Sometimes my mind is on something else for a while.............then I am snapped back to reality.............and I think "Has enough time passed yet? Is this over now?"
Most of the time when we are experiencing something difficult, there is a time-period associated with it where we must endure the stress...and then things go back to "normal". But there is no time-period for this. It is forever. There is no going back.
My heart aches to think of never seeing Joe again....and to think that my marriage to him is over.
