The last time

We never know when it will be the last time.  The last time we get up at 2 a.m. to feed a baby.  The last time we give our child a bath.  The last time we read a book together.  The last time we tie their skates before a hockey game.  The last time we have tea with a special person.  The last time we travel or walk or run or remember.

In life, it seems that often the highest highs are intertwined with the lowest lows. We share our successes with friends, neighbours and social media networks.  But we often face our lows alone.  We’re embarrassed.  We don’t know where to start.  We don’t want to be judged. Continue reading
