Today I’m in the car driving to Albany New York, where my mother in law is a recovering from a fall in her nursing home. Last weekend, we changed our plans and drove to Baltimore because my brother in law hurt himself and couldn’t make the drive to us. Yesterday my administrative employees father in law died, and uncle Franks 16 year old dog Higgins died. All while I’m batteling a head cold that just won’t go away. Plus, it’s really cold outside!!!
I’m not complaining, but it’s been quite the adventure. With regular calls over the weekend to my brother in law to keep abreast of my mother in laws hospital stay and condition. Gathering all the weekend food and libations for the six hour trip to Baltimore to support and share time with my sister. Supporting and helping plan the funeral arrangements for my employees family and offering support for uncle Frank and Doug. And now on a three hour trip to Albany to support and see my mother in law and family.
Sometimes the world gets spinning and all you can do is hang on and go for the ride. If you were to fight or battle it (why me? poor me!) it would most likely create conflict, wade you down or beat you up. As an observer in life, we can just adapt to each event and move forward with the necessary energy needed of us. We cannot change the circumstances, conditions, pace or timing of life. We were born into a human existence for a reason and it is possible we might even be good at it!
