There comes a time in life when you realise that somethings just happen.
I won’t say they happen for a reason, although they probably do, but more that they just happen and it seems that there is nothing we can do to change it at all.
There are some who have lost dear friends.
Friends they have known their whole lives throughout childhood. Friends who have been with them through thick & thin, through the very best of times and the very worst of times. Friends who are not really friends, but somehow became family along the way.
There are some who have lost a family member.
And it doesn’t seem fair, and it doesn’t seem right, that the very special bond is torn apart by illness and life. A mother or father, or sister or brother, who can never, and will never be forgotten.
There are some who have lost children, the most unspeakable thing of all. The biggest injustice of all. When a parent would gladly swap places with their child without hesitation.
There are some who have lost those from the older generation. A most treasured member of the family. The person who has always been there, always.
Life can be so cruel. There is no rhyme nor reason I am finding more and more.
Of course I am no expert (I wish I was) and I don’t always know what to say in the right places, but I do know one thing – life is strange.
Taking the time to listen, taking the time to understand means more than you will ever know.
Once a heart is broken it can’t be fixed.
Time heals, slowly, but it does.
Appreciate every moment with those you love and smile at the precious memories of those who have gone.
Somethings in life just happen.
I am no expert.
I only wish I was.
