My Heart is so Heavy

Screen Shot 2019-03-19 at 9.50.32 PMAs I’m sitting at my daughter’s sports awards, listening to all the applause in the audience, my heart is aching so very much.  Why, why, why didn’t I leave my phone off and just be present in the moment?

If I had just left my phone off, I wouldn’t have such a pit in my stomach.

If I had just left my phone off, I wouldn’t be fighting back so many tears.

If I had just left my phone off, I wouldn’t have chills all over my body.

If I had just left my phone off, I wouldn’t be consumed with such grief.

While claps are all around me, I can’t help but wonder if the people sitting on my left, and sitting on my right left their phones off…

Does anyone else here know what I wish I didn’t know?

Rest in peace Terry!
