I think ahead and wistfulness bursts happy bubbles and the constraints of time, accompanied by guilt for wasting it wishing her well.
I think back and find it difficult to reconstruct that period without contaminating the memories with over-sized regret that gushes into now.
My heart lurches in circles looking for a way out of those thoughts.
So I think about right now, and am grateful for beauty in another ordinary day.

There's a new way to help BDSRA, through June 15th.  Check the "Current Fundraisers" tab for details.

Love her smile! And the chain of reactions of smiles in our household upon looking at this photo of Celia!

A wise person once said the present is a gift. Relish in it.
