I've been scarce for a while due to a life- changing event. I nursed my significant- other of ten-years back to health recently, only to have her call it quits and ghost me for the last two months. It's a blessing in disguise, as my recent retirement and plans to relocate to a rural area seemed to be less-and-less appealing to her as time grew closer for it to become reality. Life sometimes throws has us a curve. Sometimes it kicks us in the nads. There were some very dark days, but every sunrise looks more promising. I'll be fine. God is good!
