Ain't life grand..........???? Well??????
Pose a question like that and you are likely to get an answer. So that is what I am doing. How is life going for you right now?
A newish (don't ya love made up words?) blog friend Mother Moon's Message had a wonderful blog today about how folks treat each other, for better or worse. And it got me to thinking. Oh no, not that. I'll tell ya mine if you tell me yours.
I have shared with you my panic about my crowded house and loss of my studio space, my "triumphs" sorta with Ry and my pride in my daughter's efforts and my awestruck love of my GK and most especially my love of my Sweet Man. I have shared my frustration at not being able to suffer fools very well and my snarky outlook on the world. I have even touched on depths my depression and past life issues as they relate to the now. But it's one of those glass half full, glass half empty kinda things. It all depends how you look at it and how you cope with the outlook that make the difference.
Every morning, I look at how everyone else is doing. How life is treating you, how you will face the day, how you made something wonderful, or had a tragedy in your life, or got your feelings hurt and how I can fit into helping by commenting. Some days I have it in me to participate, some days not so much. Sometimes I feel worthy to say something, some days it's best to keep my opinion to myself. Some days I want to be a friend and some days I can just barely hang on to what is right in front of me.
And the thing is my expectation is that you are out there feeling pretty much the same way on some days.
So rather than expecting you to fulfill my needs, or thinking that you will always have something to say to me, even if I would love to hear it, I realize that you too have "issues, needs, lives, hurts, and life" that keep you busy.
But don't for one minute think that that diminishes my affection for you. I'm just glad to be alive. My new favorite song is by Kenny Chesney and Dave Matthews, I'm Alive. I'm glad, for whatever reason, we have bumped into one another. To quote from Shakespeare (badly of course because it's me), "if I should offend", please accept my apologies and chalk it up to the snarky, self absorbed periods of life, because I would never knowingly snark you (unless you are line with me at Walmart and then whateva).
So, I really am asking, How are you?
