Things left undone...

This photo is from our back yard in Alabama, 1991.

I suppose there will always be an empty spot in my heart, one that was originally intended to receive things my family was supposed to fill.  I will never know what might have been.

It is difficult to imagine anything more painful to endure.

I have been through all kinds of pain in recent years.  A heart attack is nothing compared to the years of heartache and regret.  The most painful physical suffering seems little enough to compare.  Yet I cannot spare myself this feeling.  Apparently it is necessary to remind me that there are things left yet undone.

I only hope I am worthy enough to do the job, in the time that is left me.
