the bags are in the closet…for now

I can never forget what it feels like,

I forgot how a thought can steal your breath away.

I forgot what shower tiles look like through a cloud of tears.

I forgot the strength it takes to pick up your phone when you’ve seen who it is.

The doctor made a call that took me right back in time.

Before strokes. Gergia. Writibg. Baldness. Sickness.

I went there.

I packed my bags and went there.

I went there and took pictures.

THERE had freakin’ map.

Then i got the call.

Everything was OK.

I came back from there.

I put the bags away in the closet. I didn’t unpack them. I may not for a while.

I forgot how fast i can remember.

    Yikes! I could just feel that cold hand grabbing your tummy right along with you. The five-year count down continues, for your family and those who have grown to love you and your family. People that I’ve never physically met, but hope to someday, especially your kids!
    Much Love from the Minx
    P.S. Huzzah for GOOD NEWS from the doctor!!!
