My Best Friend

My heart shreds when I see the picture. His eyes hollow. Expression blank. Mine begins to mirror his, then I crumble-all tears and snot. No more chemo, no more chances.  I search his face for comfort, but I should be the one to offer it.  Hasn’t He heard my prayers?

About startingwritenow

I am a mom, a wife, a sister, daughter and friend. I love a good laugh, a house full of people, a great craft beer (or two), a bold red wine and a book or movie of any kind.-good, bad or otherwise! I believe in learning something everyday, in growing and changing every chance you get. I don't fit in every circle, I don't color inside the lines, but I have learned to love my messy life!
