One Year = One Lifetime
A lot can happen in a year. Just ask me. But if you would like to know more, ask someone else. Many more have suffered beyond what I have ever experienced. I am lucky. I wrote a lot about being lucky last year. One year ago today [link], I wrote with almost a humorous spirit. For the next month, there was no laughter coming from me. Why do we look back and smile, even when the memories are bad? This is not the case for me. I don't think a day has gone by in the past 365 days where I haven't thought about that whore Katrina and what she took from me. I'm glad God's in control because I would lose my mind if He wasn't. I still hurt and cry, and I didn't lose one thing. Think about those who lost some, or all. I am only concerned because I was affected and effected (one of the only times I can be both I suppose). Instances like hurricanes teach me to hurt and mourn with others; to get beyond my feeble attempts at being self-centered. This is it. I don't know what this next year holds for me. But I sure hope is resembles very little of last year.
