Sometimes we are in our own little bubble when death slaps us in the face. This has been a tough weekend. Two very special families to me lost someone they love. It’s terrible and not fair. But, it reminded me that we are not guaranteed tomorrow.
Aside from the circus our own world can be much more is happening around us. Sometimes I get down in the dumps or angry but on days like this I am thankful.
I am blessed to have such wonderful supportive people in my life. People that I have grown so close too. It can be frustrating when others do not realize the challenges you may be facing and honestly some people can be downright mean. This week I will be home with my babies because of death. Everyone should get to grieve and if that means that my babysitter must go that is how it is. My son has special needs which means he requires special care and I do not expect everyone to get it. If you don’t know or care to learn about autism that is on you. But, it means that he needs me more then a neurotypical child. He requires extra attention, extra patience and extra love. I can count on my hands the amount of people I trust to give that to him. This weekend has made me think a lot about where I want to be versus where I am. Everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
Be nice, be kind and be generous. Be nice even when someone may not be nice to you. Be kind because those who seek kindness show it in the worst ways. And be generous because one day when the tables are turned you will wish that someone would do the same for you. Whether being generous is in regards to your time, money or anything else just do it. And keep looking forward if that’s the direction you are headed for.
