“Someday soon, we’ll all be together. If the fates allow. Until then, we’ll have to muddle through somehow.”
If this quote sounds familiar, you may have sung it before or heard it on the radio. It’s part of the lyrics to the holiday classic, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” originally written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blaine.
These lines are about people we care about not being with us and us missing their absence. Sometimes it’s a temporary absence. Maybe they traveled and wont be back for a while. Maybe they live in a different country or city. Or maybe they’re quarantined/social distancing. But other times, when someone’s passed on, it’s an absence that’s more indefinite. Which ever the case, we can only take things one day at a time. Meanwhile, at the back of our mind, we should remember that no one is fully absent while they’re still present in our hearts and minds. Moreover, it’s only a matter of time until we can physically be together again.Copyright secured by Digiprove © 2020
