I was talking to a friend today and she started crying. I asked her what was wrong and she thought for a few minutes and said it is a wave of sadness. She said it happens every once in a while and then it goes away. I realize this happens to me. I feel so extremely sad for a time and then it is gone! We spoke for a while and she felt better. We both went back to work. I went home and started thinking about “waves”. When I was a little girl my father would take me to the beach in the summer. I would go into the ocean. It was great to feel the water on my body. I enjoyed the time at the beach and the time with my father. This was a positive time in my life which gave me some of my best memories. But even with all this happiness sometimes a wave would come from no where and knock the wind out of me. I would feel like I was drowning and become so scared. My father would jump into the water and take me back to the sand where I would feel better. I then thought about the conversation with my friend and saw that life is like the beach. There are times where we are swimming and having fun unaware there is a wave in back of us ready to knock us down. I guess we can ride the wave until it passes but sometimes it is nice to have someone bring us back to the beach.
