I am feeling very heavy hearted and at the same time so helpless.
My daughter is sad as is at least one granddaughter and possibly one or two more of my granddaughters as well.
Events overtake people, events they have little control over but nevertheless these events bring a lasting sadness with them.
We cannot get into other people's mind to see exactly what is going on in there and no matter how many words we may utter we are never sure that what we say is what they want to hear. Sometimes one just keeps quiet for fear of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time.
I know I am a good listener and am always willing to listen, without comment if need be, but perhaps I am now just little to old for people to bother talking to me. Perhaps nobody would think I would understand any more.
All I know is I am here should anyone need me and meanwhile I sit here feeling hopeless and unable to help....as much as I would like to do so.
