The first thing that came to mind, honestly, is a couple down the street that is separating. I don't know them that well...just nice neighbors I see every now and then. She stopped her car the other day and the window came down. Said something about their house being up for sale soon if we might be interested when I was on a walk. Then said "We don't dislike each other or anything...we just can't do it anymore." I didn't say much. I would like to think I wasn't judgmental in my mind but just sad for them. What are you supposed to say? They have two kids just hitting high school. The one thing I remember thinking in a sad voice was "stay". Not so much for moral reasons. I'm bound to those reasons by my faith and don't know what her's is...so I can't push that on her. No...it was just because I feel in the depth of my heart that life will only get more sad and frustrating from here by the way she described things. She just seemed restless, like she needed a new beginning, someone that understands her better maybe. But the only way to get those things is...to stay. To start over and over and over until you really do know that other person.
