Life is Short

Life – capital L Life – hits you with curve balls when you least expect it. Everything you’ve built your life around, everything you’ve looked forward to, suddenly is no longer certain.  Memories are the only thing you’re really left with. Time is short.

I could only lend a patient ear and listen to my friend describe how their family’s life has abruptly changed in the blink of an eye. The resilience that they all demonstrate despite the unimaginable pain that they’re going through is incredible.

Words fail me today. The skies are dark.
