By Chance, or By Fate - Today, I Am Grateful

Updated: Oct 18, 2021

September 21, 2021

I found these photographs last week while at my mother’s house, packing for my move.

I have never had the pleasure of seeing photographs from my mother & father’s wedding, not a single one. How strange is that?

The feeling that embodies gaining a glimpse into the past of which I have no understanding of - is a special kind of feeling.

It brings on pain, like an old wound being reopened. It always has, and it always will. But it also brings on a particular feeling of comfort, warmth … happiness.

The mere experience of being limited to learning about & knowing my father only through photographs & stories off lips of those who lived among him, is something I’ll never become accustomed to.

I choose to embrace all that comes with this experience, & the nature of it all. Sometimes I cry, sometimes I smile. Sometimes, I feel everything. Sometimes, I feel nothing at all.

Their anniversary is 4 days from today.

So, by chance, or by fate - today, I am grateful.
