The wind was whipping across my face yet it was still pleasant for it was soft like lavender. Time for reflection. Time for self. I had to reflect on a question asked of me the other day. “On Father’s Day, who would you ask to have  lunch with you?” Oh, good question I thought. “Anyone I asked?” “Yes” came back the reply. “Anyone”. Immediately I thought of my only daughter. She doesn’t talk to me for whatever reason  (she’s never tried to communicate). My oldest son? He’s never tried to communicate In ten years. My dead father? I never really knew him. He was not a  Father that held me close. Never really gave me  Encouragement although I must say I got My education because of him (thanks Dad) My dead Mother? Never really knew her either.  Never really felt close. Ah, I can say it was the times I lived in. My only sibling? My sister who is 4 years older? I love Her, but she is afraid to express her feelings. Doesn’t like Confronting issues with me. At times she feels (to me) Not 4 years older, but 40 years older! So, to beg the question as it was asked. Well, the only person left is                           God ! And my one and only question I would have is this                           Why? The wind stopped, and the rain came. It was soft. I’m still looking for the answer. Can you help me?
