Life sucks … does it really?

Friday, March 27, 2009

As the weekend begins, I can’t help remember what my husband commented on yesterday.

“Do you think we’ll have a quiet weekend? It’s like a never ending drama every week”I think he felt like saying, “WTF”( I just recently found out what that meant – one of the reasons that give my family a laugh! Even after almost 25 years, I’m still language-challenged!)Anyway,

I can enumerate all the tragedies that my family ever encountered.
Looking back, I just felt like saying,

“Oh yeah, life definitely sucks!”Does it really?

Let’s see – we can start just a few weeks back:
A few weekends ago: another what-ifs..pins and needles - my first car accident with
my 13yo and 8yo sons to TaeKwon-Do.
( I recently have nightmares of me being in a “collision” sandwiched between 2
cars!)


Couple of weekends ago: my 17-year old sent me a text message:
“Mom, I need to go to the hospital. I fell and I’m bleeding all over!”
He was skateboarding and fell on his face!
He ended up getting 20 stitches on his lip and chin!
(Same ER room, same plastic surgeon, same injury that my 8yo got 2 years ago!
What are the odds?)


Last week: A dreadful phone call from Florida, “Dad’s having a heart attack!”
Definitely positive ending to a dreadful day!

As I am writing this, I got another anxious call ...

STOP…

PAUSE…

Life sucks!!...Not really. Those are stressful weekends but all had happy endings.

Everyone’s fine.
Everyone’s healing.
Everyone’s laughing.

As my 8yo says, “It’s okay mom, everything’s gonna be A – OK!”
So young and already a philosopher!
Yes, my son, we are blessed with the ability to react to different situations.
It’s not the events that matter. It’s how we face them and move forward!

So I just have to say, “Break a leg!”
( Kids: take note – I didn’t say Don’t Break a Leg this time!)

  1. Honey,
    Very well said.
    The "what ifs" drive me crazy too.
    But, I am going to try and focus on our good luck. G-d was looking out for us.
    I am very grateful for all our good fortune these past months -
    Josh is right - we are A-OK!!!
    Love, Mom

  3. Thank you... I still learn from my children every day. Their minds are so untainted that it just gives me a nudge once in a while =D
