Pendulum

Tonight Linda and I went out and split dinner at a local Mexican restaurant (La Hacienda). I listened while she talked about treatment decisions she is wrestling without offering an opinion. This is a skill that I’m working on; answering questions and solving problems is, after all, what I do.

After detailing various aspects and options she stopped, looked at me and apologized saying ”we never planned on any of this…” I agreed that we hadn't, that the pendulum of had our life had swung further out than either of us ever expected.

Then again, the swing back should have a lot of good momentum. We've played the lottery, right? This is but an arc in our balance. The vow I said when we married bound us together for better or for worse, in sickness and in health. We have seen it all together: joy and great joy and heartache. My answer is still the same today: I do.

I originally captured this in my Google Drive Docs on May 21, 2017, as my site was offline; I happened across it today while looking for other things. Same as it ever was...
