I know that this blog is over due, and I am sorry for the delay. This last month has really been like a roller coaster ride with a few ups and a lot of downs. A few events of this past month, Jacky's condition not improving, May break and a holiday, Mother's day, our grandmother passed away, and our mom's birthday that we neglected to celebrate.
Been a busy month. A few things that make me think about being human and just being alive in general.
Life is not fair.........the sooner you learn this the easier you'll make things for yourself. How is it fair that a 23 year old newly graduated university student with his whole life and all his dreams in front of him is taken away in an instant with no advance notice? It isn't. How is it fair that I am able to take a vacation when there are people starving in many places of the world? It isn't. How is it fair that Mothers are only shown appreciation one day of the year? It isn't. How is it fair that Aileen was denied a visa to Canada in order to meet my grandparents, only to have me plan a trip for this summer alone and too late because my grandmother just passed away. It isn't. How is it fair that we decide to give my mother space to grieve rather than wish her a happy birthday, and then find out we disappointed her further? It isn't.
Bottom line is life is not fair and you should not expect it to be or you will only be sad and disappointed. So what do we do with this knowledge? Live life as if every day was our last. Tell those you love that you love them, you can't say it enough it could be your last chance. Be kind to everyone, you have no idea of the hardships they may have been through. Help those you can and accept help from others. Be happy for what you have now...your health, your loved ones, and just the simple beauty of life itself.
Again I am sorry this blog took so long to write but it has been a trying time. thanks again for reading and as usual any comments are welcome.
