Tears In My Eyes...


A story of life's lessons learned late in life, too late for some things, but not too late for the learning in the retelling and reminiscing.

Funny how that is. Yet so common.

Read the comments, too.  Although this is not truly a story about brokenness, it reminds me of the words of Ernest Hemingway:
"The world breaks everyone. But afterwards many are strong at the broken places."
What it is, is a story of what we may not learn at the time events in our lives take place, but what, nonetheless, remains to teach us when we are ready for the learning.  Or, more plainly, just an old fashioned youthful love story with some missing bits filled in much, much later. Poignant. Sweet. Universal.
