The Present Day

"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That's why it is called the 'present.'"  ~Eleanor Roosevelt

I had planned to blog on a different subject today, but seeing this on someone else's Facebook status today made me think of something a bit more timely.

We had a "little" incident at our house last night. A shocking one, to say the least. Some things came to light -- quite by accident -- that had been hidden for the past year.

All I can say is: WOW!

Sometimes you find out you don't know someone as well as you thought you did hurts.


It was amazing, really. The fact that it happened; the fact that it happened without our knowing it; and the fact that one of us had a hint that something was amiss, while the other was completely bamboozled. Completely.


So we know now. It's out in the open, and I think (hope!) all the various layers of the "onion" have been peeled back so that we're at the center with tons of onion pieces around us, causing our eyes to smart with tears.

And there are tears...many, many tears.


But where to go from here?

I think the collective thoughts are that trust has been shaken and respect has been lessened. Time will most certainly heal all the wounds...and trust and respect can be re-earned.

We all just need some time...


But when exactly does that start?

There's no time like the present. After all, today is a gift.
