no one really posts on here, but i am going to...maybe someone will read it months after the fact.
but, i think it's necessary to post this...in regards to corrina's post seen below.
a number of us have hit some road blocks...hard spots...tough times lately. i'm reading blogs thinking, "man, everyone's kind of going through some crazy stuff right now." some more than others.
i was having a discussion at lunch with some coworkers today...usually we talk about the housewives of atlanta, or other cotton candy-type topics. today was pretty serious. we talked about hard things that happen in our lives and how sometimes we find ourselves asking, "why me?" my friend shared something she had heard on a tv show...something on tlc. a family had a couple children with a crazy life-threatening-fluke-only on tlc-kind of illness. the parents were asked if they've every wondered, "why us?" their response was, "we realized that maybe we are experiencing this because we have enough supports to handle it."
my friend who was sharing this story is going through some crazy stuff and she started crying to us (whoa)...sharing how she is grateful for the supports around her so she can handle what is being thrown at her. stuff that maybe others couldn't handle.
so...i'm thinking of all of you. and myself. whether it's health/kids/finances/loneliness/work/family/testimony...we are dealing with a lot. we have our families...we have each other.
we can do this.
