I like to think that I don't but when I sit and think deeply about it, often, I put my own desires ahead of theirs. I'm the ultimate selfish person.
The last few days I've been thinking about this, and this morning, as we bury Krissy - her family devastated - I can't even try to empathize. It would cause me to reach into a depth of myself that I just can make myself go to.
I've been kind of surprised at my lack of emotion - or lack of outward emotion you could say. But, when I think about the tragedy of it all, losing a young mother, I just can't go there.
I think I'll hug my family a little tighter today. Play a little harder. You should do the same.
