I Thought vs. I Know
Chapter two, The Pool Of Tears: 'Not like cats!' cried the Mouse, in a shrill, passionate voice. 'Would you like cats if you were me?' Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll
The mouse was easy to offend and Alice did it again and again. She thought they were friends via shared adventure, the mouse knew they never would be.
I'm reminded by this card Rob and I have been married 40+ years and not one of his family have expressed any interest or concern, in any way, about my cancer, nor have they offered any support to Rob. Silly me to think they might; I learned early in the marriage to never expect anything and I'd never be disappointed.
