Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. -Isaiah 60:1
Another week in the books. I wish I could go back to writing every day as I have 2 dozen articles half written and 20 dozen in my mind…but time is as fleeting as a non-balding spot on my head… So I write when I can and wish I could write the other times.
I just have one little, sort of sad thought for your consideration. Am I the only one who wants to just metaphorically shake my mom and say :
“Wake Up! Snap out of it!!!!”
This was particularly the case about 4 years ago when she completely looked like mom and tried to talk like mom…but couldn’t get over the hump.
This is a tragic thing to say…maybe even mean sounding…but that is not the intent. I just don’t get how someone who looks like, plays the piano like, smiles like, and has everything else in common with the mom of old can just crash….and disappear.
Not that I feel like mom isn’t trying…just the opposite. I KNOW she is.
It is like that feeling you get when you first wake up groggy, or when you just hop online and look at your 401K after today’s fiasco. You just feel like getting your shoulders shaken would snap you out of it. Maybe talking louder? Yep…that’s it. Like talking louder to a deaf person will fix it.
I don’t mean this to sound insensitive, even a little. I just want you to know that that is how it feels. How I feel…
Sadly, it is a throwaway idea…completely counterproductive and mean and fleeting and a product of a desperate mind, hoping/praying for a cure.
Thank you for indulging my sad thoughts here and there. 🙂
She is doing pretty well these days. I have been there 3 days this week and will again today shortly. I can assure you that I won’t be shaking her. I just wish it was that simple.
