After my last confusing attempt to disentangle my thoughts and set them out electronically, I thought I’d better, um, stop writing. In my head, the last post was hysterical. (I know! Can you believe that? The post might have tripped over a humor gopher hole, but it didn’t land in anyone’s lap with a sparkly feather boa.) Sigh.
Just like I can’t hide my riding level, I can’t hide that our life is in snow-globe mode right now. Shaun’s mom is not doing well, it doesn’t look good. Shaun is trying to sort out a medical mystery issue of her own. Lily has been very ill and needs a risky surgery. A friend’s son was severely injured in a freak accident. Our family is praying a lot, never a bad thing. (But I’d prefer they were all prayers of thanks instead!) This has all hit my “worry” button, which overrides any iota of humor I might possess. It’s all serious stuff, that needs to be handled seriously. I believe in the power of the funny bone along with prayer: but I seem to have misplaced mine.
I’m hoping if I tell y’all the truth, it will be easier on everyone. It’s honest at least. You may be getting some of the smaller, dumb, silly-funny moments. My life never lets me take myself seriously for too long. (My brain is quite pompous, and frequently needs to get over itself. I play jokes on it all the time.)
Thank you for hanging in with me. Whatever your faith or method of sending positive energy to people, all the above people could use a big dose of the divine. In my case it’s God, but I have lots of room for all beliefs (that do not harm others) so whether it’s prayer, positive thoughts, a moment of silence, a note dropped in a prayer wheel, an orange, rice, some flowers in offering, we’d all sure appreciate your expressions of healing energy!
