When we’re missing someone, we tend to bump into them everywhere.
“What do I miss?” Andrea asked. “Everything! I miss everything. Everything reminds me of Aaron.”
“It doesn’t matter where I go or what I do, he’s gone. And it keeps hitting me in the face over and over and over again,” she continued.
Life is full of surprises. Some are great. Some are good. Some are, well, not what we would want.
Some are painful, even tragic.
When we get surprised by a hit – a betrayal, affair, divorce, financial disaster, job loss, death – our hearts shudder. Emotion surges forth. Suddenly life is not business as usual.
