* * * * * * *Words, words that jumped out at me this morning as I scanned the document delivered in this morning's mail.
I've known since Tuesday.
I didn't know what to do with the knowledge then. I don't now.
I thought I would get drunk that night...I didn't.
I thought I would spill gallons of tears...I didn't.
I thought about driving to the Lake and finding my own kind of closure...I didn't.
I read through every page, even though I knew every word contained therein, I felt as if I had to.
Then, I took out the photo album that houses my wedding photos, as I leafed through the pages all I thought was, "We were so young."
I don't know what I expected, maybe that it would help...it didn't.
