Once upon a time in a land far far away (Oklahoma) life was simple.
It seems like a lifetime ago that my brother, sister and I use to swing on that fence like we didn't have a care in the world. It seems like an eternity ago that we took turns pushing each other back and forth and now life choices, luck and circumstances have led us down different paths. Some of us hurting, some of us thriving and some us barely holding on by a thread but still swinging. It's hard to watch our siblings suffer through life drowning while we're unsure of what to do to help them. A lifeline is not always possible. It's heartbreaking to watch anyone fall over and over again but it's heart crushing when it's your brother.
Thank God for brothers and sisters, thank God for memories and thank God for free will.
