I just put the Goose to bed, and the Missus and I are about to watch a movie, so this will be a quick update. I’d love for it to be fun and games, but this update wasn’t meant to be that.
If you have kids, hug them.
I had a terrible dream last night that I lost the Goose, and it was so real that when I woke up and realized it had been a dream, it was the best realization I’ve had in a long time. The idea of not hearing her giggle or the sweet things she says was terrifying and heartbreaking.
And I know this is what some people do have to live through in reality, not just in nightmares.
If you have kids, make sure they know you love them. And if you can’t hug them anymore, cherish them in your heart.
“Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” (Job 1:21)
