The Golden Girls

Dear Carter,
I'm really trying to keep your blog updated again, and tonight this thought came to me so I thought that I'd better just run with matter how crazy it may seem!

I know that I'm going to get teased non-stop for this, but I still have to put it out there.

I LOVE The Golden Girls!!I know, I know, I know. Such a random thought to be putting on your blog, but I just have to say it. I LOVE The Golden Girls. Each and every one of them because they all bring something different to the table (so to speak!...if you've ever watched the show, you get that pun).

The thing about this show is that I don't even have to DVR is just always ALWAYS on in the middle of the night when I can't sleep because I'm thinking about you, or waking up because I'm still somehow on your schedule after all this time.

This show makes me laugh so hard, and for just a few moments while I'm watching it, I can forget about how much I miss you as I go on a journey with these ladies through whatever silly problem they are working through in their half hour. At the end of the half hour, they find their solution, make a few jokes about it, eat a cheesecake, and everyone is happy.

Last night as the episode was ending, I thought to myself...why can't real life be like this?

That's when it hit me.

Maybe, just maybe it is?

Maybe life on this Earth is like that half hour show. Although it is much MUCH longer than a half hour, maybe in the grand scheme of things it really isn't.

I've always believed that this part of my life where I miss you like crazy is only one tiny moment in time. That I will be with you for much MUCH longer than I will be without you.

So, maybe we go around trying to work through our problems, trying to heal our broken hearts, but in the end when our show is over, we will make a few jokes, eat a cheesecake, and everyone will be happy.

Sounds nice to me.

P.S. Now the theme song is running through my head again. "Thank you for being a friend..."

Still sad from the lost of most of the cast, the re-runs are priceless.
