when "for good" doesn't feel so good
I think that is why the phrase "for good" bothers me. She's gone now. I have no one to play with nor does my son. But, maybe the good comes in because the time to play is over. Now, I must work. Now, I must focus on getting things done. I must accomplish new goals and take care of business. She motivated me in so many ways. Even in her abscence, I see that she still motivates me. Some days, like today, I miss her like crazy. Wish I could call and just chat about daily stuff. But she's moved on to take care of her family. She loves her mother deeply and taking care of her involves most of her time and energy. She knew she would move back in a heart beat if anything ever happened to her mother. Thank God, nothing has happened to her mother but she felt the time was right to move back home. She also has a blooming soon-to-be teenage daughter that requires a lot of her time.
