The Ramblings of a Former Caregiver
That is Frank's favorite expression....it is what it is....Hugs Paula
It was Richard's too, Wendy!!!!!
Good thing to remember, and so difficult to, when times are rough.
You have that right Jennifer!
I say this often in reference to a family member whom I love dearly. Accepting the way it is has been hardest when you wish it wasn't the way it is. Yes, the world keeps turning and we all move forward doing the our best to make the way it is the best it can be. Sue at CollectInTexas Gal
Yes, it is. Accepting it is one thing. But when it is hard, it is hard
I've only heard that expression uttered (at work) in sarcasm. This, more peaceful - but heartbreaking in its finality. Hugs!
That is how the character of the book meant it. Beautiful but heartbreaking!!
Interesting quote; the world does keep turning; it just turns differently I think after we experience loss and grief.betty
I'm glad you get it Betty!
Beautiful poster and an interesting message. I've heard it used sarcastically more often...but not the full quote. Reading this multiple times, it's good food for thought.
This is not at all a sarcastic quote Sandy. He is telling her he is dying and that she will be okay. That the world will keep turning. And he is right. It does. And she will be okay!!
So true but also so hard. When my mom was in the hospital earlier this year on life support ( she's ok now), I remember thinking that the world was still moving and life continued around me while my world was crumbling.
I have said that to myself a whole lot this past year Holli. I often wonder how can the sun keep shining when my 'sun' has gone out!
The world does keep turning, doesn't it? And here's something for you to think about. When you get to the end of your first year of grieiving the loss of Richard, remmeber that the year also included one full trip around the sun that has kept shining since his passing. On the darkest winter nights, Goodnight and I have measured our trips around the sun since her mom's death by how many times we've greeted the constellation Orion in the sky above her window.
Yes it does!! And thank you for that analogy. It is peaceful to think of it that way
Thank you so much for telling me you thought of it as peaceful. It was my intent. Goodnight needed so much peace when I thought of trying to have her look at it that way. We are still partial to seeing Orion.
We each have to search out our way to find peace, I guess. I am still working on that
I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
