Life is strange – sometimes calm and composed, sometimes giving us long and short doses of happiness and sadness and sometimes taking us by complete surprise – turning our world upside down in a split second.
At one time, someone’s arriving into the world and at the same time someone’s departing – celebrations at one end, mourning at the other. Arriving is always a happy occasion, departing rarely. But what has come, has to go – just wish the going is never so soon, for anyone.
“Human beings are remarkable – at what we can learn to live with. If we couldn’t get strong from what we lose, and what we miss, and what we want and can’t have…then we couldn’t ever get strong enough, could we? What else makes us strong?” - John Irving
