Remember: Inspirational Quote for 4.21.16

“Isn’t it weird,” I said, “the way you remember things, when someone’s gone?”

What do you mean?”

I ate another piece of waffle. “When my dad first died, all I could think about was that day. It’s taken me so long to be able to think back to before that, to everything else.”

Wes was nodding before I even finished. “It’s even worse when someone’s sick for a long time,” he said. “Youwendymart2 forget they were ever healthy, ever okay. It’s like there was never a time when you weren’t waiting for something awful to happen.”

But there was,” I said. “I mean, it’s only been in the last few months that I’ve started remembering all this good stuff, funny stuff about my dad. I can’t believe I ever forgot it in the first place.”

You didn’t forget,” Wes said, taking a sip of his water. “You just couldn’t remember right then. But now you’re ready to, so you can.”

I thought about this as I finished off my waffle.”
