Good morning! I am off today. WooHoo!!!
It's nice and cool today and it should get up to only 74 degrees. Lovely weather. We had a great dinner last night. I love fresh vegetables, especially grilled. Yumm-O!!!
I have been doing a lot of thinking lately.... about life. Life can really suck sometimes. Life can be overwhelming when you think too much about it. I can see how some people literally go crazy.
I think about my parents a lot. It's scary to know that one day, they won't be here. I don't think they are scared to die, but I do think they are afraid to leave their children and grandchildren. I know from being a mother myself, the hardest part about dying is knowing you will be leaving your children behind. I cry now just thinking about it.
As children, we dread the day our parents pass. The pain is unbearable, to the point of breaking a person. I don't know what I will do without my parents. They are reaching close to 55 and 57, almost 60 soon. There are now times where they talk about friends and acquaintances who have died. It's scary. It's scary because I know how much pain people go through. If I was single with no children or siblings, my wish would be to die before my parents. That way I wouldn't have to feel the pain. How selfish am I? I know that sounds bad, but I don't know how I could bear it.
Oh goodness! Such a sad post now. I guess they can't all be peaches and cream.
To my dear friend Jamie,
I am so sorry you are going through this now. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Your strength is admirable and inspirational. I wish you lived closer. I would give you a hug.
