What to muse about today?

20120705-210938.jpgSometimes life is just down-right mean.  Not simply unfair, but more than that.  Mean.  Of course, there’s nothing to do.  As much as you want, hope, there’s nothing you can do to change it, to make it better, make the pain of it fade away. It makes you feel so powerless, so small and frail.  Alone.

My friend, my friend’s husband, is not doing well.  He’s in pain.  My friend is hurting.  I just want to help, somehow.  But there really is nothing I can do to help.  Nothing anyone can do.  It’s going so fast, too fast.  A car with no brakes going down a mountain.  A mountain that you really wanted to only be a slight hill. Anything that would make the journey be easier and slower.  To be able to have more time.  We all really want to have more time.  Time with those we love, doing things we love, being loved.

Sometimes all you can do it hold on to who you love, and love them.  And hope you get to find brakes, or you get the long, slow hill.

    :-( {{{{Lisa}}}} and pass those hugs to your friend. It is definitely important to be sure to tell those around you how much you love them—today!!! Don’t let a day go by without it. And yes, life is sometimes hard to take…but there is a purpose for it–even though we can’t see it at the moment of the hurting. Again, sorry you’re having to go thru this, and am sending prayer for your friend as well as you!!!

      Thanks, Kat. We’ll be seeing them tomorrow, hopefully, and I’ll pass those hugs along. Here’s hoping the pain is fleeting, and everyone can heal quickly.
