Sometimes Life Gets In The Way

This life seems like we are in the middle of a bridge. We cannot see what is ahead. We glance back and it is as cloudy as before us.

I like to think I’ve got heavy boots. I feel like so much has happened to me in the past, but then I look around. I see the people around me dealing with death, health, sadness abounding. I do not have the heavy boots.

My favorite Chuck who always got a “Chuck Special,” consisting of six shots in hot water with light ice. He liked his Americano strong. Chuck is back in Michigan. Reunited with his wife. I am sure he is overjoyed to be home with his true love.

My Earl Grey Tea, and a Fritter is somewhere south. Gary, he called himself, has moved on too. He would laugh with me abotu how desperately he needed a hair cut. I miss that white washed hair, and warm smile.
The girls are all a little melancholy. Stephanie, our dear friend leaves us this week.

I see the joy.
