During the really bad times with Mom, I turn to words to calm me. And today has been a rather bad day. But, there are no words today. As bad as it is, as bad as it will probably get with Mom, I cannot write anything of meaning. Today I received the gift of perspective.
Unfortunately, perspective can arrive in very sad and desperate packages. Mine arrived amid tears and heartbreak... A very dear friend is having the worst day any parent can have. She is losing her child.
So, my words, when I can find them, will be for her.
