We all have problems. Some of us have problems that would sink the other’s ship. Sometimes I have a hard time just accepting the things I cannot change. Sherry and I have a problem ourselves, but someone especially close to us is truly suffering. Physically for one thing and then family problems are just over powering on top of that.
I run my mouth sometimes over problems, sometimes say things that might hurt, and I become very sorry, but it has never solved a thing. Over the years Sherry and I have been able to walk and talk about our family problems. We were not exempt from senior family problems. Taking care of sick elderly family members has taken a toll. Sherry & Shirl shared the brunt of taking care of my mama in her old age.(It is hard to face the fact that we are the elderly parents now! WHAT?)
I always thought we had enough problems with our boys to sink anyone’s ship, but we made it. Life changes with every generation. Our parents faced the depression, raising a family while looking for work, and still made it.
I can remember when we could not pay to repair our car and I borrowed $60 for 6 months and had a rough time making the $10.35 payments. Now I can laugh at that.
My philosophy has always been, if your problem is health, you really do have a problem. BUT if your only problem is money, you can always get another job, in a pinch a human can work 18 hours a day. We can survive.
My biggest problem is living my favorite prayer as I have said many times on this log.Is the
The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
As I have said many times, that is a good prayer. If you are not a believer, it is still good philosophy.
Just chalk this up as one of those down days, but life is still good. It won’t be long until we head for Florida. Hey we are going on a cruise in a few weeks. Gonna have a good time. Irene is headed up this way but we ain’t skeered.
Thanks for coming by the log.
Laugh at your problems, everyone else does. LOL
This is a ‘55 Nash Rambler. I sewed a cover for the back and we slept in the back with the back gate open with a muslin cover. The morning following the first night sleeping in the mountains, We found two BIG bear prints just below that left back window. Exciting at the time.
