The take away of most stories is that everything will turn out as it’s meant to in the end, that everything will be fine if you just keep believing.
But real life isn’t fiction, and there comes a point when you realize that no matter how much faith you have, things aren’t going to turn out all right. Things happen that are irrevocable and devastating.
Last night, I witnessed death for the first time. I’ve lost family members before and been in the room when the decision was made to put down at least 6 beautiful pets.
But last night, I watched one breathe her last. And it was hell.
These are images that will never leave my memory; especially because she didn’t deserve any of it.
The saying is that when it rains, it pours. If that’s true, then my husband and I have been in a hurricane for the past 2½ years. And the hits just won’t stop.
We are alone. We have been for a while as people got wrapped up in their own lives and either cut us off or put too much distance between us to recover.
Things aren’t going to be okay. It’s not a question of if, but when.
