Knocked the Wind Out of Me…

Do you ever have one of those days, one of those watershed moments that literally knocks the wind out of you?

The knowledge of an event so egregious, so overwhelmingly shocking, you are stunned. Can’t breathe. Hurt beyond what you thought was possible to hurt.

And to think it could be worse, but the event in and of itself is enough. Enough to take your breath away. Tears flow down your face. Hugs, kisses, and warm embrace for the loved one affected.

This has been what’s been going on behind the scenes in my life the last few weeks.


I’ve closed this post to comments as I’m not prepared to discuss this, but have had this as a draft for weeks and needed to get it off my chest. A touchstone to recognize, note, take stock of emotions, and begin healing.
