It's Been Two Weeks...
which beats an eternity. I miss my son and my husband very much. I wouldn't be exaggerating to say that I ache for them. Yet, I rejoice at the same time. For tomorrow, I will be reunited with them. I will definitely have a deeper appreciation for their presence.
This is because my Dad just lost his wife. My mother. While I will miss her like a daughter, my dad will miss the woman he had been in love with for 46 years. I can't imagine that sense of loss. The emptiness. I can see it in the blank stare on his face and hear it in the way he shuffles down the hall. I swear he's dusting the floor as he walks.
Not crying about that is difficult at best, and so I hold onto the fact, that I have not suffered that deep a loss yet. I look forward to my joyous reunion while simultaneously hoping my father will be able to weather his loss.
Only time will tell.
