I had a conversation with my mom who lost one of her brothers about 20 years ago and how it’s affected her ever since.
I told her I don’t know what i’d do if something happened to one of my brothers (I have four older bros) and it actually gets me emotional thinking about that being so one day. I actually had to cut the convo because it was really hard for me to fathom such a thing.
It just so happens that I was going to visit my brother and his newborn son tomorrow, when I get a call from him in the wee hours of the morning today telling me that his apartment went up in flames.
Its was surreal hearing that. I’m just glad that he and his family got out A-OK. It’s funny how life is sometimes, I was telling my mother last night as we were talking that it’s amazing having so many people to love in your life, but terribly frightening at the same time because somewhere, something can happen to them in a blink.
I’ve been getting these sorts of inklings lately. It’s interesting.
before tumblr i never knew there were so many things to be offended about
