sunny side up

one of those chain mails long ago
It helped to bring into perspective this long month, of late nights and crazy happenings. Then, to realise things go beyond myself. That friends are lost and confused in relationships, old grandmothers abandoned because they have no money to give anymore, and some parents part easily with the little they have just so that their children can be comfortable. And we learn a little more after we lose something.
"...I was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes
what or who we love isnt there any more.
Sometimes, what we care about most,
gets all used up,
And goes away, never to return.
So, while we have it
it's best we love it,
And care for it.
And fix it when it's broken
And heal it when it's sick.
This is true. For marriage
And old cars...
And children with
Bad report cards.....
And dogs with bad hips...
And aging Parents.....
We keep them because they are worth it
because we are worth it.
Some things we keep.
Like a best friend that moved away
or a classmate we grew up with.
There are just some things that make life important,
Like people we know who are special.....
And so, we keep them close."
