Dark Musing

So had a kinda rough day the other day (not as bad as some of them have been in the past, don't worry) and found myself wondering, on the drive home, if we're not all children at heart just waiting to die so we can be reunited with those we love who have moved on. I had about decided to post this thought when I got home, but by the time I actually got online, I moved away from it and didn't want to revisit the depression.

But since then, I've come across a quote (that came in my Daily Ray of Hope, no less) and a line of Scripture posted with a lovely CLex story that made me reconsider that thought.

"I think we dream so we don't have to be apart for so long. If we're in each other's dreams, we can be together all the time."

~ A.A. Milne (Yes, that's the author of Winnie the Pooh, giving further credit to those of us who revisit that time and give the characters darker stories.)

"And I declared that the dead, who had already died, are happier than the living, who are still alive"

- Ecclesiastes 4:2

Love y'all, my friends. Y'all keep me going sometimes even when I don't say something. HUGS to you all!

Gods, do I understand that feeling. I'm sorry for whatever you are going through.

Thank you for the quote and scripture. I've been thinking along the latter a lot with all the deaths last year. The former reminds me of something Scully said in the X-Files - that the dead hear us when we think about them. It's a sentiment that gives me a lot of comfort.

Be well, HUGS

Since September '15, I have lost my Father, my Great Aunt, and a cousin who doesn't really count because I never got to meet her. As well as several babies along the way.

To make matters worse, my Great Aunt was the next to last survivor of her generation. She had buried her parents, all her brother and sisters, all her furbabies and actual children, even the only one who lived beyond infancy, and her husband, and all of her husband's brothers and sisters except one. She was the last of her kind. And I have every reason to believe I will be the last of my kind.

Some days are better than others, but that's the case for all of us, I guess.

I'm so sorry for all your losses. That is too much. Thank you for sharing with me. It sounds like you have a long road of grieving ahead of you, and I know how hard that is. I hope you have good support. I'm hear if you ever want to talk.

HUGS

And thank you for this, too. And ditto. I know I haven't exactly been around much for pms lately, but I plan on improving this little habit of reading them all but taking forever to answer. I want to be there for my friends and appreciate so very, very much y'all all being here for me. ***HUGS***
