I was grumpy when I woke up today. That is a rarity for me as I am usually a pretty happy person, but this morning I was grumpy and I admit it. Bev needs work on her teeth, and a couple other expenses cropped up, and I was pissing and moaning over the fact that we are always short of money. Sound familiar to anyone?
Then I received news that a writing friend of mine on HubPages lost her husband last night to a massive heart attack. Suddenly, my silliness seemed terribly ridiculous.
One minute we are here and the next minute we are gone, and all the things we wanted to do….all the things we wanted to say…..they will never happen.
I think when Bev gets home today after work I’m just going to spend time with her. The money issues will work out; they always do. I have become so adept at robbing Peter to pay Paul that it has become second nature for me, and who knows what could happen today to generate more income? The point is that each and every minute is precious, and anyone who thinks they are guaranteed tomorrow is a fool.
I think the rest of the day I’m just going to cool my jets and take life as it comes. I can’t solve all the problems. I can’t change everything. I am just a human being who at times struggles but most of the time celebrates life.
For the rest of the day I’m going to celebrate life.
