Not tired enough, I guess ...

Ok, so I'm the one who said that I'm tired of teaching "this lesson" - the lesson of life after the death of a parent. But I guess it's possible that I'm not quite tired enough ...

I signed up for "Voices" ... yes, I'll be reading my poem aloud in the high school auditorium.

Every time I get tired of teaching this lesson, I remember how important it is to teach ...



  • I get tired of showing people there is life and love after losing a good partner, too.

    But they need to know that.

    Two years and a day after I lost the mate, one of his very best friends died, leaving a wife older than me and his other family looking to us to see how we were still standing and living.

    She and I have talked a lot this year. I can help her just by being here and showing that I am getting on with life. It lets her hope she can get past the hard grief, too.

    I miss having a good man to lean on. I like knowing you will grow to be one a woman can do that with someday. I see the caring heart of you.
