Most of the Summer is gone. Kids are back to school, nights are cooler and the leaves are beginning to turn. The Summer is gone and I missed it. Between the necessary surgery at the beginning of the Summer and then my father's illness I have had no summer. I am mostly living with my father now. He can't manage on his own like he could at the beginning of the Summer. He realizes it and I am just wondering about what effect it will have on my life. It is clear to me that I cannot abandon him and that he needs my support. My life will change though. I am rather far away from my life and my friends, not extremely far, but far enough to be difficult.
Today is the 10th anniversary of 9/1/01. For many people that event changed their lives for ever so my situation isn't unique. Things happen in life all the time that change the course of events. In the scale of things my changes are small, but they are important to me.
Remember those whose lives changed so much 10 years ago, those who lost their lives then and since and their families. I will live through my changes and make the best.
