I do not have it in me to fight culture wars.
It hasn’t yet been three months since Ron died — and I do not have it in me to engage in much of anything on social media.
Except, when people ask for prayers. I can do that.
I can smile at fun family photos, leave my friends’ birthday and anniversary wishes.
I can offer my condolences when they are mourning the loss of someone they care about.
But today I can’t write a real blog post. So instead, with just few moments left before publishing time, I have written: I Can’t.
Instead of writing a real blog post, I went out for my first bike ride on one of the two bikes which Ron and I bought in Arizona. That was healing. I wish he had been with me to go exploring. But he is dead and I am not.
Culture wars are more than this 62 widow can deal with. Forgive me for not spending hours fact-checking. If you want to, have at it. If you want to fight the culture wars, have at it.
I don’t have sufficient courage, strength or tears left.
I just can’t.
