GOD BLESS AMERICA

Simple words never meant so much as they do in our world today. Today there will be loss. Someone will lose a loved one by war, illness, or just plain stupidity. The person who just can't take the time to turn their head to the left to check out that blind spot will kill someone today. There are no words for all the illness we face each day and all the loved ones who die from them. I just want to know why! Why do we have to experience heartache? This wasn't in my plan when I was a innocent child. I just wanted to get married, have children and live the happily ever after like a princess does.

When I was having my son 30 years ago I remember my husbands "Nana" saying to us, "Why would anyone want to bring a child into this world?" Good question, I myself think about that very thing often. A child ads so much pleasure to your life but with that comes a lifetime of worry. Never ever ending worry! I seem to be at a crossroad in my life where I wonder (WHY?) what is the point. Of course the point is that the happiness usually outweighs the sadness. (Like having my children over yesterday and playing Wii, it was a perfect day) I have seen the sadness in the eyes and have read the words of those who have lost a child. It is gut wrenching. I am a believer that this is Hell, our time on earth, and Heaven is definitely where we want to be. None of us want to leave yet because we have people we love so dearly here and I totally agree with that. I don't have any grandchildren yet, and I know that I would enjoy them so very much, but then you get a whole new set of worries. I do envy people who are not worriers. My family was bred to be worriers. There is seldom peace of mind. It would be really easy to become an addict but deep inside my mind I know that you can't cover up the worries so you have to face them and move on. I didn't mean to get up on my soapbox today, really! I know that I could delete this but I won't.

I believe that menopause comes with this what is life all about attitude, what was the point and I just don't want to clean my house anymore, cook or be the person who did it all! So now you know where this is coming from, my point of view today. (for those of you who popped over from Headless Mom go ahead and read some of my other posts. I'm not always up on the box. Really, only maybe once a week.) Most of the time it doesn't matter since I have very few follower's. Okay, maybe that's because of the soapbox!

But getting back to today and "God Bless America" I want to say that I am so sorry for those who have lost loved ones to war. I thank all the brave men and woman who have served our country and those who are serving right now to keep us safe. My heart and prayers are always with you. I also want to thank God for bringing my son-in-law home safely from the Iraq war because my daughter could not live without him. I thank God for not picking my husbands number back in the day and I also want to thank God for all the blessings he gives me each and every day of my life. Also I saw this on Twitter today http://tweettoremind.org/ and it's a good thing.
