Why us?

Why Us? | andreaenright.net

 

Why us?

I’m only 24.

Why us?

And he’s only 30.

Why us?

We can’t handle this.

Why us?

We don’t even live near family.

Why us?

We’ve already had enough tragedy in our lives.

Why us?

And pennies to our name.

Why us?

I just don’t get it.

 

 

A whiny little list.

As if anyone deserves to get cancer.

But still, every night – and this is a new feeling – I can’t hold myself together.

I scream and I cry.

Like the walls are closing in on me.

And I think to myself

or I sob out loud

 

Why us?

    So sorry you are having such a rough time. Praying for strength, for both of you, to carry you to the finish line of this battle/race. We are in a 6 week study of Psalms. Dom wants us to write one ourselves. I think you just did, a Psalm of lament. Keep writing. He is with you, even if you don’t feel it, but I WANT you to feel it, want you to feel some comfort, some care, some answers. So, I’m just going to keep praying until you do. Love you you so much.

      Oh, cancer is making me write SO many psalms. I love that lamenting is Biblical, cuz I’m getting SUPER good at it.
