SUCH IS LIFE

tragedy
and pleasure
all mixed in
unpredictably 
randomly
unexpectedly 
good
evil
sad
happy
horrific

and just when I report the news on 

concerning a town we drove through every time we went to visit college kiddo
(to get a home-made kolache...)
that our area is all working together to send needed items after this tragic event 

we have a sad sad report that a local baby has been killed
I can barely speak of it...a police report like we never ever ever have
comes in at the same time I get the great news that our golf team has made it to the regional playoffs
and that our little league field has new turf


so many prayers needed this day
and yet still appropriate to count many a blessing

...and the sun shone like a red wafer in the sky...

I want to add my blessing here...so simple and such a long story but trust me...it is an abundant answer to a specific prayer:  I just walked the few blocks down our street in the warm breeze to return the wheelbarrow my oldest daughter and I share...it's her turn...I'm resting.  It had to be one of the nerdiest things I have ever done...but I did it with such a sense of gratitude.

ps...on a side note- did you know that your blog went to REALLY small print? So small that is hard to read? Just wondered if you knew-

All words left me after Boston. I was tired of the world and wanted to hide away somewhere quiet and still. When I came out of hiding it seemed worse. But, you are right and we need to go on living and loving life and pray the good thoughts and actions win out over the bad.
I can't access your 'One For The Indians' post. Is it up?

so sad, leaves one asking why,
I think you did a very non nerdy thing, pushing a wheel barrow can be therapy,

Not nerdy, Gina. Healing. Just keep pushing on...with life or a wheelbarrow.
Hugs,T.

You always seem to know just how to express the feelings we all have, and you've done it again here. Thank you for sharing your heart ... even the nerdy part.
Hugs!
