You don't think about death? You don't visit your parents now and hug Dad just a little longer and realize he got another year older this year and that isn't something that can keep happening forever?

Will their head shake ever so slightly like grandma's did? When your kids talk to them will they trail off mid sentence, smile, and turn around with no warning? What will the hospital be like the first time they stay longer than a day?

I just want to be happy. Some days I wonder what I really want though.
