Sometimes you don’t realise what you’ve got till it’s gone. You spent all the time you had focusing on the superficial and not on what was important. You don’t notice when it’s all going wrong because you’re too self involved and when it begins to breakdown there’s nothing you can do. You just watch it collapse and feel helpless. He truly is the best of planners and you have to accept your destiny whether good or bad. It’s him I’m worried about, so small, and carefree. I hope he gets why this has to be and that it’s not his fault.
When God gives you lemons, you’ve got to make lemonade.
