Currie's Gratitude 10 November 2014

Lots of things can be fixed. Things can be fixed. But many times, relationships between people cannot be fixed, because they should not be fixed. You're aboard a ship setting sail, and the other person has joined the inland circus, or is boarding a different ship, and you just can't be with each other anymore. Because you shouldn't be.    [C. JoyBell C.]

Lately it feels to me like I am in a growth spurt. Strange, but I feel it so I am going to call it by a name I know. I think I can “fix” things that have been broken or even just set aside, but when I come to the task I haven’t the tools or the first clue HOW to “fix” whatever it is.

Today is my father’s 89th birthday. I wish, more than anything, sometimes, that I could just hear his voice, have him “in my corner,” and know he is with me. But he and I aren’t big fans of the telephone, and a visit isn’t in the cards, so I will likely have to settle for phoning him and leaving my good wishes in a voicemail.

The idea that mayBE our relationship is just fine as it is, [and as it is NOT] well, I am finding some peace in that.


I love you, Currie

Sometimes we just have to leave the scab in place and other times we have to rip the bandage off. The hard part is knowing which way to go but it's always good to go with your gut….
