I wasn’t going to share this little personal nugget. I was going to keep it just for myself but after reading so many of your comments on the ‘transparent people‘ post I thought it might bring you some comfort too.
A few weeks ago, right before Parker passed, I was driving home from the vet hospital for the 3rd time that weekend when P texted me and said to listen to Coldplay’s ‘The Scientist’. I’ve heard the song hundreds of times but he said to listen to the words this time. He said it’s a good soundtrack for the rough patch we’ve had the last few months. Pets passing, work stress, 2 kids with pneumonia which inevitably equals a strained marriage…
I love him. I listen to this song probably once a week now & it always, always, makes me feel better.
“Nobody said it was easy. It’s such a shame for us to part. Nobody said it was easy, no one ever said it would be this hard.
I’m going back to the start.”
If you’re looking for something a little less sappy today then check out my post on the Hot 99.5 blog, it’s some charming pictures of Sophie Monster’s determination to eat Play-Doh and a tutorial for how to make your own all-natural play-dough at home. It doesn’t get any more wholesome than that now does it?
