Unrequited love, "phantom pain," anticipatory grief
describing my life in six words


  1. That sounds quite distressing. The single life for me.

    Another day in Amble Bay!

  2. Unrequited love is the most heart-shattering of experiences in life. It truly feels as if we are going to die from pain and sadness, and yet God is always faithful to bring new love into our lives if we do not close ourselves off to that possibility. I used to fear, I used to say never again. But had I never let myself consider that God may have other plans for me, I never would have met my beloved Papa Bear!

  3. I can't even imagine trying to do six-word-stories for the whole month of April. Good job. Keep it up!

  4. . . . and following those six agonizing words, lessons learned and life goes on.
