Nothing Gold

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay. -Robert Frost

I am a white American middle class suburban housewife trying desperately to tell herself that that is not who she is. One time I was a glowing young ruffian. Oh my God it was a million years ago.

Sad News

It feels weird to post this right after my last post, but my dad just called me to tell me that my stepmom died today. She and my dad were divorced. He was pretty upset. It's strange for me because I didn't like her much, but of course it's sad. I really feel sad for my little sister Rachel who's mother she was. Rachel is 20. I also hope that my dad doesn't blame himself. I think he might. It's got to be very confusing for him. He's hated her for so long, but she is the mother of his youngest daughter. He cares about her more than anything. I don't know. It's all very sad and confusing. They aren't religious, but I'm sure my dad and sister could use your prayers if you get a chance.

I prayed for them a little, and will some more. For you too. *Hug*.
