Love is all there is……. It takes many shapes and forms and morphs and evolves, but it is all there is.
I was just about to write you and Dad to check in, I heard about what happened and have been following it via the Woodson Alumni Facebook page (and I will admit I am tempted to fly out just for Wednesday to attend that meeting).
Dear Megs,THANK YOU so much for your recent e-mail. I really needed it though I do wish I was there to listen and just try to be there for you.. to “Mom” you… I know that you have really hit a rough spot and are still grieving the loss of a very cherished relationship.. The fact that other aspects of your life are also not secure truly affects your balance. I wish there was something I could say or do to ease your suffering and your dis-connect.. and to assure you that you WILL find your path and be able to look back and realize you had to go thru all this turmoil to reach your calling… Do remember, we are a family of late bloomers…. on both sides…. Your Dad took a while to get his bearings as did your Uncle Rock….Your family IS there for you as are so many people who’s lives you have touched and aren’t necessarily aware of.Current Events:There have been TWO suicides involving Woodson students this past week. One lived on Clara Barton. I pass by his house each day when I go on my morning walk… I have smiled and exchanged pleasantries with him and his sister when they have been outside. It is so tragic and it shakes you to your core. I can not imagine the devastation the family is experiencing along with his fellow students and WTW community. He was well liked, an excellent student, and a respected athlete. The second suicide which took place several days later was eerily similar and unexplained…. Well thought of, good student and athlete. It is beyond tragic and is so scary. I can only assume that depression played a major part in this whether diagnosed or not…And Megan I know this is something you deal with and it concerns me enormously. I realize that running and working out help but I question whether it is enough and am concerned that you are not availing yourself to what might possibly be helpful. Someone to talk to… medication… I don’t know, but I DON”T WANT TO LOSE YOU…. You are MY HEART….You are so precious and SPECIAL and SO LOVED…. As your Mom, I would give anything to make it “all better”…. to have words of wisdom to impart… to ease your sorrow… But, all I can do is let you know that you are a true gift and that I continually pray for strength and guidance for you so that you will find your way and achieve the happiness you so deserve….I LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH,MomXOXO
