Life has been heartbreaking lately. Ups and downs and twists and turns to the point that I’m straight up dizzy.
It’s been a time of appreciating the fragility of life, the people I love and letting go of the less important things.
People often shake their heads when they hear that ANOTHER thing has happened to our family, but frankly I’m tired of that attitude. Trust me, I’m exhausted as you would expect, but I’m also immensely thankful. Things may not be always easy or sunshine and rainbows, but I feel lucky that the people I love the most are still with me – truly walking miracles.
Sure. There are times when I wonder if we did something bad in a past life, like were really nasty ants or something, or perhaps this is all to prepare us for something down the road, or maybe it’s just to strengthen our relationship and love so that we have no regrets when the end comes.
Things like “oh you guys have the worst luck!” Or “here we go again” makes me sad and makes it hard to explain. I choose to think that we are indeed lucky! To think that everyone has SURVIVED thus far, with all the INSANE things that have happened, makes me believe that we are truly the LUCKIEST people I know.
Perhaps we are trusted to handle the tough things, because God knows we aren’t going to lose our minds, or that we will use the added understanding and compassion to help others? I’m not exactly sure the reasoning and I’m fairly certain I will never fully understand it all. But Hey….. we’re all here.
And I think… if we can make it through this… we can make it through anything :)
