My new favorite word!
Poof... like the people/friends/"family" who suddenly disappeared from my life when my husband died. Where have you all gone?
Poof... like promises of help that were made and never acted on.
Poof... like the honoring of my husband's birthday and upcoming death anniversary by others.
Poof... like the hopes I had that I could secure my kids' future...
Poof... like the sense of health within my own family -- cancer (again)!
Poof... like the feeling of calm most people enjoy before sleep at night which I've had to say adieu to.
Poof... like the respect I used to have for certain people who have, in the last year, proven that they are useless, self-absorbed human beings.
