I Should've Been There

Monday, July 19, 2021

I should've been there taking care of him, but I'm not. We're thousands of kilometers apart, and this pandemic makes it impossible for us to be together. It breaks my heart to know that he's all alone, battling that disease. He's in pain, and I can't do anything about it. I can't offer him baseless optimism, rash encouragement, or empty prayers. I don't believe in those and neither does he. Making him feel that he is loved, that he is cherished, seems like the only thing I can do. But is that enough? We take comfort in reliving our many happy moments, those memories that will sustain us when all else is gone.
