Distractions never distract me and that’s hard to deal with but at least i manage to apply on people who need to take their minds off hard matters.
The last few days were felt really weired.
we, at our home, had a cat called 6o6o for the last 18 years…suddenly 6o6o died. My kids were introduced to the process of death step by step as 6o6o struggled death for ten minutes…Mom who were the most attached to 6o6o felt horrible while she arranged the burying with 3am mohamed convincing him that pets need to buried as well and almost begging him not to throw the corps in the garbage.
All of that was informed to me by my kids when i returned home from work and after i had a little nap because i was so tired…i wondered how could they sense not to tell me right away and waited till i was a little better.
I was so sad and the whole house turned gloomy…JoJo kept asking about death and how painful it looked when 6o6o was dying…they wondered did gedo hasan went through the same pain, will i die soon and will i hurt or it is just animals.
Regardless of my answers the subject brought so many unanswered questions to my own head….I won’t discuss them though!
I tried my best to distract them…fighting my own sadness and trying to make the day of a six year old and an eight year old a little easy and nice.
The next day i took them swimming, bowling, had lunch then watched bat man ( I don’t care what they call it ) in the movies…they were beat and full of snacks when we headed home and most of all they were distracted…I wish I or someone else could manage to do that to me…
Distractions never distract me.
and that’s a shame.
