Dr. Lazarus, that is the best!
I'll be honest with you, I have my moments, obviously.
Overall though, and probably amazing and looked askance upon by some people, I'm really and truly ok.
I decided today was the day to update. The time was just right.
This is his journey, not mine. He's not ready to go anywhere, or even thinks about it....yet. He's honestly just in what the day brings.
I'm on my own journey.
He's not complaining about not being able to breath, although it's obvious a lot of the time it is.
I keep myself busy. Not like to act like something isn't happening, but what's the alternative? To sit around and worry?
Yeah, I worry, but keeping up my own life keeps things in perspective.
I think about stuff like, everyone makes such a big fuss when a baby is born, and it's obvious you know of a lot that are born every day.
But dying is just as common as being born.
No one acknowledges that though.
It's a sign of the times.
If you're old and ill, just go off somewhere and don't make anyone see that side of life.
Unless that is, you're either famous and die suddenly so everyone can announce to the world how awful they personally feel about it, or some random person who had the good sense to die in such a way to produce a huge sense of drama/outrage/criticism, etc.
I mean, that one 4 year old that accidently fell down into a canyon and dies, or the guy that dies in a boating accident on his honeymoon deserves so much more attention that just a normal everyday death. Right?
People are just drawn to any opportunity it seems, to make what they consider a contribution to some strangers life, if it's a good story on social media. Because really, it's all about them, not the person who died.
dlowan, I want to respond to you, but I have to go out a bit first.
