It's Always Something

I haven't posted for a while. My heads been in a muddle since receiving news last week that a dear friend had passed after an amazingingly courageous nine year battle with cancer.

She left behind two beautiful sons who are mostly grown but she had lots of parenting left to do as well as daughtering, sistering and friending...and lots more stuff, too. 

In other words, 53 is just too young to say goodbye.

So, that's been on my mind and has kept my heart heavy.

In the midst of this, there have been a few life obligations that have also weighed on my tiny, little mind. I have worked to cross them off my list...and, with their completion, breathed a sigh of relief as they were a source of stress.

Lo and behold, this morning -- as is the nature of life -- another stress-inducing obligation popped up on my personal horizon and I found myself saying, "Man, it's always something, isn't it?"

Well, yes, it is. It is always something.

Thank God.


  1. Always something...
    I'm so sorry for your loss.
    Hope it gets life gets better and your "somethings" become easier to handle.

  2. Sorry about your friend; 53 is way too young to go. I have bras that old.

  3. Thanks so much, Michelle. Life="somethings, " doesn't it? It means we're still kicking! Thanks for reading today!

  4. Me, too, Michele. That gave me the best laugh I've had in three months...THANKS!

  5. Oh, my dear friend.
    MY dearest friends both have cancer. Husband and wife.
    Her first.
    We said... "I don't know what he will do without her."
    He won't have to do without her.
    Prognosis for both is maybe 5 years...
    ... if they are lucky...
    two of the best people in this world.
    It is no fucking wonder i drink.
    I'm so very sorry for your loss.
    ... drinking doesn't help...

  6. I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. Here is a little something that may bring a smile :)
