To the hospital…
Yesterday as you may or may not know was Father’s Day. I was planning to go home to my parents for a visit and of course, I also had planned to bake a cake. For some reason the cake idea never got off the ground. I did see my mother though, and my brother too. However, it was not in as happy a circumstance as I figured. My father is in the hospital, he has been there since Saturday night. He has… actually I’m not quite sure what he has, I do know, it’s not looking good as he has been unable to come back home; and won’t be home for another week or so. Point being, it’s not quite as cheery visiting one’s parents in the hospital. He looked happy though, which is odd for being in a hospital room. None the less if you can smile the place matters not as much as the company in it.
I was thinking if I should be falling apart about now, but if I’m thinking about it, then I’m sure I can keep in one piece. It’s amazing how much things change in a day to day basis.
We are almost half way done with this year and already I seen and lived through enough gray days to last me a lifetime. Year of the Dragon after all, they are never easy.
This song always brings a smile to my face, regardless how many shades of gray I see, the sun shines eventually.
