There’s A Bright Side… Somewhere…
Yeah… it’s been one of those times. I said goodbye to five people I knew in the last thirty days… may they all ride free to the edge of the universe! There is no life without death and truthfully, I embrace that as I must. As Rev. Davis would say, though… there’s a bright side, somewhere. I went to Izze’s school to pick her up today and we stopped off at the playground so she could hang with her friends. She headed straight for the big kid swing and before I knew it, she was parallel with the crossbar. That girl flew! Yeah, I’ve lost some friends… all of whom lived a full life even if it was too short by my standards… but my daughter flies… and so does my son in his way and you know… it truly gets no better than that.
I would take a bullet for my kids and I wish there were some way I could infuse the dubious benefits of my experience into their ken… but there is not and I must accept that. In this time though… they fly. Vanessa flies too… soars…
May they always fly
My blessings are boundless.
