Running Out

Time is measured now by what is running out…the toothpaste we shared, the dental floss, the toilet paper and paper towels you picked up before you left, Audrey’s baby shampoo.

    I have a bottle of my Mom's cologne which I wear every now and then. But mostly, I'll just sniff the scent from the bottle as I don't want it to run out either. I just wanted to drop a note to let you know that I am thinking of you and Audrey and wishing you well.
