I feel sad. The last few weeks have been some crazy good ups.. and also some normal lows.
Tonight I stumbled upon the blog of a lady who lost her four year old son.
Why read it you ask? Why put yourself through emotional turmoil and not just glaze over and pretend that life is all pretty, and sweet and rainbows and happiness?
I don't know. Because life isn't?
It's scary as you get older and you love more people.
I have a great life. I'm very blessed. Perfect little boys, a hubby who adores my quirks. A lot of opportunity, a lot of hard work, healthy family.. mostly healthy friends, excitement, gratification..
But am I the only one who thinks that it can't stay this good? Something's got to give?
There have been some great hardships and sorrow in friend's lives lately. As you accumulate more love, it leaves you more vulnerable to life's unfair challenges.
No one will ever know why our paths have been chosen for us. Tomorrow, it could all change - for better.. for worse.
I make sure I am thankful every day. I am thankful for my angel. He watches over me and my family. Keeps me safe. Gives me comfort.
Keeps us safe, gives us comfort.
