Small Town Coroner
Another year has come and gone....and so has my hair. When you look back at those old photos you can sometimes wonder if that was even you. I found a picture from my high school graduation with my mom and dad. They\'ve been gone a long time. My parents were both government attorneys. They always worked and we rarely spent time together. I spent most of my afternoons and evenings studying or working. Even though they had me they never were comfortable around children. I think that is part of the reason I never had any brothers or sisters. They were always surprised when I didn\'t follow in their footsteps. But the live they lived was never mine. I had a wife who could light up any room and a daughter with more energy than I could remember having. I was different than them. From everyone I guess you could say. Although I can rarely say that I was out of place with my wife and daughter. I wonder what they would think of me now. I\'ve changed dramatically since then. I\'m a new creation with Christ. Midnight is nudging my hand time to eat. Another night in the books.
