Sometimes I wonder if never having kids is the saddest part of my life or a true blessing in disguise. Oh, I've had a hand in raising some kids but there was always a wall to make sure that my influence was limited to some degree. I'm the end of a line and I think about that plenty.
One of the things that gets to me is that families hug. Even families that fight hug when things are okay. I don't have anyone to hug. That's just weird.
That's not me feeling sorry for myself. I love a lot of folks and a lot of people are really good to me. Really good.
