WHEN SUDDENLY, IT’S TOO LATE – Marilyn Armstrong

There are family issues that go on for years. Many years and in some cases, generations. Yet somehow, you are sure that one day, it’ll get fixed.

One day you realize no, it won’t get fixed. Time has run out. We got old. The world changed. Someone got sick, someone else died. We couldn’t travel anymore.

The time we were sure we had — all the promises of tomorrow — vanished.

What a shame. Maybe it’s better to fix things before they linger on through the generations, before time and illness and the calamities we never foresee arrive without warning and close down the years ahead.

When all of a sudden, the future isn’t anything like you thought it would be, it’s good to have settled the issues. It’s a thought to ponder in bad times that showed up when no one expected them. We thought things were bad enough, but it turns out, there was worse to come.

  1. Reblogged. Your thoughts co-incide with something that happened to me over the weekend. More optimistic people say “It’s NEVER too late.” Well I have to beg to differ.
