There are times when it feels like I am typing the same things on my friends’ Facebook statuses.
Will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
My deepest condolences to you and your family.
Thinking of you.
I’ve been writing a lot of these kinds of sentiments. To a childhood friend, who just jetted from one coast to another to say a final goodbye to her father. To another, remembering a sad anniversary and to another, wishing to turn back the clock as she said goodbye to her mother. To a blogging friend, who goes in for a 6 month cancer scan tomorrow. To another, asking if his father was all right in reply to a vague posting.
And that’s not to mention others, the ones with the job losses and precarious family situations and issues concerning children and loved ones. I can’t keep up; I fear forgetting someone.
In this summer of record drought, it seems at times to be too much of the wrong kind of rain for too many.
