That was the great thing about Emily. She saw the world through simple eyes. My priorities are upside down in comparison to hers. The "here and now" was what was important to Emily. I spend my days getting things ready for the "what's next" and the "just in case" and I miss the present. I rationalize that someone's got to take care of business.
Emily put the balance in my life. How I miss that girl.
