My middle son is getting married. This past weekend they had an engagement soiree with immediate family and closest friends attending. It was a joy to help with the preparation and planning this wonderful event. I'm so excited to be gaining a daughter-in-love. My heart smiled all weekend.
Now that the festivities are over, I've slumped. The love between my son and his fiance have reminded me of the love I've lost. Joy. Sadness. Guilt. The emotions jangle inside my head and heart.
God has left me here for a purpose. My head knows that; my heart is 10 beats behind. But my heart is beating. I am here. Giving up is not an option.
