We are buried beneath the weight of information, which is being confused with knowledge; quantity is being confused with abundance and wealth with happiness.

I have been having what I call “brain aches”.  It feels like some wires are not connected properly.  I can be listening to something but if you asked me what was said I would tell you I haven’t a clue.

My usual excuse would be blame it on the medications.  But I wake up and still feel like this.  I have to think what tv programs did I listen to the night before, I just cannot remember.

I find myself frustrated, cranky, and all that goes with those two things.  I truly cannot put my finger on the issue, yet I know somewhere deep there must be one.

If I feel this way, what does the person who has not been able to work at his/her job feel like.  They have to put food on the table, keep a roof above their heads.  Their level frustration must be at eleven!

Then their are all those who are grieving but cannot give their loved one a proper home going.  How must they feel?  I can imagine the utter hopelessness they must be experiencing through everything.  It truly breaks this heart of mine.

So, this fifty-eight year old former pastor prays that there will be a relief in the near future soon!

      Yes you are correct!
      I guess I wasn’t really thinking about that.

    Omgoodness! I’ve been blessed so far and I’m so thankful. But I cannot imagine what so many others are going through. Honestly, I don’t know how I’d handle it. It’s bad enough when you can’t feed your family. But to lose a spouse, mother, a child, a father, grandmother, etc and not be able to be with them when they go and give them a proper service? That would be the worst and do you ever get over something so terrible!

    God bless you for posting this! You just forced me to imagine things that are terrible to imagine but that’s how we hand empathy. I hope youre doing well and staying safe.

      Cherie, I have always thought if I am feeling a certain way, then there probably others feeling the exact same way.
      That is the thought behind how and why I write the way I do.
