Intensely close

No comments :
My parents came to visit again today. It was an odd visit: they were here for a shorter time than normal, and had less to say than normal. My mom in particular was very quiet, while my dad was equally silent - but this is normal for him now.

The silent moments were more strained, and I feel so guilty for not knowing how much they are going through.

After they left, I remembered how much they love each other. They've been together for 31 years - I've been with Shaun for four - I imagine that their love for each other is at least seven times more intense than my love for Shaun, and I love him pretty intensely.

I can't imagine how my mom feels knowing how close she is to losing him.
