Well... I was tired of never having anything going on in my life when I lived in Charleston, now I have too much going on. Be careful what you wish for.
Since moving to Oklahoma, my mom had a debilitating stroke, my brother is battling cancer, my youngest addict son has moved here with me, and a huge tornado has completely destroyed the city of Moore. We have had severe thunder storms every day for a week.
Life is no longer boring. Quite the opposite.
My mother is fading fast. Her mind and body are slipping every day.
My brother has a good prognosis, I think. I hope.
My son is clean and sober. At least he has been for the past week. One day at a time, as they say.
So with all the bad things happening, good things are as well. My sisters and I have reconnected through all this mess, so that has been very good.
Sometimes it seems for every step forward, I take two steps backward. But if I really take a good look at life, there have been more good things happening than bad. I am so lucky to be surrounded by wonderful people. No matter what happens, I feel I have people to turn to who will give me the love and support I need. You don't get that everywhere. Okies are really the best people in the world.
So now I'm thinking I really don't need any more things going on in my life. In fact, I think I would really like to go back to the days of nothing going on.
Hear that, Universe? I really want smooth sailing from now on. No drama, no crisis, no sorrow.
