Reflections of a survivor
Six years ago, she would have been 5.
Today she asked me to stop looking at her and seeing her dad. I tried and then I cried for the injustice of it all.
I have been looking past the 11 year old who has to live without her Dad.I will have coffee with her Mother,I will have no words of comfort,And I will cry some more when she says she is glad I'm alive.(cancer,I am no way associated with the tradgedy of 9/11...I just avoided this family for a long time,due to my own selfish discomfort)So for today I will not be as happy as usual...Cause it makes these friends of mine uncomfortable...I will spend time in meditation,asking my God that lives be touched with a spirit of peace and healing...and that I may be more mindful of every individuals feelings even, especially when
it is appropriate,to be thoughtful...
