wasted time, Summertime, and Jacob’s time

I woke up this morning, alone and sweaty in my bed.

I woke up this morning.

I looked out into the back yard and wondered how Summer’s morning was. The strength it must take to get out of bed. I’ve wasted so much time being angry. So much time waiting for my life to get where it needs to go, so I can stop being angry and start being happy.

Jacob got crushed by a car and died. Summer must wake up every day for the rest of her life with that knowledge.

I woke up this morning.

That’s good enough.

Time to find my happy.
