Today’s Prompt word is {Time}  – link up below under my writing ….

 

-Start-

Yesterday I was going up my stairs and I stopped and looked at the photo of my Nana that hangs on the wall under a cross, and a sad smile came over me.

Its funny how we pass by something everyday and we don’t notice it because we pass it every day. I must at least pass that photos 20 times a day if not more, so what made me stop and look that time?

My Nana has been gone 17 years now. Hard to believe. They say ‘time heals all wounds”, I am not quite sure if I believe that, I just think time allows us to deal with how bad the hurt stings, because when I stopped long enough to look at that photo, I felt the miss all over again; the longing to sit at the kitchen table and talk with my Nana like I used to.

Time allows us to accept what is real. Time allows us to heal how we handle the losses in our lives, that is what I believe time does for us, it never truly heals the wounds.

Time and time again I have passed that photo and for some reason I stopped in my tracks to look at that photo of my Nana smiling, and I believe it was a “spiritual moment” to where like has us so busy, that we need to stop and look at the things we still heal from.

I believe that its in those moments that we are reminded of those painful losses that we continue to allow ourselves to accept the pain as what it is “sadness that I miss her still even 17 years later”.

Its hard to believe she has been gone 17 years. I miss her, and her funny quirky ways! I miss hearing about her “catholic rituals and prayers” and going to Bingo with her and seeing her get so mad when she would be one number away from big pot! She was truly a remarkable woman!

I am glad that time allowed me to stop for a moment yesterday and just remember! her smile reminded me that even though 17 years passed, she is still in my heart just like it was yesterday.

-END-

  1. Yes, I think there’s a lot of wisdom in that – time allowing us to accept things, rather than healing. I’m glad you have such lovely memories of your nana to look back on. My nan used to tell me lots of stories about her younger days too.

  2. Hi Karen,
    I like this new project of yours. It’s nice to see a bunch of people joining in. I hope I have more energy soon to participate. I’ve each one of your TT’s since you started and it got me thinking of each of the topics. But I haven’t had the time or energy yet to write. So I just wanted to let you know that I’m reading and enjoying and being inspired by what you are doing.

    Love,
    Gel
