There are a lot of things in life I would love to hide from you. Mom and I were talking about it the other night. Its a different world than when we grew up. Pain and heartache are inevitable in life.
I will be the first to tell you that growing up I learned that men don’t cry. I kept to this for many years and still do, publicly. However, sometimes its good just to let it out, either with someone very close to you or alone. I didn’t know what true pain was until my father passed away. Its been seven months now. The days at the beginning were much longer and hurt much more. I certainly don’t feel better today but I don’t feel worse. Things arise on a daily basis that are firsts without him.
I don’t know that this pain will ever go away. I can’t speak to that yet. What I can tell you is that no matter how bad things get, time will help the healing process. For the smaller things, they’ll fade. For the larger, will work through it together.
