Ok, it’s hard to believe, but I’ve had little to say. Scratch that. I’ve had lots to say, but honestly, much of it shouldn’t be said out loud in polite company. As my mom taught me, if you can’t say something nice, you shouldn’t say anything at all…so as my mood would have it, it is best I not say anything at all. Ok, scratch that too. My poor close friends have been listening to me all this time. So I’ve not been silent. Just selective.
I’ve found it very difficult lately to see the good in people, the silver lining in the clouds or the light at the end of the tunnel. Personal issues, health issues…we all have them. Many of my friends are going through tough times as well. Some are experiencing a family illness, some, the breakup of a marriage, others financial difficulties. Who doesn’t have problems? It’s these problems that have made me wonder what on earth is going on anymore. I know, that I’m getting to “that age” where our parents are aging and illness creeps in and where we begin to feel each year of “experience” we’ve enjoyed in our joints. Call it a mid-life crisis. Call it reality. Either way, it is having an effect on me. So what do you do about it? I haven’t a clue. If I figure it out, I’ll let you know.
