just have to keep moving forward

Great weekend, all my children are home so there is lots to do and be grateful for.  And then, he throws a line out.  Late at night, out of nowhere.  I confess, I read it.  Then deleted and blocked the number.  But, it's there...in my head.  Just enough to bother me and distract me.  Exactly what he wanted.

It's that unfinished business thing that still hangs on for me.  I know he just wants to engage me and it will all go terribly wrong. 

So, for today it's a struggle.

Just a little slip up.

Brush yourself off, and keep your feet moving until you regain your strength. It's hard I know, to not look when it happens.

It's almost like a car wreck. It's there, you look before thinking, and then you regret it. Take notice, it is better to delete and to be prepared for it in the future. Delete it as soon as you realize who it's from.

Evidently you haven't blocked hard enough. 

Keep moving, keep advancing the ball.  You can't win, if you don't.

Those of you out there who think it would be nice to hear from them one last time, take notice.  It's never pretty.

We only miss what could have been. I know I don't miss what it really was.
