gut punch

February 5, 2015 — Leave a comment

this afternoon i got a one line text from my wife

a friend we hadn’t seen in a while passed away

even though i hadn’t seen him in years, it was a gut punch

in fact, Karen and i were talking about friends recently and he was part of that conversation. great memories.

but, things change. people lose touch, move, all kinds of other things

that’s life

but change…life…doesn’t lessen the punch to the gut when a friend passes

i have an assurance that i will see him again

but that assurance doesn’t remove the punch to the gut

though it should
