There is a natural order to life that I have never realized fully until today, but if life works as it should, each of us will be an orphan at one point in our lives. That is a harsh reality and may sound callous in this moment, but please do not mistake my tenor.
Tonight I am taking a moment to breathe. To inhale what is life and to thank my stars that I had someone who I could call "Grandpa" even if neither of us were ever sure what that was really supposed to mean. I am also thanking my stars that I have my parents for yet another day.
Safe journeys, Grandpa.
oh- and my news from the last post is that I have been selected by Memory Makers online to be interviewed as a member of the fabulous board. I will let you know when it is posted. --much love, L.
