Who’s Bored…

I like to look back over my past blogs…kind of like reading my diary…to see what was going on this time last year…and the year before that…

Sometimes I notice that the same things are happening at the same time every year…like my spring allergies…I always think they are the worst ever…but…my blog begs to differ…they sound just about the same as they did last year…

Interestingly…this morning…as I looked at last year’s post for the last day of April…I realized that last year I in no way imagined all the changes that would take place in my life over the next 365 days…some I like…and some not so much…but…still…liked or not…so many things have happened that I would never have dreamed of…

Bertha…gently reminded me…that’s the way it should be…I shouldn’t be able to predict everything that will happen in my life…that being able to do so…would make for a pretty boring existence…

And…I sit here and contemplate that…of course she’s right…it would be boring…but then I think…sometimes…boring is good…isn’t it…

Then…she hits me over the head with a skillet…

Okay…I didn’t see that coming…guess I won’t be bored after all…

Stormy Weather…

It’s springtime in the South…and…that usually means…stormy weather…this year is no exception…

The prediction is for rain this morning…but by afternoon…there is the possibility for…hail…floods…tornadoes…straight line winds…you name it…we could get it

Now…I’m not afraid of storms…although I’ve lived through enough of them to have a healthy respect for them…but I find the forecast very unsettling…it’s the not knowing exactly what is going to happen…where it is going to happen…when it is going to happen…that gets to me…when and if it happens…I deal with it appropriately…

Bertha…said…weather is a lot like my life…for any given situation…it is the not knowing that gets me…when and if it happens…I can handle it…
