Then there are those moments in your life that for everything you do, everything you are, you can do nothing to fix things. In some cases, its just the way life is. A child in a hospital can bring a man to his knees and make him cry. He'd give anything to fix his child and is totally helpless, all he can do is hold her (or him) and reassure the little one he isn't going anywhere... Mom's have gone mad watching their children do the craziest things as they let them "fly"... helpless as they have to watch from a sideline, a kitchen window, or anywhere as their youngster takes that step growing up... helpless knowing they can only do so much!
As we get older, other events happen reminding us quickly, we may have learned "everything", but we don't have all the answers and quickly those helpless feelings creep back in. Loved ones become ill, and while emotional support seems great, it doesn't ever feel like enough. You still feel helpless. You can do a million things... but at the end of the day there will always be certain things you just can't fix... leaving you feeling helpless!
I love you Grandma!
Thanks for teaching us to always have fun!
