5 Minute Friday: LonelyAugust 9, 2013 at 6:13 pm | Posted in 5 Minute Friday, Alone | 7 Comments
It’s Friday! I’ve been gone most of the week and haven’t blogged much but here I am!
To learn how to play along, please check out Lisa Jo Baker’s Blog, Tales from a Gypsy Mama.This week’s word is: LONELY
Oh, my, yes, I know what this word means. There have been so many times that I have felt lonely. Even in a crowd of people, it can hit me. I’m lonely.
When I’m separated from my beloved, I am so lonely. This past week, I had to get a shingles vaccination; because he’s on chemo, and because the virus is live, I could not be with him for fear that he could contract shingles.
I spent the previous three days with my mom and could not be at home with my beloved. We spoke on the phone, two or three times a day, most definitely in the morning (good morning!) and at night (good night, sweet dreams!). I was so glad to be home today. Things are right in my universe again.
I try not to project, not to think about the future but sometimes it’s impossible….living daily with his cancer and the prognosis….every day is a blessing and a gift and we try to not take each other for granted. Whatever will I do without him? How will I be able to go on? Will I be able to?
Yes and it will be because God will be with me, carrying me along. I think of the “FOOTPRINTS” poem by Mary Stevenson. I know that whenever I am alone, God will carry me.
No matter how lonely I am, I’m never alone.
