At one time or another, we are all plagued with depression, self-doubt, angst…some more than others. I am blessed to be able to say that I have led a relatively happy life. Happy childhood, met my husband at 23 right out of college, happy marriage, love my career…I’ve been very lucky. But, then my mom died, unexpectedly.
Due to circumstances in my own life (i.e. recent, tragic deaths of family members), when I read this prompt, all that goes through my frantic mind, is what if Daddy dies? That is something I struggle with a lot right now…every time he walks out the damn door to go to work, I think, what if this is the last time that I see him?
Life happens…and often, it is painful and challenging and relentless and it comes down upon you like a tidal wave.
It is easy to get caught up in the day-to-day, in the hardships, in life...but today, I'm taking a moment to say that despite everything going on in my life right now, I feel lucky.
