Bent

 

Sometimes it is because of friends–more often it is my family, my children, my grandchildren. A memory can do it or a clouded eye, an averting of the face. Little noted, except perhaps to the mother, the telling wisp of a smile, the brave mask. The aborted dream, the reach that didn’t make it.

…It bends me over and I cry.

Secrets I know. Boulders I see on the trail the young ones will take. Swamps and dark places.

. . . it bends me over and I cry.

By Shirley Buxton

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 81 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 64 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)
