I AM Empty Without You

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn’t supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it’s harder every time. You’ll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You’ll fight with your best friend. You’ll blame a new love for things an old one did. You’ll cry because time is passing too fast, and you’ll eventually lose someone you love.” ~Author Unknown~

Last few weeks has been a whirlwind of ups and downs…..When I drew on my photo file to look for a subject coming across this photo I took a few days after my mom’s funeral….it fit the bill for all the unrest of late…Aunts and Uncles and Cousins have made my children’s life so awful and painful …and yes my children ( grown adults by the way) acted and react in ways that have upset not only others but themselves….bridges were burnt and are burning as a result ….

At first I wanted to fix everything then I remembered why this photo meant so much to me …..when I sat the photo up I was trying to capture the issue at hand …the issue was about control no more ..the last of what had held the family together was gone and it was empty and none of us left could fill that spot …. for years the chair and the spot at the end of the table belonged to my step father (who was the only father that cared about any of us ) it was his chair ….his place and his voice that came from that end of the table ….then at his passing our mom moved into the chair … the spot …it was how it was …every night up to the day she became bed ridden she was in that spot …law was passed there,love was there…..many a wise word were spoken from there……knowing there was never going to be another to fill the spot …..nor the chair…it needed to be recorded in photo …the above quote says it all along with the photo …I AM EMPTY WITHOUT YOU …..
