    This is another one of yours that strikes a chord within me. The writing is beautiful, and loving someone enough to miss them in their absence is beautiful and bittersweet, a sweet sorrow, as is knowing that someone cares enough about US to miss us. Goodbyes are difficult, as is knowing there will come a time when there will never be a return — the hardest part is that we never know when that will be until it’s too late, we never know when we’re saying goodbye for the last time. Maybe I’ve just lost too many people in my life.

    • Thank you Karen…one undeniable aspect of life is that everything has two sides. Keeping that in mind throughout our sojourn here helps us to maintain a balanced perspective. Still, at this point, at least in my life, it is hard to deal with the losses as they become more frequent. As you point out, it’s that never knowing when we’re saying goodbye for the last time that makes it even more difficult. All the more reason to express our love and appreciation in the here and now to those we care about…
