The gas light is now flashing
Sometimes it isn’t about what we want, but what needs to happen. And no matter how well-prepared we think we are for it, when it really does happen, we realize that all the preparation and pep-talking we put ourselves through had been of absolutely no use at all. And then we fear that we may wake up two weeks after it happens and realize that we can’t reverse it, and we’ll have to live with it for the rest of our lives.
So much to say, so much to do, and so little time to say and do it all.
