Sometimes . . .

You learn things you wish you could un-know.  Things happen to your friends or family that are so unspeakable you're at a loss for what to do or how to help.  You wish you could wave a magic wand and make everything right in the world again.  But you can't.  So you take to your bed with its big, warm down comforter and close your eyes for a while because from that vantage point you can almost kind-of pretend that things aren't so rough on the outside.  That the truth is what you thought you knew before today.  That the people you love are happy and care-free.  And that we're all safe from the corruption and evil in the world.  Even though we're not.  And at some point you know you'll have no choice but to put your big-girl pants back on and face facts and realize that even though you have so seemingly little to offer by way of help, you must try to offer something.  And be grateful for what you have because you just can't take anything for granted.

Yeah.  That's today.

  1. I hope this doesn't sound trite, because it's not. . . but I know that feeling. It's a painful feeling. And somehow, though it really doesn't seem possible, "time heals all wounds," or at least makes them seem more bearable. Which, now that I think about it, was the point of your whole post.
