I am overwhelmed today with the amount of tragedy and suffering that has abounded recently. It seems as though everywhere I look people are losing loved ones and coping with struggles infinately greater than reason. It does not seem fair, and if there is a reason for it, some guiding force beyond this madness, it sure would be good to know what that is.
Sadly, we don't know. We leave it up to fate, God, Mother Nature, the stars, whatever you believe in (or don't believe in) to look out for our fragile beings, and the uncertainty of our paths prevails. One just never knows what can happen at any moment, and this truth scares the crap out of me. I try to find solace in the precious moments when the sun shines on my face, or my child sleeps in my arms to know that although life may be fragile and fleeting, we are blessed to be here together.
