Trouble comes at us in a lot of ways. Sometimes it's a mean, old sledgehammer - WHAM! Sometimes it's like an avalanche - look out! Other times, though, it's sneaky, like stepping into quicksand. You don't even know how much you're in until you're really in deep.
It's really easy to go into "woe is me!" mode, and I can't ever say I blame people who hit that level 'cause it's good and scary out there sometimes. But man, there comes a moment where, baby you either sink or swim.
Right now, I'm up to here with being in this quicksand. Enough already with being angry. I was angry with God, angry with the Government, Big Business, just about everyone and everything with a pulse.
Enough. Time to grab the vine, pull myself out, flip the bird to everyone who did their best to screw me, and move on!
Recap: Things really sucked lately. I was mad, but that gets you nowhere. It took a good look at my little girl, playing quietly and happily in the family room tonight, to slap me in the face and remind me just what it is I'm supposed to be doing here on earth. The crying towel is being put away now, folks. It's time to be a big boy. The world is only a bad place if you stop seeing all the good things. I'm as beat-down as I have ever been but I ain't dead. Time for the comeback. So here it goes.
And God and me? We're ok too. He knows me well enough to let me slide when I get out of line.
I'll be back.
Thank you so very much to all those who checked in to see if I hurt myself in my absence :) So nice to be missed.
