Despite appearances, everything isn’t always roses and sunshine. (This is where we cue Debbie Downer.)
While I don’t expect perfection, if you asked me what the last 18 months have been like, I’d tell you that it has kind of sucked. I’ve had some personal stuff going on (sorry, not dishing the dirt here) and my daughter has had to have surgery 3 times for issues relating to a Thyroglossal Duct Cyst. We’re heading for another surgery (this one related to a hole in her ear drum) sometime before she starts school next fall. So, things have certainly been less than roses and sunshine around here and it’s really easy to dwell on that.
At least it was.
I found out Saturday afternoon that a woman I know through our mom’s group lost her husband, and the father of her three very young boys, early Saturday morning. His death was sudden, unexpected and has left her world in shambles.
My problems suddenly seem small in comparison…
