Sometimes …

Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.
Dr. Seuss

Sometimes the universe doesn’t give you what you want, what you need or even what you deserve.

Sometimes time doesn’t heal.

Sometimes your happiest memories are also the most tender.

Sometimes everything doesn’t happen for a reason.

Sometimes one door closes, and no other doors open instead.

Sometimes crime pays … handsomely.

Sometimes you do everything right, check all the boxes, cross all the i’s, dot all the t’s, and the promotion, job offer or marriage proposal gets offered to someone else.

Sometimes the universe does give you more than you can handle.

Sometimes it is too late.

Sometimes the best team doesn’t win.

Sometimes there is no one there to catch you when you fall.

Sometimes there is nothing left to say.

Sometimes you aren’t braver than you believed or stronger than you thought.

Sometimes karma isn’t a bitch, and she doesn’t visit the people who most deserve to see her.

Sometimes it is impossible.

Sometimes you are too old.

Sometimes you can’t do the things you think you can’t do.

Sometimes it is too late to be who you might have been.

Sometimes nothing you say or do makes a difference.

Sometimes there is nothing left to try.

Sometimes older doesn’t mean wiser.

Sometimes everything doesn’t fall into place.

Sometimes the people who have suffered the most will continue to suffer … over and over and over again.

Sometimes your hardest moments become your greatest teachers.

Sometimes listening is more powerful than anything you could say.

Sometimes the simplest of gestures are the most meaningful, allowing you to keep going long after you thought you couldn’t.

Sometimes, in spite of everything, you climb out of bed and find a way to face the day.

Sometimes, just surviving is more than enough.

    The Dr. Seuss quote just struck me deeply. Well all of these thoughts on Sometimes did but … memories.

    I wrote a blog post “The Caregiver of Memories” Which is what we do. Or I do for Donna. Once I’m gone we both will evaporate so while I can and have the will I will be her caregiver. Where my strongest memories reside.

    This post was about being her caregiver. “If I was to write the first sentence of the first page of our caregiving story it would go like this, “Donna you have six months to live.”

    “Call me a caregiver giving care. Each task creates a memory that I can run my fingers over like a bas relief forever.”

      I love that phrase .. “The Caregiver of Memories.” So true. After we care for them, we tend the memories once they’re gone. I also love the visual of being able to run your fingers over each memory. Just beautiful 💙
