Well my friends we’ve made it to December 1. Wars and turmoil in the world, and another year is almost done regardless.
Now you may be wondering why I sound so maudlin today, but today’s actually a break through day for me. You see, for 12 years I’ve ridden an emotional roller coaster grieving: first for Mom who died December 27, 2002 (October 30 – December 31 were hell for me; crying and sleepless nights were my plight), and then the added melancholy of my slow deteriorating vision was added to the emotional mix.
Now I can’t say for certain that all the tears are behind me, but I don’t feel the need to sleep with a box of tissues (actually it’s toilet paper because it’s cheaper); so I know that’s an improvement.
Anyway my point is: earth keeps spinning whether we want it to or not; so why not be grateful for a new day and pray for many more. (Just don’t take 12 friggin years “to get over it” like moi’ did.) Onward…
