My wife just died a month ago. My world changed instantly. It was sudden, there was no warning. Why did my life change so drastically and everyone else has the privilege of just simply going on?
I recently read that life is like an on-going conversation that began long before we arrived. After we have been here for a while we begin to think that we understand the thread and so we enter the conversation. Then suddenly, it's time for us to go, and we do - but the conversation simply continues without us. That didn't help.
The brightest star in my universe is gone. My compass has disappeared. The better part of me has left. The rest of the world should mourn her just as I do and the fact that they don't just ticks me off.
