Do you ever have one of those days when your heart just f**king hurts?
When someone’s story of grief and loss gets you right in the gut and knocks the breath clean out of your lungs.
When all you want to do is go round up your loved ones and hold them tight.
Today is one of those days for me.
We throw away words like ‘life is short’ and ‘count your blessings’ – every day….
We say them often, we hear them a lot but some days, they really hit home.
There are a LOT of people suffering today.
Some don’t know how they will go on.
Some had no idea how much pain a human could take until this day…. a child waking up without a mother, a parent without a child, a husband without a wife. It’s all going on somewhere right now.
Life can be beautiful, yes, but it can be cruel too.
When your life is good, just ‘okay’ even, enjoy.
For God’s sake enjoy.
An ‘Okay day’ means you are blessed.
Today is one of those days when my heart really hurts and I am counting my blessings one by one…it will take me a long time.
