’s way into my today.
A phone call brought the news of the 27 year old son of a childhood friend ( who had a wife and a small child) who passed away just before Christmas. Time is short for all of us. None of us know when our time will end, we are such fragile creatures. But I have today. And I have now. I will make the most of this every moment.
After 11 days of being disgustingly healthy my body paid me back; headache, upset tummy, no energy. That’s okay. Tomorrow is another day.
As the rain threw itself down ( and sometimes even around just for fun) a daughter and her beau of 10 months ended their relationship. It was not right, and made her lately more miserable than happy. I have been there for her all evening, with hugs, a listening ear and quiet non-intrusive support. She knows she is loved.
I want a magic wand that fixes everything.
