I recently became a lifetime member of the “I’ve lost a child club.”

Wasn’t planning on joining. Didn’t receive a flyer in the mail inviting me. It was a surprise.

My child left in September yet now it’s July and I feel frozen in time. Haven’t yet mastered the past tense.

Unbalanced is my new normal. I’ve lost my bookends, my mother and my daughter.

Now I’m just killin' time.
