Last night, someone shared an old picture of my parents when they were young and happy, before a lot of really crappy things happened. I had this overwhelming feeling of empathy for them, and I went to sleep with tears in my eyes.
This morning, I woke up with the realization that none of us really knows what we’re doing. Not our parents. Not us. Probably not our kids, either. We’re all just sort of groping around in the dark, hoping we get it right, but failing half the time. That thought shook me.
Then a long-time Twitter pal popped in to share this pearl: “You just have to do your best and do it with love.” He’s so right. That’s really all any of us can do.
