since i started blogging,
it is that life happens while doing so...
there have been many times
that i have virtually travelled to places
far from my life on the lane.
i've read of pain and sorrow...
i have felt very, very guilty
to return "home" to my story
of maggie's frito-smelling-feet.
or other times...
i will have done my daily read
and will have said prayers along the way
for those who are actually suffering
from the aforementioned pain or sorrow,
only to see (on my tracker)
that those who are suffering have visited me
and have read my petty post
about the lyrics of some random song.
i feel guilty then, too.
does it happen to you???
today, i'm feeling a little guilty
admitting that we spent a rather uncomfortable night
without air conditioning,
(it's fixed now)
and i slept with one of these:
(a reusable ice-pack that came in our igloo cooler)
between katherine and me.
we made it through the night
as did john and maggie with the fan on them!!!
but, i wonder if it's ok to post about something so trivial on the heels of our community having lost one of its youth two nights prior??? is it ok to write about something so insignificant when around the world there are mothers and fathers who have lost their children, respectively... who no longer have a child to share an ice pack with on a hot and humid night???
i don't know...
i just know that life goes on,
and i cannot take for granted one single moment.
if you are reading and are hurting,
i can empathize with a lot;
i can sympathize with the rest,
and i do...
and i hope while i can write
light, sweet, and sometimes humorous posts
you can smile or laugh with me or even at me...
i hope that i am able to take your mind off
that which is making you sad..
if only for a moment:)
love and blessings,
