The sun didn’t come out today. It was cold. There was a chill in the air. Nothing great to lift my spirits.
It was a gloomy day. I guess its the cumulative affect of the events of the past week. Ma underwent surgery to have her uterus removed. She’s fine, but still in the hospital. But then my grandfather passed away 2 days back.
I wasn’t very close to him. But I felt bad because when I got the news, it didn’t strike me at all. I didn’t even feel very sad. And that made me feel guilty, and then sad. It was expected for a while, he was old and unwell. But after all is said and done, one more life has been lost. My father and his brothers feel the loss, and I can relate to that. But I don’t feel a sense of personal loss, and that worries me.
Sometimes staying so far away from home scares me.
God bless him.
