So, tonight I opened up a box searching for photos of someone that was part of my life so many years ago. Often it seems like yesterday. But as I was watching so many posts on instagram for World AIDS Day I thought it important to commemorate the importance of this person in my life. Funny thing was, that’s not how it turned out.
Sometimes we want things in a certain way. But as we start to look, that’s not things unfold. We try to force things to looks like we want them to and the only thing it serves…is suffering and struggle.
As I searched for photos in a box, so many others turned up. So many images of joy and laughing. On this solemn day, it’s as important to remember the living as well as the those who have lost their lives to HIV and AIDS.
The photos I share are from years ago…my joyous nieces and nephews. My bawdy Mom.
Sending all of you…love.
