Truth #1

I am borrowing a little bit from my friend Karen.  She has committed to 30 Days of Truth, now I don't think I can commit to blogging every day for a month, but I would like to borrow from her list the ones that pique my interest the most.  I find it's a good resource for me to stimulate some blog posts, ideas and whatnot.  So here goes:

Truth #1 :  Something you hope you never have to do. 

This one was hard for me to decide.  There are two that come to the forefront of my mind almost immediately.  One a little more strongly than the other but both equally terrible situations.  I'll mention them both but only give full details about the one. 

a)  Bury my son.

b) Pull the plug on my mom or dad (or both).

Just the mere thought of having to say goodbye forever to my son is enough to make me choke up and well up with tears.   I've said this before and I'll say it again that it is something that I would never ever recover from.  I'm certain that no parent who has ever had to do it, has recovered.  It is the singularly most devastating thing that could happen to me.  I know, I just know that I would want to die too.  How do you put a billion pieces of broken heart back together?  How do you live without the person you knew that you always wanted and fell in love with the instant you knew was there with you?  The person you would die for, kill for, beg, borrow, steal for.  That is the truth.
