The word prompts for this weeks Two Shoes Tuesday are sorrow and surprise.
When I was thinking about which word to use for my post It came to me that I
am often surprised by sorrow.
I expect to feel sorrow at times. It is part of life.
Loved ones get sick or hurt or…they die.
Loved pets get lost or…they die.
Ambitions and dreams are long in coming, they fade or…they die.
Friendships change or become difficult or…they die.
There are many things that cause sorrow and I am not surprised by them.
But sometimes long after a sorrowful time when I think the sadness and aching
are over the darkness descends and envelopes me and I am surprised.
Surprised that it still hurts and my heart still breaks.
Surprised by the depth of anguish.
Surprised by the tears.
